LP version. Colored vinyl. Painter/poet Billy Childish has released over 140 independent albums. SQ 1 is something like his 150th - no one knows for sure. As always great lines are delivered with deadpan humor: "The reason we didn't sound like the Smiths is because we wanted to sound like this" is Billy's reply to all the reviews of his band's work during the '80 and '90s - in the days when they stood all but alone as "the kings of garage rock" (New York Times). SQ 1 could be seen as a manifesto of punk rock defiance, a celebration of musical independence or simply a true document home-made rock and roll delivered as art, not commerce.
