Biography

Anthony Joseph “Joe” Genaro (born October 15, 1962 in Wagontown, Pennsylvania) is an American musician and songwriter, best known as the former guitarist and co-lead vocalist for the punk rock group the Dead Milkmen. Currently residing in Philadelphia, Genaro has performed with a number of punk and indie rock groups, most recently including The Low Budgets, and is also a solo artist. He is gay and of Italian heritage. Genaro founded The Dead Milkmen in 1983, initially establishing the group as a bedroom-based home-recording project with a mythological back-story prior to their evolution into a traditional four-piece band shortly thereafter. The members of the group regularly employed pseudonyms, and Genaro most frequently called himself “Joe Jack Talcum” (stemming from the character of Jack Talcum that Genaro had imagined as the leader of the band in their mythology) in the context of the group, although he also used the names “Butterfly Fairweather” and “Jasper Thread” on certain records.
