SWEET JUICE are a Father and Son music duo…
A bit like Steptoe and Son if their rag and bone yard was full of old, half broken musical equipment…
Malcolm Doherty (GoKart Mozart, Great Electric) - Drums, guitar, piano.
Calum McQ (A Lifetime with Mercury, Gabi Garbutt) - Bass, Programming, synths.
Trapped in their flat in Camberwell during lockdown the duo overcame boredom by jamming and fiddling around and tunes began to formulate. Inspired by a mutual love of early Talking Heads, Television, Krafwerk, Eno and Can, the pair embarked on a trip of pure creative freedom, conceived with no agenda and realised with the very limited equipment at their disposal - this self titled instrumental album is the result.
Here, for the nerds, is what they used to make it…
