The Dead Milkmen is a satirical punk band formed in 1983 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The band initially consisted of Joe Genaro ("Joe Jack Talcum" – guitar, vocals), Dave Schulthise ("Dave Blood" – bass), Dean Sabatino ("Dean Clean" – drums), and Rodney Linderman ("Rodney Anonymous" – vocals, keyboards).[1]
The band plays jangly, driving punk rock with irreverent, often childish and occasionally topical humor delivered via heavy Philadelphia accents.[2] They recorded eight studio albums, one live record, and several EPs and self-released cassettes in their initial career before disbanding in 1995.
In 2008, after a small handful of reunion shows during their 13 years of inactivity, the group decided to continue performing and working on new material with new bassist Dan Stevens replacing the deceased Schulthise.
