Description

Thee Headcoats - The Kids Are All Square - This Is Hip | Girlsville

Thee Headcoats were mainly Billy Childish (Git/Vox) Bruce Brand (Drums) and Johnny Johnson (bass), they formed in 1989 after Billy's previous band Thee Mighty Caesers gave up the ghost. By 1992 they had already released something like 6 albums and 15 singles one of which was Damgood 1, a split single with Thee Headcoatees.

During the '90's I must have seen them 60 times, I even went over to Japan with them in 1993. There was something really natural about them, no bullshit. We did the 'We hate The Fuckin' NME' single after a sad old journo (Johnny Cigarettes) walked out of their gig in Archway after insisting that he should get in for free as he was from the NME and then reviewing Thee Headcoatees by saying their was no girls in the band (he left before they came onstage!!).

Lots more releases followed including the great 'In Tweed We Trust' album. Thee Headcoats carried on touring and releasing records in every corner of the world until mid 2000 when they called it a day. Billy immediately formed a new band The Buff Medways and promptly became a press darling... it's a funny old game.

The Headcoatees are four fiesty girls from the Medway towns, Kyra Rubella, Holly Golightly, Ludella Black and Bongo Debbie started life as mates of Thee Headcoats doing a few songs on stage and then came the great idea to do a proper album, 'Girlsville' was recorded and a great new band was born. Whenever Thee Headcoats played Thee Headcoatees also did a set, at one time it seemed like they were more popular that the boys, more albums followed and we did a few singles plus a compilation of all their singles on one nice album. They called it a day in 1999 and are now all doing various musical projects.
