Milburn were a four-piece outfit from the city of Sheffield, Yorkshire, England. The band consisted of Joe Carnall (lead vocals/bass), Louis Carnall (vocals/rhythm guitar), Tom Rowley (lead guitar) and Joe Green (drummer).
They produced ear-grabbing riffs and essential Melodies, underpinned by the raw tones of the mod-punk era, which epitomises the youthfulness and abundant potential of the band. Milburn's sound has most recently been described as the aggressive riffs of the Jam, with a touch of ska mixed with the hooks and sound of modern contemporaries such as the Libertines and Razorlight.
Milburn eventually announced they would split on March 28, 2008, with the band playing their final gig at Sheffield's Carling Academy on May 24, 2008.
3 of the 4 members who were part of Milburn went on to try new things in music and created their own bands. Joe Green and Tom Rowley created The Backhanded Compliments while Joe Carnall created The Book Club. You can see videos below.
Here are the old Milburn demo downloads we've had on the site for all those years, completely unorganised.

Louis Carnall seems to have disappeared off the face of the planet, but it's most likely he got a job outside music.
