Song #9: I’m Living In A Grave-Billy Childish

billy-childish

Billy Childish is from England and does it all: writer, painter, poet and musician. Born in 1959 in Chatham, Kent, due to dyslexia that was never identified, he left school at age sixteen and started doing masonry. The prolific artwork he did at that time helped him get into art school, but was expelled due to his controversial views and poetry. He then became a true independent artist, always working on his own, outside of the system, never having been signed to a record label, yet producing over 120 records. He is the true definition of someone who has followed the punk ideal do it yourself .
