Whether we like it or not Billy Childish’s name is synonymous with that of Tracy Emin’s, and his relationship with her is often the focus of unwanted media attention. With the publication of his new novel, and pre-empting the fact that like his two other novels it will be mistaken for a work of biography rather than fiction, I sat down with Billy to ask him a few questions about her in an attempt to clarify a few historical points.
SL: So, your new novel. Sex Crimes of the Futcher, what is Tracy Emin going to say about it?
BC: Nothing, the book is fiction, it has nothing to do with Tracy
SL: Well, we’ll come back to that, but whether you like it or not the names of Billy Childish and Tracy Emin are linked in people’s consciousness. It was your name after all that featured prominently in her tent, and she has been quoted earlier in her career as saying that you were one of the biggest influences of her life.
BC: Well, she only used to let that slip when she was drunk. I’d still be happy to be friends with Tracy but she rang and left a message to say that I am no longer her friend.
