Merchandise, Milk Music

Merchandise

Merchandise is the result of years and years of hallucinatory heat and musical quarantine in the skinhead mecca of Tampa, FL. A trio-gone-duo-gone-trio again, the band has been active since 2008, releasing numerous cassettes and CD-R's, along with two full-length LP's on Katorga Works. It's members (RCC, PDB, DMV) all have strong roots in the underground punk community, having released records and toured with much too many acts to be mentioned in this fragment of a bio.

2012's "Children of Desire" marks a turning point for the band. Their initial post-punk palette has begun to actively incorporate various influences from krautrock soundscapes to country ballads, from 1950's crooners to Madchester dopers. Sounds and ambitions have grown and multiplied. The platform continues to grow and the future remains uncertain, but Merchandise show no signs of slowing down. Expect more tours and records and movies and books and etc and and and…

Milk Music

A very loud, and electric power trio lends a fuzz blanket over classic american songwriting in the vain of Dinosaur Jr., The Feelies, Hüsker Dü. Unlike other underground bands tackling pop via hardcore today, MILK MUSIC strays from the commonly generic reverb and surf sound to strengthen their no bullshit policy of presenting good songs, and for that they come off as a real band in an era of genre biting.
