There are some great one-man bands out there, like King Automatic and Ty Segal.

But this guy easily beats them all.

Billy Childish

Billy Childish and the Musicians and the British Empire are playing at the infamous Dirty Water Club in Tufnell Park tonight. I think it’ll be my fifth time to see Wild Billy.

‘I’ve never heard of Billy Childish’, I hear you say. Really? You’ve missed out.

He’s a poet, painter and writer, but most of all, musician. He’s been in loads of bands. I think the most well known are The Milkshakes, The Mighty Ceasars, Thee Headcoates and The Buff Medways and he’s released over 100 albums.

If you, as I do, have a soft spot for 60s garage, 70s punk and a catchy chorus, then go out and buy a couple of Buff Medways or Thee Headcoates albums as soon as you can.

And did I say? He’s got a great moustache.
