The Return Of Friday Night Is Rockabilly Night 80

Bagging Area’s rockabilly revival continues, 32 years after the NME covered a more widespread one. Tonight Ronnie Cook and The Gaylads with their shlocky, after dark Goo Goo Muck, destined to be covered by The Cramps many years later. Pint anyone?

Singing Loins

For some reason, in the early 1900s this deep sea diver appeared at Winchester Cathedral. Those deep sea diving suits are both very cool  and very terrifying. Must have been nerve wracking walking along the sea bed in lead boots and huge helmet with an air pipe attached. The cover of the new Singing Loins lp- Here On Earth- has a deep sea diver painted by Billy Childish. Medway folkers The Singing Loins are into their third decade as a band. This is the video for one of the songs off the album, Monsters Ashore, and I rather like it…

Billy Childish, relatively quiet of late, has suddenly released three Spartan Dreggs albums on the same day. You can get them at Damaged Goods. A few years ago Billy and the Singing Loins recorded an excellent album in a kitchen. This is one is one of Billy’s standards redone Singing Loins style.
