If I recall correctly, somebody was talking about the animosity betwixt LGJ and the mummies in a MMR review of a mummies' bootleg. I might be wrong. I've smoked alot of pot...

What about The Mummies vs. Billy Childish, i.e. "That's Mighty Childish"?

I think that was more of an homage.

I thought they had some kinda spat back when, or at least I got that idea from something Mel from the Phantom Surfers once told me. Something like, Mr. Childish said that if not for him none o' those San Francisco guys would be doing what they were doing. Then they got back at him with the song. I can't remember anyway and it doesn't matter.

CHILDISH/MUMMIES ARE BOTH A HOOT, BUT NEITHER IS THE ORIGINATOR OF ANYTHING, AT LEAST MUSIC-WISE.

I heard Childish put out "Fuck CD's It's The Mummies" though...

[i]The Mummies vs. Billy Childish

Mike Maker told me he saw the Mummies and Childish play on the same bill years ago in Spokane

I'm sure. I know they were never enemies. I just heard the above-mentioned story & figured it was playful spite; not to be confused with something like the recent Jack White episode.

No. That was a Mike Miraconda (sp?) recorded session that I believe was deliberately leaked to John at Sympathy because John was responsible for some of the bootlegs coming out at that time. Something about Mummies didn't like the sound from the session, and never paid Mike, so Mike got pissed, gave the middle finger by releasing it to John to be bootlegged. At least that was the rumor mill at the time.

No, that was the "Tales from the Crypt" LP/ "Fuck the Mummies" CD. "Fuck CD's It's The Mummies" was put out on Hangman Records, Billy Childish's label.

Oh, you are right Tapecase, I wasn't paying close enough attention to the title in reference. Thanks for correcting me.

"Fuck CD's..." is just the UK version of the telstar LP. "fuck the mummies" was the boot LGJ put out. it was originally intended for crypt records, i'm told, but crypt didn't want to put it out.

Well, to add to the confusion/geekiness, actually, I think the Mummies hated how the sessions came out and didn't allow Crypt to release it, didn't get along with Mariconda, etc etc.
