Billyclub formed in the frozen Tundra that is Kenosha Wi (USA) - March 95. The lads started gigging and built up a following. They met Erv from Idol records at one of Terry Bones Sunday afternoon piss ups in the Chicago burbs (very nice thank you). The 1st release was a 7” single with Self Help and a cover of 999’s “Homicide.” It was well received and got reviewed by none other than Billboard magazine. The debut album "It’s Better to be Pissed Off", was the next release (96). After the 1st successful US tour the band relocated to Dallas.
