Encore Un Effort!

Indie Pop Record Store Day 2015 Release 180 gram Heavyweight Yellow Vinyl LP and MP3 Milky Wimpshake return with a brand new album of melodic punk indiepop splattered with Pete Dale's wry lyrics and simple direct guitar riffs The album features several duets with Sophie Evans who sings on over half the songs adding both a sweetness and a sassyness to their sound These duets show different sides to relationships from shyness to bickering and from lust to indifference The album also sees a return to 'political' as opposed to purely romantic concerns on songs like 'Le Revolution Politique' Pete's first ever song written in French calling for political revolution 'Coming Soon' a hymn to the messianic arrival of anarchosocialist revolution proposing that there can be no war but the class war and the cover of Onsind featuring members of Martha's 'Heterosexuality is a Construct' The album title 'Encore Un Effort' is an old Marxist slogan popular in France and used by for example Situationist Rene Vienet in his 1977 film Chinois Encore Un Effort Pour Etre Revolutionnaires One More Effort Chinese If You Want to be Revolutionaries To some extent though the 'encore' is Milky Wimpshake's who would have thought they would still be going some twenty odd years since the first tape and 7 singles This LP is an added extra for the diehards who've stuck with the band or continuing with our french a port manteaux for those who have never come across the band before Milky Wimpshake were formed by Pete in 1993 with Christine Rowe joining the band on bass in early 1994 A number of drummers have appeared over the course of half a dozen LPs but the latest drummer Mike Walsh will hopefully be a permanent addition The newest member of the band Sophie Evans wasn't even born when the band played their first gig but she is not the only one who has grown up coming to Milky Wimpshake shows the band has a small but enthusiastic cult following
