Dead Milkmen - Soul Rotation


Every so often people talk about a band who were before their time. Whether or not The Dead Milkmen were before their time is open to debate. Conspiracy theories and knowing about the UFO's and knowing people want to kill you for what you know were themes on their Soul Rotation album before the X-files series appeared on TV. The Dead Milkmen wondered if God had a kid brother and maybe, just maybe there's a heavenly choir that sings out of key before Joan Osborne wondered if God was one of us taking the bus.

Horns? Keyboards? What is this stuff? There's no way this is the same band that made punk albums like Beezlebubba and a Big Lizard in My Backyard. Well, yes it is. Deal with it or drink bleach.

They know.
