The Vermin Poets 'Spartan Dreg'

Billy Childish has another new band, The Vermin Poets, with Billy writing the songs, playing guitar and doing backing vox, his wife Juju on bass, MBE's drummer Wolf Howard, and Neil Palmer from Fire Department on vocals and lyre (!). This one is of a poetical bent but with super-sharp mid-60s mod-op-art music. If you like Childish you'll love this. He's had a run of really good albums over the last few years, has a exhibition of paintings on in London, and was on Radio 4 this week. If you don't like him, you should give it a go. Steady the buffs.

Billy is modelling a First World War general issue British army shirt RB620. Just so you know.
