Band Biography

The Dead Milkmen were formed in 1983 for real, after existing for many years as a fake band created by Joe Jack Talcum. They were known for their hooks, though most of the band was rudimentary at best at their instruments. The lyrics were often humorous, either satirical or scatological, but typically hilarious. For a brief while, they were signed to Hollywood Records and encouraged to go into a less humorous direction with more vocals by Joe Jack Talcum, but after two albums, they were dropped and returned to Restless. In 2004, Dave Blood committed suicide, and the band got back together for one night to raise money for one of Dave Blood's favorite charities. The other Milkmen have all formed other bands now.
