Press Release :
Since his last release on Tru Thoughts in 2006 Freddie Cruger,  has been busy travelling the world as a DJ and releasing music on his own label, Homegrown Records - one of these releases was the debut, and now extremely rare, Wildcookie 12". The "Drugs EP" featured "Heroine" and received support from Gilles Peterson on BBC Radio 1. Wildcookie is not a one man band though; Freddie's ultra-crisp production skills and sophisticated synthline melodies are backed with the pitch perfect vocals of Anthony Mills.

Anthony Mills is no stranger to the world of music.  In 12 short years he has toured extensively with Harry Belafonte's All-Star Band, recorded with Krs-One, Amy Winehouse, Leela James, Maxi Priest, Snow, Sizzla, Dead Prez, Doc (Esthero), Sly Dunbar, Chinna Smith and Grace Bumbry.  Mills has written over 1000 songs in this time and recorded well over 100 studio and live albums, providing lead vocals for two other duos - Super Viral Brothers (Pope/Universal) and XXLARGEMILLS.

In the last five years Mills has lived in Stockholm, graciously penetrating Sweden's music and art scene including hooking up with Freddie Cruger, a native of the Swedish capital. Freddie remembers, "I met Anthony at this live venue called Lydmar in 2006 when he was in Stockholm performing as a background singer for Leela James. I got introduced to him as the man to work with." Then in 2009 they started making tracks. "The way we get the music done is basically that we get in to the 'zone', I start playing beats and Anthony starts writing. He is amazing at finding melodies on the spot and also quick with lyrics so sometimes we lay down 3 or 4 tracks a day. The songs on the album were mostly done on the first take and that's how we like to work. Anthony is a kind of person that I feel I can play any type of styles to 'cause I never know what he is going to do."

Their upcoming 'Heroine' single, is out as a free download from http://wildcookie.bandcamp.com/ on 24th January 2011, when we will also be streaming 3 other tracks from their debut album, Cookie Dough.

The debut album, 'Cookie Dough', is out on 21st February.
