At this point over 30 collections of poetry had already been published all over the world.
This release was limited to 1000 copies which are now long since sold out.
One of our favourite early releases and a rather overlooked classic album, a one off collaboration between Billy Childish and legendary Medway folkies The Singing Loins’
This was recorded in 1993 when Billy was in Thee Headcoats and The Singing Loins were in their first incarnation
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.
