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 was a co-release with the final incarnation of Billy’s Hangman Records, this label was Hangman’s Daughter, the LP on Hangmans Daughter (Cat No: SCRAG1UP) the CD on Damaged Goods (Cat No: DAMGOODCD22)
The LP had a b/w cover, CD was colour.
The Singing Loins formed in late 1990, a two piece band playing “Authentic raw folk from the Medway Delta”.
They are Chris Broderick on Vocals / Stick and Chris ‘Arfur’ Allen on Guitar. They had recorded two classic albums before this both of which were released on Billy’s own Hangman records.
The album features a few Childish classics reworked including ‘You Make Me Die’ and ‘Every Bit Of Me’ as well as 4 tracks written by Billy & The Loins especially for this album.
