“Bringing Our Modern Working Class Rock to the Ears of Music Lovers Everywhere.” Millsyeck (mill-sy-eck) are a four piece Blues Driven Rock band hailing from Dundee, Scotland. Formed in early 2009, after frontman Alex Mills working under the stage name of Millsyeck, advertised for band members.
Already working with drummer Gary Mckay, the Ad was answered by Bassist Steven ‘Caveman’ Alexander and Guitarist Frank Duncan. The band began rehearsing Alex’s back catalogue of material and soon hit the ground running with their first gig supporting Glasgow based Rockers ‘Logan’ at Dundee’s premier music venue, Fat Sam’s Live.
After a summer of gigs including a string of open air venues around Dundee the band parted ways with Gary and brought in ex-Goodnights drummer, Jamie Corstorphine. The band progressed with Jamie onboard recording their EP Once Clean, Twice Dirty and played a demanding schedule throughout the summer of 2010.
The highlights included playing ‘Tattoo Jam’ at Doncaster Racecourse, Britains largest tattoo convention and ‘Montrose Music Festival’ seeing the band winning over fans and critics alike. In September 2010, the band went through it’s final line up change with Jamie departing – The band announced Chris Melvin, a college friend of Frank Duncan’s as Millsyeck’s newest member.
A good vibe came over the band after playing Chris’s first official gig as the band’s Alter Ego ‘Sexxx Panther’ and continued when playing a series of gigs raising a substantial amount of cash for Cancer Research UK. 2011, started on the front foot with the band playing a storming set at Dexter’s Bar, Dundee, followed by the confirmation of a tour with The Scottish Rock Collective.
