lucrate milk


Lucrate Milk - La Rage Qui Vit

Lucrate Milk are new to me but it reminds me of some no wave stuff like Y Pants and Mika Miko and also the more punk less slick Essential Logic. I couldn't find much info but I think this is a collection of their output from 1979-1983.

Lucrate Milk - No Kods
Lucrate Milk - Lustiges Tierquartett

ALSO a Mika Miko jam
