Formed in New York, USA, in 1974, Milk And Cookies initially comprised Justin Strauss (vocals), Ian North (keyboards) Sal Maida (bass) and Mike Ruiz (drums). A power pop band with a quirky sense of humour, their sole album inspired comparisons to Sparks. Soon after its release Maida quit to join Venus And The Razorblades, and Jim Gregory, and then Jay Dee Weiss, replaced him in Milk And Cookies. North soon left, too, to form the punk-inspired Neo and Ian North’s Radio, while Weiss then became a founding member of the Knickers with James Destri (who later was a member of Blondie). Strauss and Ruiz managed to keep their band going until 1977.
