Brand new album from Billy Childish’s CTMF!
‘the reason we didn’t sound like the Smiths is because we wanted to sound like this’
40 years ago, Billy Childish, then a 16 year old working in Chatham dockyard formed a group called ‘the Chatham Forts’, and started a journey through punk rock from 1977 to now. Along the way this painter/ poet has released over 140 independent LPs. (SQ 1 is something like his 150th – no one knows for sure.)
New 4 track EP from Wild Billy Chyldish & CTMF which precedes their forthcoming 4th album.
‘A Glimpse Of Another Time’ is a song about set seen based round Slim Chance’s Club at the Wild Western Rooms in the 1990’s (The club was out the back of the St John’s Tavern in Archway, North London) The club later moved down the road to the boston arms. Billy’s group Thee Headcoats used to play a regular monthly stint, which explains the EP photo from 1991 of Billy fronting Thee Headcoats with Bruce and Johnny
