Moloko were an Irish/English electronic/pop duo consisting of Róisín Murphy from Wicklow, Ireland and Mark Brydon, from Sunderland, England.

The band’s name originates from the Nadsat slang in the novel A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess, in which it means “milk” (from the Russian word for milk, молоко), actually the name of a milk drink Alex and his “droogs” consume mixed with amphetamines. (Fellow electronic Sheffield band Heaven 17 had also taken their name from the novella when they formed in 1980).
History of band
Murphy was born in Arklow, Ireland, and had no prior professional experience as a singer. Brydon already had an extensive CV within the dance music community as a remixer and member of pop/house acts House Arrest and Cloud 9. They met at a party in Sheffield, England, when Murphy approached Brydon using the chat-up line, “Do you like my tight sweater? See how it fits my body!” This line would later become the title of their debut album, recorded while the pair were dating. The first two albums Do You Like My Tight Sweater? and I Am Not a Doctor gained notice in the underground dance scene. The band broke into the mainstream when “Sing It Back”, an album track from I Am Not A Doctor, was remixed by house music producer Boris Dlugosch. The track was a massive hit in Ibiza, and this remixed version broke into the top-five in both the Irish Singles Charts, and the UK singles chart in 1999, and also, helped by a psychedelic video featuring Murphy in a very short metallic “flapper” dress and cap. “Sing It Back” was eventually featured on 110 music compilations.
