Here’s a particularly well-loved (or much-abused) single from my collection, Thee Headcoatees playing the classic “Strychnine” (also by the Sonics and the Cramps) and Thee Headcoats playing Branded. These, of course, were the female and male incarnations of Billy Childish’s 1990s garage punk outfit. Childish has said he started Thee Headcoattees (just Thee Headcoats with a trio of female singers) so that he could write love songs about boys and not feel weird about it. This single came out in 1993 on Twist Records and sometime between now and then (well, sometime between 1993 and about seven or eight years ago, whenever I quit smoking), I dropped a cigarette on it. A cigarette of love.

in honor of the passing of Tommy Ramone, I am listening to The Replacements 2nd greatest album, Tim, produced by Tommy Ramone himself.
It’s sad that we live in a world with zero living original Ramones and all the living members of The Eagles.
