OFFICIAL BIOGRAPHY


The Vienna-actionists of Rock.

It took me six hours to come up with that term, and since Mark Robinson is paying me 4 dollars and 20 cents worth of White Castle hamburgers for this piece it means that my hourly wage equals something like two thirds of a burger excluding the slice of pickle. "But man doesn't live on bread alone." Nope. I'll just put another "nickel" in my "nickelodeon" cuz all I want is loving you, dear reader, and music, music, music. Where Peter Brotzman and Hans Bennick's "Ein Halber Hund Kann Nichts Pinkeln" ("half of a dog cannot urinate") E.P. failed, SEXUAL MILKSHAKE are victorious. I played the pre-release cassette for my mommy (I still live at home and I'm 34) and her exact words were: "What is this? Sounds like if the Vienna-Aktion performance art and a self-mutilation group would have gained access to a 1976 Cramps rehearsal tape and decided to cover it using Marcel Marceau as a conductor." That's what my momma said. And it would really upset me if you called my mommy a liar.

I like this band a whole lot. They sent me a record a few months ago that I listened to everytime I felt sorry for myself not owning any Desperate Bicycles singles. The E.P. came with a "Space Gnome" mask but I decided not to wear it because Man is created equal and I would not tolerate anybody making fun of ethnic minority groups in my presence.

SEXUAL MILKSHAKE played New York's prestigious "Spiral" a couple of months ago. The intricate choreography and spectacular stage sets were like a low budget version of Madonna's "Blond Ambition" tour, but where Madonna was overtly commercial and "Hollywoodized," SEXUAL MILKSHAKE were not afraid of being political. Was it me, or was the whole set one biting parody of George Bush's Middle East policy?

Anyway, to sum this up, SEXUAL MILKSHAKE are a college-rock band with indie-influences playing alternative rock. They sound exactly like Nirvana and have really long hair and were formed in Seattle where they all used to walk Bruce Pavitt's dog. They were signed to Atlantic Records but forced to change their name to Eleventh Dream Day. Their next L.P. was recorded in Manchester, England, where the band is from, and will feature an extended dance remix of the title cut "Kinky Afro" featuring D.J. Quick rapping.

ANOTHER BIOGRAPHY


Formed in the late 1980s in Harrisonburg, VA, Sexual Milkshake originally consisted of three members: Sexua, Lmil, and Kshake (also known as Greg Allen, Chris Callahan, and Todd/Rusty Massie, respectively). Their musical philosophy could best be summed up in a comment Greg Allen once tossed off: "Tune schmoon, just play!" Too dumb to be called art rock and too smart to be called retarded rock, Sexual Milkshake walked the fine line that separated clever and stupid. The only conventional aspect of this band was the fact that they lived out the alt rock cliché of having a female bassist, a role originally filled by Ame Dread and later by Jill Murphy. After releasing a 7" on the influential Teenbeat label, they went on to release a full-length CD and LP titled Sing Along in Hebrew on the same label. Sexual Milkshake deserves a place in the footnotes of rock & roll history for their extravagant product packaging as much as their twisted musical creations. For example, their lead singer invented what he dubbed the "Gregtar," an unwieldy monstrosity of a guitar that was comprised of two guitar bodies attached to both ends of a guitar neck. Each end contained a separate pickup that could be plugged into a different amplifier. Sexual Milkshake are also noteworthy because their CD and LP are among the most lavishly packaged albums of all time. Sing Along in Hebrew contains a 12-page tabloid-sized booklet, chopsticks, a 3-D poster of the band, 3-D gorilla glasses with a scratch & sniff banana, a '60s-style nudie matchbook, a mermaid drinking glass companion, and -- oh yeah -- the record. After a moderately successful four-year career, the band stopped playing together in 1993. Drummer Chris Callahan co-founded Blast Off Country Style in 1992, and Todd/Rusty Masse formed the Gollypops with fill-in Sexual Milkshake bassist and ex-Blast Off Country Style member Phil Sweeney.
