• vermin poets Vermin Poets (7", £7.95)

    label: smartguy

    On this the first release by the VERMIN POETS, ex-drunk-and-compulsive-masturbator late-night-vomiter-of-good-liquor BILLY CHYLDISH allies himself with FIRE DEPT. frontman NEIL PALMER to continue the embrace of amateurism. Also along for the ride are the like minds of JUJU CLAUDIUS and the trusty WOLF HOWARD. Banish the notion that this is merely another "Billy Chyldish group." You'll hear no Chyldish guitar and only backing vox on this, as England's National Treasure has been relegated to bass and co-songwriting duties. What we have here is true collaboration with Palmer and Chyldish succeeding now as they have in the past-by cheerfully mocking their own craft all the while praising limitation. Released to coincide with the Billy Childish: Unknowable but Certain exhibition at London's ICA in 2010. Pressed in an edition of 500.
