Limited 10" vinyl pressing. 2017 from the acclaimed indie outfit. The always prolific The Wave Pictures release this exclusive EP with five very fine covers and an original in tribute to the legendary Wilko Johnson, mythical founder of the rhythm and blues band Dr. Feelgood. Following on from 2015's Billy Childish collaboration Great Big Flamingo Burning Moon, their recent acoustic record A Season in Hull and their LP Bamboo Diner In The Rain, The Wave Pictures pay tribute in Canvey Island Baby to one of their major influences: Wilko Johnson. For The Wave Pictures, Wilko's music is also loads and loads of fun. Citing David "he's a wonderfully idiosyncratic singer and an original songwriter, always finding a little trick in that old blues song form to make a new, poppy point". Wilko Johnson doesn't use effects pedals and neither do The Wave Pictures. They have made this EP out of fun. After all, it is homage to one of the most influential guitarists and to the career of this living legend. It is a 10" which has as part of it's title the name of his birthplace (Canvey Island), five covers of Wilko's songs and a new original The Wave Pictures song.
