REJECTS & RARITIES SALE 2024

We have 2 copies of this fantastic box set to sell.

No.s 114 and 124 from an edition of 200.

The contents of both are in mint condition as is the box of number 114.

The bottom left hand corner of box 124 is bumped.

The 7″ record is the CTMF song Thatcher’s Children set to the tune of The Clash’s  London Calling.

In order to pre-empt any legal action from Universal Music we wrote our own cease and desist letter from them as a “deride and disorientate” strategy in a way that we thought was obviously fake. The response from fans online was outrage that Universal Music would dare to stifle Billy’s creativity, so we then had to issue another letter from “the real” Universal apologising for their apparent rash rush to litigious action, claiming no such action and that the original letter was a forgery. Subsequently we released a letter from L-13 explaining that we thought the letters were real, explaining why we published them. To wrap it up, we wrote a final letter that revealed a Masonic connection between Mick Jones and Steve Lowe, making everything ok.

A classic piece of Childish/L-13 trickster mischief complete with a collaborative Jamie Reid/Billy Childish God Save Margaret Thatcher poster with a real safety pin through her lip, a DVD of the video, and copies of the four letters, all housed in a stamped and labeled custom made box.

Very scarce.
