The UK label Damaged Goods announced this week that they will be reissuing two classic LPs from Billy Childish’s Thee Headcoats. The 1990 album “The Kids Are All Square” and the 1996 album “Kights Of The Baskervilles” will both be repressed on vinyl, with a limited splatter vinyl version available for each. Here’s the info from the label:
Knights Of The Baskervilles LP re-issue
A 12” LP only re-issue of a long deleted, previously US only Thee Headcoats album.
Originally issued in 1996 on the Birdman Records label (BMR-013)
12 tracks including ‘This Wondrous Day’ ‘She’s In Disguise’ & ‘What You See Is What You Are’
The cover has been totally reworked by Billy Childish
Thee Headcoats were formed from the ashes of Billy Childish’s previous combo ‘Thee Mighty Caesers’ in 1988 and released 20 albums and around 40 singles before they called it a day in 2000.
The Kids Are All Square LP re-issue
A 12” LP re-issue of arguably the best Thee Headcoats album.
Originally issued in 1990 on Billy’s own Hangman Records label.
12 tracks including bona fide Headcoats classics
‘All My Feelings Denied’ ‘Davey Crockett’ & ‘Cowboys Are Square’
This album also features the first ever recording by Thee Headcoatees ‘Meet Jacqueline’ which also ended up on their debut album ‘Girlsville’.
