More Info:

CD Box set containing three albums by The Buff Medways - (Steady The Buffs, 1914, Medway Wheelers) Three brilliant albums by the Buff Medways, neatly contained in one box, complete with booklet! The albums are Steady The Buffs, 1914, and Medway Wheelers. Buffs leader Billy Childish kindly answered a few questions about the band... The Buff Medways were formed quickly after Thee Headcoats split. What was it like working with a new rhythm section? We were in the studio recording the last Headcoats pieces then swapped rhythm section halfway through and the Buffs recorded their first 45. So, a very quick change over, five minutes. What bands would you say were the biggest influence on the Buffs' sound? The rhythm section really, wolf and Johnny (Barker) liked the Who, so I tried to write to suite them. (They had played in The Daggermen and I produced their first 45 along with Big Russ, so I'd been a fan of The Daggermen, who were fans of the Milkshakes. Johnny and Wolf are good few years younger than me.) Graham Day was previously in the Prisoners; can you remember the first time you met him? I met Graham through Bruce - he brought him and Allan round to a Milkshakes rehearsal. They had been fans of the Pop Rivets when they were kids. Graham joined the Buffs on bass when Johnny left. Graham also played drums for Thee Mighty Caesars when Bruce left that group. Who had the idea of wearing military uniforms? Did you have a favourite one? That was also based on The Daggermen, via Jimi Hendrix (thou I did wear an old artillery jacket in Thee Headcoats at times). I quite like our summer kit (loosely Australian great war period). Though technically that was The Musicians of the British Empire. We changed the name when Graham couldn't make it to Australia and Julie had to learn the bass overnight.
