MILKMAN JACK – Milkman Jack is a four piece indie rock band originally from Cambridge, now situated in London. Their songs combine pop style melodies with raw and grunge inspired arrangements. The band draws most influence from post punk music and alternative bands from the 90s, to create a modern indie sound. The energetic live set contains tracks with lyrics about addiction, loneliness and teenage heartbreak. The songs encapsulate the chaos and uncertainty of adolescence. So far Milkman Jack has released the Fortune Cookies EP. Milkman Jack is now working on newer songs and are set to play a number of shows in London this year and around the UK before recording more material.
CANDIDE – Candide is a rocket ship from Mars, Candide is the Roswell incident and the French Revolution. Candide is death or glory. Candide is war, Candide is a fizzy Sherbert flying saucer, exploding into this world’s pampered flowers. Candide is Golden Copulations, a cry to the gods of yore, a lighthouse in a sea of inequity, an electric church. If Hendrix, Supergrass, and Green Day had a baby, it would be ugly, but it would come out of mother music screaming and kicking. Candide is kicking and screaming.
The standard that has fallen will rise again, the embers linger, and we shall breathe unto them new infernal life; the glorious past will be reborn. England, The Universe we are their vessel, this is the time. Blind optimism is in, Candide is for the best of all possible worlds, Cultivate your garden with us now.
