Wild Billy Childish is back with his new band ‘The Musicians Of The British Empire’ featuring fellow Buffer Wolf Howard on drums and Buffet Nurse Julie on bass.
Their debut 7" will be released on DG in November, it's called 'Punk Rock At The British Legion Hall' and is backed with 'Joe Strummers Grave' - Cat Damgood 276
Every 5 years or so Billy Childish is sited by the current top band as the embodiment of rock ‘n’ roll integrity, and every 5 years or so Billy splits his group up and starts again from scratch. With his latest combo, The Musicians of the British Empire, Billy carries on his tradition of home made punk and rhythm and blues. Singing odes to Joe Strummer and nodding to The Who, whilst showing the next generation what a real rock ’n’ roll group sounds like.
They play their first official gig at the Dirty Water Club in London on the 17th of November 2006, www.dirtywaterclub.co.uk
