Billy Child


Come On, Baby…It Is Time To Rock'N'Roll!!


Tear It Up Records


Billy Child 10inch coverToshi, Toru and Markee are the 3 members of the Tokyo trashrock band Billy Child.

The band play over the top songs in a style that blends 50s R'n'R with 60s garage, combined with the energy of '77 punk.

All songs on this record are originals, and the band has no association with Billy Childish, though it is a pretty sure bet that any fans of his will also enjoy this band.

Let's Go "Shakin And Shout" and Rollin' Hot sound like The Rezillos and The Dickies. Rumble Twist sounds like The Undertones in their Teenage Kicks period. All the music on this 10inch is fun and upbeat. I like this record and think it is way better than many other bands getting much more attention. Find it and buy it if you can.
