Miloco have a proud history of bringing fantastic new artists through the ranks and
into the glamorous world of screaming fans and camera-snapping journos, MTV Cribs appearances
and banswara white
mantle-pieces glistening with awards of gold, frankincense and myrrh; IT'S THE WHOLE PACKAGE, PEOPLE!!
But they all have to start from somewhere, so this page is devoted to the next generation of
world-beating Milocees. Here's a glimpse of who might well be lining the walls of the
Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame in times to come...
This London 5-piece were the ever-so lucky ones to Christen the newly-revamped Pool with their
musical charms in August 2008, when we cut the ribbons on the studio. Their post-session Twitter posts described the sound of the room
as "HUGE!" Find out more about this exciting new bunch... them:youth
"Dedicated to elevating electronic dance fans towards a higher musical space", is what the carefully named
Aeroplane use as their mission statement. This Belgian duo are comprised of Stephen Fasano and Vito Deluca,
and they are passionate, dedicated and full of electro-pop ideas. Aeroplane
The newest rollers from South Yorkshire go by the name of Exit Calm. Their rather awesome blasts of pyschedelic indie
will be available for all to savour come summer, when their debut album, recently tracked at Miloco's Square studio, is transformed
into whichever purchasable formats one fancies to purchase! Exit Calm
Mike, Jonathan, Jeremy and Alex might sound like four day-to-day lads from Manchester, but the music they are starting to create a stir around
is anything but. In their own words, they make tunes which are "good 'n' fresh", and we won't deny that. Find out more about the band known
as Everything Everything
Another great young band, means another set of both serious and silly questions. Next on the bill is Penfold Gate,
a 4-piece from Shepshed in the heart of the East Midlands of Merry Old England, where it seems
up-coming indie stars like their ale real, and their women peasants. Meet Penfold Gate
Suzerain pick their fruits from such beautiful trees as Depeche Mode and The Cure, so it was a match made in heaven
when they rolled up to Miloco's Pool, Garden and Yard with producer Steve Lyon, whose credits span the aforementioned plus many more great acts.
Here's a band to look out for: great tunes, great wit, great drawings! Suzerain!
Just as we waved goodbye to one brilliant Manchester debutant in Kid British, (until another time), one more turned up, and
we were ever so glad for it. Delphic are a band with guitars, but an imagination which stretches back to the most
exciting period of their hometown's musical heritage. Find out a little more... Delphic
Acquaint yourselves with the new sound of Manchester, the sprightly vocal
quartet of Kid British who are pushing the bar with their endearing mixture of dub, ska and indie rock.
Locked away in the studio with producers Steve Dub and Segs over the last couple of months, we of course grabbed them
for a chin-wag. Meet Our Kid!!
Dark Room Notes
Dark Room Notes hail from Dublin, but have momentarily swapped capitals
to bring their fresh strand of electro-rock to London, with a wardrobe of outfits, bags of
creativity, and the odd copy of Enya's 'Orinoco Flow', the classic Miloco-made tune
with which we have found some friends to share passionately! Dark Room Notes
Lets take a moment for Magistrates, a group of dashing young Essex lads who have
embarked on a mission to introduce the planet to their fantastic indie music, "for the
mind, feet, and hips". So get your dancing shoes and thinking caps on, this band
have clearly got everyone in their sights. Milc introduces Magistrates
Jay Jay Pistolet
Meet Jay Jay - the fledgling folkie from London who's nifty guitar-panache
and earth-warming vocals are causing a real stir on the contemproary undergound nu-folk scene.
Read on to hear his cut-to-the-point replies to a selection of cut-to-the-point queries
including details on an intriguing affiliation with a Will Smith classic. JJP
In Case Of Fire
Jump on board this chrome-plated wonder of a modern-day rock
engine! It's been steaming through the heavyweight live circuit in quick pursuit of
QOTSA, and has now taken retreat in the depot of Miloco's Pool, to be polished
exquisitely by Mr Gil Norton. Get your tickets for the ICOF Express!
The King Blues
Acquaint yourselves with London's most exciting ska-punk act. A six-piece force, The King Blues have already graced some of the most famous stages
in the country, and have also taken to the odd-record brake, especially records
held by Status Quo!
Ro-'King' all over the world!!
Step through this virtual door and you'll enter the Beatle newspaper cutout fanatics
that are The Rascals. You'll have to now just to make any sense out of the previous sentence,
but should anyway to acquaint yourself with one of the UK's best young bands...
Chatham's finest 4-piece combine their chirpy charm with some pretty awesome ska-punk, reflecting on mates, girls,
nights out on the razz... oooohhh those loveable rogues!!! Put your hands together for the
Inspired by Blur, approved by Kaiser Chiefs, snubbed by Tommy Schitt and the Punishment Fuckers. What a bubble burster!!
They came to The Yard in the summer of 2007. Milc heard and pounced!! Meet Ripchord
Gillian Glover is multi-influential. Of course her brilliant bluesy-folk-rock says it all, but her ideas to
send her ashes up in a firework? Now that is a dead-cert trendsetter. The Beatroot singer steps away from
the band life, and goes it alone (with a little help from her friends).
Craig Johnston is an intelligent chap. He has particular knowledge on the primal instincts of giant monkeys.
He is also a singer-songwriter, and one to look out for, without fail. Oh yes, he does a great Jack Nicholson
Fear Of Flying
Roll up roll up for a little bit of insider information on the-band-who-are-exceedingly-unlikely-to-tour-beyond-
western-europe-unless-some-cunning-promoter-drugs-their-milk-in-a-devious-homage-to-The-A-Team. The facts are
revealed here: Fear of Flying
Crash Car Burn
CrashCarBurn are from South Africa. CCB were in The Garden and Neve VR Room. CCB make good loud music.
CCB utilised the considerable talents of our own Mr Matt Hyde.

He might be unsigned and named after too-tight 80's trousers but don't let that count against him.
He's on a mission to bring his brand of indie folk rock gubbins to some ears near you, and he fully
intends to reclaim his cornflakes while he's at it... Tom.
The Bellarosa Connection
There are only three of them, they all sing and they all wear braces. They were the best thing at The Great Escape 06,
and have just recorded their debut material at Miloco, produced by Interface's Finn Eiles. Here's a little of what they've got to say for themselves...
They got together! They split up! They won a competition! They reformed! They promptly came down to Hoxton and
recorded a couple of lovely tracks! Click here for some more on the insect-loving
Pop-ridden Birmingham songsmiths reveal all about their self-funded Gavin Monaghan audio adventures. If you
were to click on the following link you'd see that we speak no lies: Deluka.
Queasy? Nauseous? Honky? Probably at some point, hopefully not too often and, yes, he is. He was also in The Toyshop back in the
days of still-wrapped presents and unfallen pine needles. Meet
Caravan Bargain? Mobile-home Discount? Double-Decker Shuffle? No. They weren't in the studio this month. However! These fellas were,
and this is what they had to say: Winnebago Deal profile.
The Bright Space
The Bright Space settled down in the plush sofas of virtual space, plumped their
wireless cushions, let their feet rest easy on a few USB-compatible poofs and subjected themselves to a few gentle MILC questions...
With songs awash with piano tinkles, cello caresses and more atmosphere than you shake a dry-ice strewn gothic film-noir
stick at, Charles is busy concocting a haven of melodic 'n' quirky tearjerk.
