Product Notes

Revolution. Ask anyone within four beats of South Jersey about Spilled Milk and what they describe will sound like a revolution. In 1998, Teague Alexy and Angelo DeRosa spent the winter in Ocean Beach, San Diego working on what would become Jive Ass Turkey. Using their sizeable hip-hop skills honed in their teenage years in several South Jersey rap crews, a growing confidence in their musicianship, a couple guitars, a cheap keyboard, a couple cheap mics and an old beat up four track they went to work. Spilled Milk had no interest bringing in the mostly jamband or grunge influenced musicians of the day to compensate for their lack of equipment. Instead they banged on walls, pots and pans and phonebooks to create the sounds they were looking for. They also invited Ian Alexy who was on his winter break from Berklee College of Music. Ian's avant-garde jazz playing and high level of musicianship proved to be a key ingredient. There was never an album like Jive Ass Turkey before 1998 and they will never be another like it. Part one of the revolution - complete. A few months later, they recruited drummer BJ Capelli, bassist Rich Nehmad and old rhyming partner and trumpet player Michael Carter to take on the big business cover band scene of the South Jersey Shore. After being turned down repeatedly and having dozens of friends plead with the bar owner, Spilled Milk was granted their first show at The Pearl in Somers Point. No payment. No free drinks. 75 people came. The word spread. Two weeks later they were granted a return gig. No payment, free drinks. 150 people came. Across the street the biggest venue in town took notice though an original band had never played Brownie's before. Three weeks later, due to a cancellation, they let Spilled Milk play. Over 300 people came. Over the next nine months Spilled Milk opened for Smashmouth in front of 3000 people at The Atlantic City Baseball Stadium, rocked the Philadelphia Music Conference and New York's famous CBGB's and continually broke attendance and bar sales records in and around their hometown of Somers Point, New Jersey. Part two of the revolution - complete. "4 STARS"....SLAMM Magazine (San Diego)
