Charging up the hill towards our summit endpoint, we’d like to conclude this Medway reverie with Billy’s first solo album, recorded in 1982 but issued in 1988 by Hangman. Raw, uncompromising, and putative, lonesome and hypnotic and savage. This and the Jack Ketch LP are two that we know Medway enthusiasts will be happy to see included here.
