Wild Billy Childish is back with his new band ‘The Musicians Of The British Empire’ are about to release their debut album ‘Punk Rock At The British Legion Hall’
This is a limited edition 7” taken from the album with ‘Snack Crack’ on the A side and an exclusive B side ‘Elvis Presley Is Dead’ which tells the story of how Billy heard about Elvis being dead from Mark E Smith onstage at the Vortex club in London.
This 7” will be available on three colours (500 of each) Grey, Clear and Half Grey Half White.
Every 5 years or so Billy Childish is sited by the current top band as the embodiment of rock ‘n’ roll integrity, and every 5 years or so Billy splits his group up and starts again from scratch. With his latest combo, The Musicians of the British Empire, Billy carries on his tradition of home made punk and rhythm and blues. Singing odes to Joe Strummer and nodding to The Who, whilst showing the next generation what a real rock ’n’ roll group sounds like.
The Musicians Of The British Empire are: -
Wild Billy Childish – Vox / Guitar
Nurse Julie – Vox / Bass
Wolf Howard – Drums
