The William Loveday Intention* is the latest incarnation of song and dance man Wild Billy Childish, who has been recording and performing since the 1977 Punk explosion; notably with The Pop Rivets, The Milkshakes, Thee Mighty Caesars, Thee Headcoats, The Buff Medways and CTMF, and many more!
The ‘intention’ of The William Loveday group was to revisit some early tunes which Billy had imagined could be orchestrated. This was the beginning of a ‘career in a year’ when he accidentally recorded over 14 LPs during the lockdown at Jim Riley’s Ranscombe Studios in Rochester.
Between painting and poetry, Billy has released over 170 albums and many singles. Artists as diverse as Mudhoney and Kylie Minogue have cited Childish as an influence.
Here we have eight of the latest of the Intention’s recordings, which includes some interpretations of some Blues-Folk classics.
*The group’s name can be attributed to Billy’s grandmother, Ivy Loveday, who registered his birth as William Ivy Loveday, with William being his great grandfather’s name.
The ninety-fourth release on Spinout Nuggets, this record will be available via the label, the group and all very good record outlets.
