The Musicians Of The British Empire

“Presents will be given!/They will be given/be given/be given/be given

This must be 3075th album by Billy C. and Christmass of 1979 must’ve been a cool one who knows, but this is great Christmas party slab with 12+1 Crash-Boom-Bang garage punk tunes typical for Billy Childish and The Musicians of the British Empire [with wife Julie and Wolf Howard]. Here you got real cool versions of The Sonics ”Santa Claus”, Tamrons “Wild-Man” [as Knick Knack, Paddy Wack], The Who (Pete Townsend’s Christmas), Link Wray, Christmas Lights, A Poundland Christmas, Mistletoe and other Xmass garage goodies. Dig!!!



”I want a brand new car, a twangy guitar
A cute little honey and lots of money
Santa Claus, won’t you tell me please?
Whatcha gonna put under my Christmas tree?”

“Daughter Told Her Mommy, I Wanna Be A Headcoat Girl”
“Formed in 1991, in Kent, as a backing band for Billy Childish’s band The Headcoats, The Headcoatees soon began releasing material of their own. Featuring Holly Golightly, Ludella Black, Kyra LaRubia and Debbie Green, the all girl outfit were active throughout the 90’s, industriously releasing a plethora of albums and singles.”
Straight from [whose else but] the Billy Childish kitchen came thee best girl garage punk band in the world. Surfadelic is pleased to finaly give a treat to Thee Headcoatees LP discography. From their ’91. debut slab “Girlsville” to the real cool ’99 singles collection “The Sisters Of Suave”, you gotta dance, dance, dance to the raw beat of these legendary ”Headcoat” PUNK GIRLS!!!
Their sexy & funny treat of classic Headcoats tunes as well as covers of Bo Diddley, Jimmy Reed, 60’s garage/freakbeat, Sonics, Shadows Of Knight, Troggs, Beatles, Ramones, Undertones, Plastic Bertrand and stuff gonna have you on yer knees.
With one of the most ridiculous 45’s titles ”We Got 7 Inches, But We Wanted Twelve!” and cover of Billy’s tune turned into all-out, full blown fellatio anthem ”Cum Into My Mouth” you know, they’re more than just another girl group. Welcome to the Girlsville!
“Treat Yourself With Respect Be A Headcoat Girl”

THEE HEADCOATS – Headcoatitude [1991]

This is their 6th LP of raw Garage/R&B/Punk with attitude. Here you gotta deal with more Kinks/Downliners Sect/Sonics 60’s influenced stuff with thouch of Childish ingeniosity. As you know, Wyld Billy suffers from chronic ultra overproduction but believe you me, this is one of THEE HEADCOATS better slabs next to “Heavens To Murgatroyd…” or “The Kids Are All Square”. Troubled Times, My Dear Watson, Everybody Lies, It’s Gonna Hurt You and other cool low-budget/lo-fi garage hits are all here, so you gotta have Headcoatitude. Dig!!!
