Poems of a Backwater Visionary

Billy Childish

CD: 9.99: ISBN 987-1-899021-15-4

A cult figure of poetry, art & music - honest, hard-hitting & humourous. 'One of Britain's genuine, if genuinely unsung poets' NME

This CD features 62 poems drawn from across Billy's works. Most of the texts can be found in the new collection 'the uncorrected billy childish' published by The Aquarium

"What rage fuels these 62 poems! The words of Childish's Woodcutter - "I was cut, so I cut too" - could be his motto as he rails against his despicable self, his abusive parents and society: violent rage assuaged only by holding his child to his 'aching heart'" Rachel Redford, The Observer

The CD is presented as a reverse-board digipac with original woodcuts by Bill Hamper
