This Weeks Featured Artist – The Milk Men

The Milk Men are a band made up from the cream of British R’n’B talent and pedigree.

Bringing together members of the legendary Pirates, and British Blues Award-nominated the Mustangs, The Milk Men have been tearing up venues and festivals all over the UK with their dynamic, white hot versions of classic blues tunes, alongside unforgettable foot-stomping originals.

With former Pirate Mike Roberts on drums, Lloyd Green (son of Pirate legend Mick Green) on bass guitar, husky blues singer Jamie Smy on vocals, the band is rounded off on guitar by Adam Norsworthy, singer and guitarist in the Mustangs.

The Milk Men’s sound has been called ‘ZZ/DC Feelgood” by some critics, who have lavished praise on the band’s dynamic live show and original songs. But the band draws its influences from all corners of the blues world, from early Rod Stewart , through classic Rolling Stones & Steely Dan, to the heavier blues leanings of ZZ Top and AC/DC.

In 2016 the band released its critically-acclaimed debut album FULL PHAT. Their brilliant second album GOLD TOP was released in March 2018. 

Both albums showcase the joint songwriting talents of best friends Norsworthy and Smy, who have grown up together since age 11, as well as the lithe, tight and punchy rhythm playing of Roberts and Green. Songs such as ‘Real Good Looking’, ‘Tambourine’ and ‘She Don’t Like Rock’n’Roll’ sit comfortably alongside barnstorming versions of ‘Dust My Broom and ‘Give Me Back My Wig’.

GOLD TOP features ‘This Is The Last Time’, a longlost song co-written by Lloyd Green and his father Mick Green. 

The band’s tight, catchy blend of original songs and classic covers has won them fans all over the UK and the band look set to grow from strength to strength with a new album and more live shows in 2018.
