听的Moloko的第一张专辑就是《Statues》，可能也是感觉最为强烈的。在发表了三张成功的专辑之后，他们在音乐上进行了一次转变，首先体现在专辑曲目上——由从前的近20首骤减到10首，使得整张专辑在音乐结构上紧凑、严谨了许多。这是一张充满情绪张力的专辑（部分原因来自于乐队两人恋人关系的终结），有些老乐迷不适应这种变化，不过在我看来这是一张接近完美的专辑——第一首‘Familiar Feeling’就将你带入一片难以挣脱的情绪风暴中，这里几乎每首歌能够成为单曲，它体现了矛盾的美感，即流行动感，充满能量与野心（‘Cannot Contain This’、‘Forever More’、‘I Want You’）；同时标题曲‘Statues’和结尾曲‘Over and Over’又给它增加了一些压抑的沉重感，这两首歌中也加入了真实的钢琴和管弦乐，使得情感上的表达更加真实动人。

这是Roisin Murphy（来自都柏林），Mark Brydon由于不怎么上照，通常难得一见~
The Sheffield duo Moloko is the fruit of Irish-born Roisin Murphy's bid to pick up Mark Brydon at a 1994 do with the famous lines, 'Do you like my tight sweater? See how it fits my body.' Mark heard a melody in that and soon afterwards he and Roisin went to a studio to record an album.
Mark Brydon (Sunderland) worked in the music industry long before Moloko was born. He produced Krush's House Arrest and remixed music by Eric B & Rakim. Roisin Murphy (Wicklow, Ireland) was a newcomer to the music business.
The band's name is borrowed from Anthony Burgess' classic novel 'A 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. In 1996 Moloko recorded the next single 'Fun For Me'and toured Europe and the US.
The band's second full-length album, titled 'I Am Not A Doctor' was released in 1998. In 1999 the single 'Sing It Back' (Boris Dlugosch mix) became a silver disc in England. The next year the first single from the new album 'Things To Make And Do' was released. The song 'The Time Is Now' became one of the most played singles in Europe.
Since spring 2000 Moloko were touring Europe as a real band together with Paul Slowley (drums), Eddie Stevens (keyboard) and Dave Cook from Bambino Casino (guitar).
