"So the tune that came out in 1998 that Lankou mentioned must have been released after he died.."
Or that just means there are 2 Mikey Simpsons:
One is the singer you are refering to (a 7" of his was repressed some time ago, with a sleeve with his pic on it).
The other is the producer of MCS label, the one i was thinking of.

everyone forgets Ari Up was in New Age Steppers? imo that was her best gig.

oh and maybe you are listing original sources (of their fame), but not listing roots radics for bingi bunny is missing it a bit.

quite a sad list...
