Description

Limited to 500 copies. Goodchilde started life as party covers band Johnny and The Bandits in the late 80’s. They formed specifically to play garage and rock’n’roll cover versions because it was the best way to get invited to parties and drink for free. Luckily, they were pretty good at the rock’n’roll part as well as the drinking. For a few years they were a regular soundtrack at rowdy Medway parties. With Glenn Prangnell, Jon Barker, Allan Crockford and Wolf Howard in the group, it was no accident that they were good. Despite the unserious reasons for playing, the band was actually made up of members of more celebrated and influential Medway bands, such as The Prisoners, The Daggermen, James Taylor Quartet, The Offbeats and The Kravin’ A’s. The list of their ‘other’ bands was long then, and it’s even longer now. Maybe they were the first Medway ‘supergroup’. Eventually, they tired of the constant easy acclaim and applause and decided to write their own material. They became Goodchilde (no one really knows why they chose that name) and set out on the tougher path of playing original songs to audiences who still wanted cover versions. They gigged and toured regularly, recorded and released two albums (“Elizabeth’s Talking Straight Into My Head” and “Straight Out The Fridge”) and one single (“Sarapeutic”/”Chips With Everything”). In 1998 they decided they’d had enough and disbanded, reconvening at the occasional party as Johnny and The Bandits when the money (or drink) was right. Before they disbanded, in 1996, Goodchilde returned to the studio for what turned out to be the last time to record a single (with The Groove Connection’s Matt Brewer on Hammond organ for Email Female), which remains unreleased, until now! In addition to the previously mentioned bands, Glenn, Jon, Allan and Wolf are still making noise between them within Groovy Uncle, The Senior Service, Wild Billy Childish & CTMF and The Galileo 7 to name but a few.
