Wild Billy Childish And The Musicians Of The British Empire - He's making a tape
Today's song is by someone who's featured on this blog previously but not in this incarnation. Wild Billy Childish, according to wikipedia, was born Steven John Hamper on 1 December 1959 and is an English painter, author, poet, photographer, film maker, singer and guitarist. With all those irons in the fire you wouldn't think he'd have much time for music but he's one of the most prolific artists around. Just a few of the acts he's been involved with include Thee Milkshakes, Thee Mighty Caesars, Thee Headcoats, The Pop Rivets, The Buff Medways, The Spartan Dreggs, CTMF and the band who'll be featuring today, The Musicians Of The British Empire.
Released in 2008 on the Thatcher's Children album and featuring Childish's wife, Nurse Julie, on vocals, this is He's Making A Tape......
