Album Review

Few artists are as prolific as Billy Childish, who seems to put out numerous records with numerous different bands every year. Most of the material is worthwhile, though, sometimes his frequent releases can be forgettable. Thee Headcoats' Knights of the Baskervilles is definitely one of his best records. Undoubtedly, he spent time writing a lot of these clever songs, and he's nailed down the blues here, too, on a couple of tunes, something most English songwriters would have a hard time with. The majority of the tunes have the usual frenzied, raw, dirty garage sound to them, while the lyrics are all very witty.

But records like this one should make him more than a cult figure, as his body of work is extremely lengthy, impressive, and always improving.
