Milk ‘N’ Cookies - Milk 'N' Cookies

Milk ‘N’ Cookies
File between Sparks and Roxy Music. Our first spin
off from the Glitterbest compilation is a classic of that immediate pre
punk era where New York art rockers sneered their way through 3 minute
pop songs.The band were at the time, 1975/6, often found to be
playing at Max's Kansas City usually supporting either the Ramones or
Talking Heads. Both groups were signed to Sire and the Milk n Cookies
were set to follow. However previously they had recorded an album with
Muff Winwood at Island, having been taken there by manager John Hewlett,
who also looked after Sparks. Island released a single then sat on the
album, in 1974, and the band returned to New York to join the emerging
scene there, when in 1976 Island suddenly decided to release after all.
Timing all wrong, and with no real backing from the label, the LP died
and so did the bands prospective deal with Sire, thus the band
collapsed. Bassist Sal Maida joined Sparks, having previously played
with Roxy Music, guitarist and principle songwriter Ian North went solo.
As for the singer Justin Strauss.…oh he married Hollywood actress
Kathleen Turner!So resurrected now following growing interest in
this Sparks related combo, we have added the single to the LP, plus the
album out takes and Sire/Warner Bros demos. Put together in cooperation
with the band the package comes with an essay by noted New York Dolls
biographer Nina Antonia, and photos from the bands own archive.
