Editorial Reviews

This is a re-issue of the 1986 Media Burn compilation of demos from July 1981 and a couple of German live shows from April 1983, back on double LP for the first time in 24 years. THE MILKSHAKES were mainly Micky Hampshire (Git/Vox) Billy Childish (Git/Vox) Bruce Brand (Drums) Russ Wilkins (Bass. When his punk band, the Pop Rivets, broke up in 1980, Billy Childish formed a new group with Mickey Hampshire, a Pop Rivets roadie who had been performing in a group called Mickey and the Milkshakes. The two began writing songs together and released their first LP, Talkin' About, in 1981.
With Childish on guitar and vocals, Hampshire on guitar and vocals, Bruce Brand on drums, and Russ Wilkins (later replaced by John Agnew) on bass, the Milkshakes sound was a primitive blend of British beat groups, like the early Kinks at their toughest, and hard-rocking American guitar instrumentalists, like Link Wray. This sound came to be known as the ''Medway sound'' and Childish has been playing a variation on it throughout his whole career.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must for Billy Childish fans January 25, 2011
By Marky
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
A mix of "garage-recorded" and live tracks, this Milkshakes album is vintage Billy Childish. True to form, the songs here come complete with the jangly (and sometimes out-of-tune) guitars, amp noise, and unmistakable vocals that people either love or hate about Billy. This album will fit quite nicely with your collection of Thee Mighty Caesars, Thee Headcoats, The Buff Medways, and all those other bands that describe the prolific career of Wild Billy Childish. This is retro garage rock 'n' roll with no pretentiousness; production values are optional.
