Delmonas 5! [VINYL]
If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support?
British garage pop girl group, the Del Monas began life as the Milk-Boilers. If that moniker sounds suspiciously similar to that of the Billy Childish and Mickey Hampsire-led Milkshakes, it's no co-incidence: The trio got its start by singing backup on the lads' recordings (and dating the boys in the band). Sarah (who went with Mickey Hampshire), Hilary (with Russ Wilkins), and Louise (with Bruce Brand) took the lead on a rendition of the Beatles' Boys before striking out on their own with a couple of four-song EPs in 1984: Comin Home Baby (popularized by Mel Tormé) and Hello, We Love You (actually the Doors Hello, I Love You. ) In both cases, the Milkshakes served as their backing band and Childish and Hampshire wrote most of the originals.
