WILD BILLY CHILDISH & CTMF on Friday 11th October 2019
Wild Billy Childish & CTMF are back with their sixth album in 7 years. ‘LAST PUNK STANDING follows the critically acclaimed ‘Brand New Cage’ album from 2017. It features 14 new tracks with 11 written by Billy Childish songs along with three written and sung by the band’s bassist Nurse Julie.
William Charlie Hamper, aka Billy Childish, has recorded over 125 LPs during his 37 year career. He is an internationally recognised painter, who was a great influence on the YBAs. He has also published 5 novels & 40 plus collections of poetry.
Never veering far from the path of homemade punk rock, blues and rock ‘n’ roll, Childish is the epitome of the homemade ethic, never signing to a label or using a producer.
Childish’s bands have been championed by a succession of fashionable artists: Kurt Cobain, Beck, Jack White (who appeared on TOTP with Billy’s name scrawled on his forearm in homage), and even Kylie Minogue who named an LP after one of Billy’s poetry collections.
Line-up:Wild Billy Childish & CTMF plus support from: The Shadracks, The Gorgons, White Heat, The Grand Merci.
