Limited edition of 2000 BROWN vinyl 7″ Headcoat Lane was Billy and Bruce doing their Sherlock & Watson routine which they first did on the ‘My Dear Watson’ single, which came out on Estrus Records in that thereUSA. The b-side was Thee Headcoats doing a roaring version of Link Wray’s ‘Comanche’
Our first proper single with Thee Headcoatees, they asked us what tracks we would like so we said ‘Davey Crockett’ and ‘Young Blood’ please.
They went into the studio and two weeks later the DAT arrived.
We pressed in on marbled orange vinyl, there’s a few test pressings on black vinyl too.
Our first Christmas single, it was a 2 track Picture Disc 7″ featuring Thee Headcoatees covering the Sonics ‘Santa Claus’ with classic intro by Billy Childish.

Legendary single from Thee Headcoats, which, while being debuted at one of their regular monthly gigs at the St Johns Tavern in Archway, fell upon the ear of one Johnny Cigarettes who was reviewing the gig for the NME who then promptly walked out! The b-side was a cover of the Beatles song ‘Help!’ done […]

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.
