Born on November 10, 1966 in Sheffield, he was an English musician and record producer, known for being the bassist of the alternative rock band Pulp.

Since then, Mackey has played on all of their studio albums. It was not long ago that he became a successful producer who has worked with popular bands and, perhaps for this reason, in October last 2022 he announced that he would not be joining Pulp for their final reunion tour.
