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 2015s 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 Wilkos music is also loads and loads of fun. Citing David hes 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 doesnt 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 its title the name of his birthplace Canvey Island five covers of Wilkos songs and a new original The Wave Pictures song.
