Mickey and The Milkshakes – Please Don’t Tell My Baby

Their sound is a little more tougher than their name. I hear the early Kinks and the British invasion in these two songs that I posted.

This song was the B side to It’s You released in 1982 (both are posted at the bottom of the post). 

The Milkshakes formed in 1980 in Chatham, Kent, England, after Billy Childish’s band… Pop Rivets broke up. Childish teamed up with former roadie Mickey Hampshire, who’d been fronting Mickey and the Milkshakes.

The Milkshakes were a prolific band, recording nine albums in their four years together, and the band was very much a blend of Childish raw writing and Hampshire’s more melodic songs.

The A side It’s You

The B side Please Don’t Tell My Baby

Please Don’t Tell My Baby

Please don’t tell my baby I saw her last night
Please don’t tell my baby I saw her last night
I saw her kiss that boy
I saw her kiss that boy
I saw her kiss that boy

Please don’t tell her that I know
’cause when I catch her gonna get it all
I’m gonna put it on the line
That I’ll take her…all her lying
She made me very mad
I’m gonna treat her bad
She gonna wish she never told the lie she had

I saw her kiss that boy
I saw her kiss that boy
I saw her kiss that boy
Last night

Please don’t tell my baby
Please don’t tell my baby
Please don’t tell my baby

  1. Real afficionados! I got to know The Milkshakes in 1982, at a concert in the Bern ISC Club, which I will never forget. Their music is a rhythm’n’beat, just like it was played in the early 60s. Sometimes you also hear old songs by Bo Diddley, Kinks or the Beatles, but the Milkshakes reproduce an atmosphere that the mostly smoothly recorded original beat LPs hardly have.
