A boxed set of 4 CDs featuring four classic albums by The Milkshakes in a clamshell box set complete with booklet.

The four albums in the set are - "Talking 'Bout Milkshakes", "After School Session", "Thee Knights Of Trashe", "The Milkshakes Revenge!".

The Milkshakes were mainly Mickey Hampshire (Git/Vox); Billy Childish (Git/Vox); Bruce Brand (Drums); Russ Wilkins (Bass).

When punk rock group the Pop Rivets broke up in 1980, Billy Childish joined forces with Mickey Hampshire, a Pop Rivets roadie who had been performing in a group called Mickey and the Milkshakes.

The two began writing songs together and the group released their first LP, "Talking 'bout Milkshakes!" in 1981.

The Milkshakes' sound was a primitive blend of British beat groups, like the early Kinks at their toughest, and hard-rocking American guitar instrumentalists like Link Wray.

This sound came to be known as the "Medway sound" and the core members have been playing a variation on it throughout their whole careers.

The Milkshakes were a very prolific group, recording nine records in their four years together, and the band was very much a blend of Childish's primitive songwriting and Hampshire's more melodic leanings.
