Harvey Milk are an experimental rock band that formed in Athens, Georgia in the early 1990s. The band, despiteplaying numerous live shows, releasing a slew of 7" singles and three full length albums, never received muchattention outside of their local fanbase. Even when they were together, Harvey Milk releases were notoriously hardto find. It was not until years after the band's demise that their singles, as well as all three full length albums, sawre-release through various labels, most notably Relapse Records.

While Harvey Milk invariably draws comparisons to the Melvins, due to their penchant for slow, heavy riffs, theband has touched upon such artists as ZZ Top, Led Zeppelin and Leonard Cohen as influences in their music.They even went so far as to perform a live show consisting of nothing but Hank Williams covers. Recently theband has reformed and recorded a new album, Special Wishes.

They are named after Harvey Milk, San Francisco, California's first openly gay city supervisor, who was murderedin 1978.
