Damaged Goods present a CD reissue of two classic beat albums by The Milkshakes, Thee Knights Of Trashe (1984) and The Milkshakes' Revenge! Trash From The Vaults (1987). The Milkshakes were mainly Mickey Hampshire (guitar/Vox), Billy Childish (guitar/Vox), Bruce Brand (drums) and Russ Wilkins (bass). When punk group The Pop Rivets broke up in 1980, Billy Childish joined forces with Mickey Hampshire, who was a Pop Rivets roadie. The two began writing songs together and the group released their first LP, Talking 'Bout... Milkshakes! in 1981. With Childish and Hampshire sharing guitar and vocal duties, Bruce Brand on drums, and Bertie on bass (later replaced by Russ Wilkins then John Agnew), the Milkshakes's sound was a primitive blend of British beat groups, like the early Kinks at their toughest, and hard-rocking American guitar instrumentalists, like Link Wray. This sound came to be known as the "Medway Sound" and the core members have been playing a variation on it throughout their whole careers.
