Milk TV is a punk / pop / no wave trio started in Brussels late 2017 by Frenchman Matthieu Peyraud already involved as a bass player in the local oriental kraut sextet Phoenician Drive. It is the continuation of a previous trio Frances’ Foes, based in Montréal that he had to abort to migrate back to Europe. Now back on the tracks full on as lead singer and bassist he is supported by Martin Rault (Phoenician Drive) on the drums, Gaetan Gauthier on guitar (first Ep and Lp of Milk Tv) replaced by Casper De Geus (O›Grady, Moar, Brorlab), the new guitarist of the band.
The power trio feeds on playground nostalgia, cheep TV programs and a good dose of post-Reagan cynicism to bring some jerky and raucous pieces of rock music that feel like Devo, Wire, Sonic Youth & Deerhoof ain›t standing too far in the rear mirror. And you›re driving your old cousin›s shitty Honda Civic, but you wish it were a DeLorean flying under the milky-way.
