8x10 RC Silver Gelatin Print, all prints are printed by me in the darkroom using Omega enlarger and high quality RC papers. Back around early '95 I had made friends with the band Los Cincos AKA One Eyed Richard And The God Damned Liars. A friend of mine that worked at the local record store that happened to be where I hung out a lot during those years was really good friends with these guys. They were just kids and their band was really fun mixing a garage sound with a kinda noisy surf guitar pop sound. They told me to check out their upcoming Jabberjaw show because they were opening for Thee Headcoats. I didn't really know Thee Headcoats music at the time, but I did know that friends of mine loved them. Like loved them in really high regards, it wasn't until after I saw them live and saw years later did I realize how super influential this band was. Lead singer songwriter Billy Childish has a huge discography that puts most bands to shame. And mostly within a 10 year time span, he must have been writing a crazy amount of songs just to come up with the amount that has been documented. Super prolific and super in tune with the quality of style that makes up his sound. Billy Childish is one of those people from the punk scene that will always be regarded with importance in his contribution to music, style and aesthetic. The world has its icons and for those that listen to music and love listening to music of all genres, we have our icons. Some of them get the credit they deserve while others remain in the conscience of those that know about them. Billy Childish and Thee Headcoats definitely carved out their place in the history of music. Carved it out with a sharp semi distorted guitar tone and great songs.
