The distaff garage band Thee Headcoatees was one of the innumerable projects spawned by the one-man cottage industry Billy Childish as a vehicle for his inexhaustible catalog of songs.
Originally dubbed the Delmonas, the girl group was created as a sister band for Childish's band the Milkshakes, serving similar duty as a counterpoint to his subsequent project Thee Headcoats. 1991's Girlsville was the first Thee Headcoatees LP, followed a year later by Have Love Will Travel. In 1994, they issued the first of two joint concert releases with Thee Headcoats, Wild Billy Childish and His Famous Headcoats Live! At the Wild Western Room London, Featuring Thee Headcoatees!; the second set, The Sound of the Baskervilles, appeared in 1995. In 1997, Thee Headcoatees issued the LPs Punk Girls and Bozstik Haze. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
