ARMITAGE SHANKS | BILLY CHILDISH

DO YOU WANT SOME FUCKIN’ SHIRTS OFF OR FUCKING WHAT!DG23-Cover-B

It’s Armitage Shanks first recordings!

We’d seen the Shanks supporting Thee Headcoats at the St Johns Tavern a few times so a single was inevitable, this turned out to be one of those classic debuts.DG23-flyer

Billy Childish joined the lads for a four track EP, ‘Shirts off’ is a reworking of the Buzzcocks standard ‘Times Up’, ‘Kray Twins’ is a cover of the Pop Rivets track and ‘Icon Schmicon’ and ‘Bernard Manning’ were both originals.

Just a brilliant EP.

I think this EP became the template for the Shanks 20 odd years of terror!DG23-GigFlyer DG23-Label ADG23-Label B
