BILLY CHILDISH'S GRAVE is the name for the two covers that we made for the album "Los Cuatro de Billy", where four spanish bands from Madrid cover eight classic Childish tunes.
We have recorded two tracks, "Joe Strummer's Grave" (Re-named "Billy Childish's Grave") and "We 4 Beatles of Liverpool are". Both tracks are written and composed by Billy Childish's Musicians of the British Empire.
When Alberto Montaplez contact us for making this proyect, we decided since the beginning to make a total "Teenage Mutant Covers", wich means, keeping our groovie drums, our fuzzy guitars, shouts... our characteristic sound. We have also included a "reggaerage" split in one of the songs.
We are great fans of Billy Childish and we think that the best tribute to Childish is pissin' off his music, by our Trashy Style!
released December 7, 2014
Both tracks have been recorded by Alberto Montaplex at Gruta 77.
