405: Billy Childish at Dirty Water Club

I think it's safe to say that if there was an award for best moustache in rock then Billy Childish would probably take that hairy award home. He'd also win the best hat wearing male award too but that's a different story all together!  Having only been to the Dirty Water Club once before I was convinced that I was in for a quiet night but damn was I wrong. There seemed to be more people outside smoking at this gig than there was insidethe venue last time I went!The second we arrived Mr Childish and the Musicians of the British Empire arrived to bring their blend of Garage/Punk. I'm not going to lie and tell you that I know a great deal about Billy Childish, apart from his prolific art career, but what I will tell you is that when he's one hell of a performer and on the basis of this performance I wouldn't mind checking him out again.
