Billy Childish - Colour Blinds Music Deafens - Tangerine Press
  • Two editions: 74 numbered and 26 lettered copies

With a new introduction by the poet.

A collection of 'new' unpublished poems from the 1980s, unearthed when Mr Childish was sorting material for the huge ICA, London solo retrospective earlier in 2010. Two of these poems were previewed in a Billy Childish e.p. in Dwang issue two. Also included are a number of poems taken from very rare, early and out-of-print pamphlets and books. Both editions contain a section of photographs of the original handwritten first drafts of six poems from the early 1980s.
