Milkteeth were a young musical duo who started performing music while studying at the Hereford College of Art and Design.
The band officially formed when friends Annie Macrae and Leila Terrett started making music back in February 2005, although they had been jamming for a year before their first gig.
Both band members played an equal part - whether that would be songwriting, singing, producing the harmonies, playing guitars or drums.
Two of their songs were included in the Building Bands CD Project 2005, funded by the Music Pool in Hereford.
Their influences included The Dresden Dolls, Hole, Pixies, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Bright Eyes, L7, The White Stripes, Polar Bear and Gogol Bordello.
Their music highlight was playing in the acoustic tent at the Sheep Music Festival in Presteigne.
Sadly in the summer of 2006, Leila passed away having suffered glandular fever and pneumonia.
Tributes on their MySpace site include: "She was such a talent, and I will always remember the first time I saw you guys, you were the best thing to come out of Hereford in a while. You will be sorely missed, let the music live on."
You can listen to all the latest music from across the two counties on the Friday Session, every week from 7pm on BBC Hereford & Worcester or on demand at a time that suits you.
