Refused an interview at the local art college, he entered Chatham Dockyard , Kent, as an apprentice stonemason. On the basis of this work he was accepted into Saint Martin's School of Art , where he was friends with the artist Peter Doig , to study painting.
However, his acceptance was short-lived and he was expelled in before completing the course. He then lived on the dole for 15 years. Childish has practised yoga and meditation since the early s. As a prospective student lacking the necessary entry qualifications, Childish was accepted into art school four times on the strength of his paintings and drawings.
He did a foundation year at Medway College of Design now the University for the Creative Arts in , and was then accepted onto the painting department of Saint Martin's School of Art in , before quitting a month later.
He was re-accepted at St Martins in , but was expelled in for refusing to paint in the art school and other unruly behaviour. Childish has been cited as the influence for Emin's later confessional art. Childish has exhibited extensively since the s and was featured in the British Art Show in In Childish formed the "non organisation" The British Art Resistance, and held an exhibition under the title Hero of The British Art Resistance at The Aquarium L gallery in London: A collection of paintings, books, records, pamphlets, poems, prints, letters, film, photographs made in In a letter to Childish, the musician Ivor Cutler said of Childish: "You are perhaps too subtle and sophisticated for the mass market.
Childish has since been recording as bass player with The Spartan Dreggs , with Neil Palmer on vocals and guitar and Wolf Howard on drums. Childish is a confessional poet and has published over 40 collections of his work. There were, however, personality clashes in the group, particularly between Childish and Charles Thomson , who said: "There was friction between us, especially when he started heckling my poetry reading and I threatened to ban him from a forthcoming TV documentary.
He even threatened having bouncers on the doors of Medway Poets' readings to keep me out". Holly Golightly -Maybe the biggest surprise to me has been the success Holly Golightly has had away from Thee Headcoatees.
All of her solo projects have been good and she might be the most recognizable of all the Medway alumni. Her voice, lyrics and choice of cover songs have all been perfect. Being connected to Billy Childish and Jack White have helped, but to me she's done it all on her own. Get the singles comp "Singles Round Up" if you can.
Fabienne Delsol -The Bristols' two albums were both favorites and her two solo Lp's have been just as good. She has the sweetest voice and her backing band is talented featuring a few Kaisers and Toe Rag's Liam Watson. Reminds me of The Diaboliks, but with french-accented vocals.
All have been just as great as the classic Prisoners. His newest album "Tripled Distilled" is maybe his best yet, the songs "Better Man" and "Wanna Smoke" have terrific lyrics and strong vocals.
