The Men With The Golden Gonads is the brains of the late, great Tim Webster.
Tim made plenty of racket in his time, mostly with The Sputniks (releasing a 10” album in 1986), Timmy Tremolo and The Tremolons (who featured on three of compilations on Billy Childish’s Hangman Records), Johnny Gash and plenty more!
Tim would spend much of his spare (and not spare) time at Gruts Cafe on Rochester High Street, where many Medway musicians would gather to plan musical world domination.
The Men With The Golden Gonads also included Tim’s brother Stephen on saxophone, with Russ Baxter (Phaze, The Treasures Of Mexico, The Discords, and currently Secret Affair) on drums, Tony Cook (The Gravediggers, The Fugitives) on bass, Presun Amin (Envy) on organ, and Dave Gibbons on trumpet, some of which had also played with Tim in The Tremolons.
Tim Webster sadly left this world on 20th June 2020…
During 1990 and 1991, The Men With The Golden Gonads went into Red Studios, Kent and recorded a number of tracks, with Billy Childish on producer duties.
This album contains fourteen of those recordings, which includes eleven of the band’s favourite songs to cover, and three of Tim Webster’s originals.
The seventieth release on Spinout Nuggets, this record will be available via the label, the band and all very good record outlets.
