Thee Headcoats, ‘Heavens To Mergatroyd, Even! It’s Thee Headcoats! (Already)’ (1990, Sub Pop Records)

Allmusic (4/5): AllMusic Review by Paula Carino:

This 1990 album, originally released on indie stalwart SubPop, established the basic template for Billy Childish’s oeuvre for the next decade to come: simple garage riffage, snotty, smart lyrics, and a tinny, devil-may-care production that underscores the casual desperation behind the music.
