"The best band in Melbourne right now or anytime since they started keeping records on such things."
Mark Monnone, 2010
OK, the boy Monnone is given to hyperbole but Milk Teddy's debut single a couple of years ago was pretty special. They sound even better now - think the subtle intensity of McCarthy and the full-blooded rattle of Straitjacket Fits. They don't have songs called XTC and Sparks for nothing - Milk Teddy's keyboards are by turns playful psych pop and dramatically atmospheric.
There's a live tape for sale now. This is a little something before we get a whole Milk Teddy album in the autumn.
