London: The Hangman Bureau of Enquiry, n.d. (1999)
15 x 10.5cm, 8pp (self cover). Black on blue offset – the first edition of this ranting manifesto as written by Billy Childish and Charles Thomson and containing 20 statements to define the group’s collective and individual positions on matters such as being ‘against the sterility of the white wall gallery.’
Quotes Traci (sic) Emin’s claimed taunt at Childish: ‘Your paintings are stuck, you are stuck. Stuck! Stuck! Stuck!’ as a badge of honour rather than accurate criticism. Fine. Rare.
