Wild Billy Childish has been recording and performing since the 1977 punk explosion. The Pop Rivets, Thee Milkshakes, The Headcoats and The Buff Medways are just a few musical outfits that Billy has been involved with. Billy is also an internationally exhibited artist and poet.
The William Loveday Intention is the latest incarnation. The groups 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 ‘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’ with over 14 LPs being recorded during the lockdown period at Jim Riley’s Ranscombe Studios.
‘The Jutland Sea’ is a tribute to all that fought in the Battle Of Jutland in 1916 – the largest naval battle of the The Great War. Billy’s Grandfather was aboard HMS Thunderer. ‘Scapa Flow’ (not to be confused with the track of the same name by The Milkshakes) is an instrumental in honour of the home base of The Grand Fleet.
Limited to 500 hand-numbered copies.
The fiftieth release on the Spinout Nuggets label, this will mostly be available here, the band members and all good record outlets worldwide.
‘I’m so happy to have made these records that are for no audience – but hopefully will find one. These are as true to my heart as anything I’ve done.’ William Loveday – December 2020.
Produced by ‘Spook’ Loveday.
