WELCOME TO THE RETRO-FUTURE...
ten years ago the MiLkBabY was born twice.
the first time when Barry Bennett played
Jason Kunesh some music that he had written
for a play. He said that it sounded like being
chased by one of those goddamn milkbabies; an
obscure reference to a comic book.
the birth was complete about a month later in
a dingy apartment on Belmont when Barry and
David Lee Smith sat huddled together behind
some td-7 drum pads with a headphone splitter
making SOUNDS... super hero sounds, shimmery
scary sounds, yummy sounds, sounds to make
you WONDER... wonder, could a BAND sound like
then along came Tracee; and to borrow from
Belew, it was three of a perfect pair indeed.
three albums, life in a van, and SOUNDS...
in 2001, David and Tracee moved across the
ocean. Barry was alone for a while, but then he
heard these SOUNDS ... they were coming from
DARREN. could he be a BabY, too? a duo was born.
an album, life in the van, and SOUNDS. Then THE
TWO noticed something special about Darren's
girlfriend SOPHIE. such a sparkle, such energy,
and the SOUNDS that she makes... under our noses
the whole time...three of a perfect pair, AGAIN.
glorious... i think that brings us up to date...
until april 2008, when MiLkBabY added SIGHTS to their SOUNDS.
