Their music is an indefinable (but still very distinctive) mixture of drum 'n' bass, trip hop, jazz and alien-like noises, all brought together by Róisín's powerful voice and some quite seriously fucked up lyrics. Their music definitely has a dark edge, but not without humour. And at times it makes you (almost) piss your pants in fear.
Mark worked in the music industry long before he co-created Moloko. He produced Krush's House Arrest and remixed music by Eric B and Rakim. He'd also worked with local Sheffield funk bands Chakk and Cloud 9. Róisín went to art school for a while but got bored and dropped out.
The name Moloko is taken from Anthony Burgess' novel A Clockwork Orange, in which its literal meaning (in Russian) is "milk". Its implicit meaning, however, has more to do with drugs than dairy products, and Róisín admits the former definitely plays a part in their music (well, duh...)
