Milk Dick is an avant-punk trio that formed in 2012 when childhood friends Michael Delaney and Megan Lazaros decided to start a band as a way to sublimate their perversion. Brian Indig joined the group after being put in touch with Mike through a mysterious and seductive mutual acquaintance.
Romantic Superstore is the fifth installment of the Infinity Cat Cassette Series, curated by Casey Weissbuch of equally repugnantly-named Diarrhea Planet. The album covers everything from the trials and tribulations of love and sexually transmitted diseases (”Bugs”) to New York’s vibrant party scene and less-than-vibrant puking-in-the-subway scene (”Last Real Party”). Milk Dick get half of their sonic quirks from Velvet Underground: the drum stylings reminiscent of Moe Tucker, the spoken word interludes, the “I’m Sticking With You” pop-doppleganger “Never Let On”. The rest come from punk heroes: The Clash’s vocal delays, the Cramps’ yelps, the Ramones’ fast and sloppy non-stop pop. Milk Dick pays homage in equal amounts of high fives (or hang tens) to The Crablets and The Beach Boys, but with their own hilarious twist.
