Moloko was born. He was the founder of the Fon Studios in
Sheffield. He also produced Krush's House Arrest and remixed

The band's name is borrowed from Anthony Burgess' classic
novel 'The Clockwork Orange', in which it means either 'milk'
or 'method of narcotic indigestion'.
In 1995 the band recorded their first single titled 'Where
Is The What If The What Is In Why?'. The same year they came
out with their full-length debut named 'Do You Like My Tight
Sweater?'. The album was sold in over 250,0000 copies worldwide.
