Billy Jenkins (born 5 July 1956) is an English blues guitarist, composer, and bandleader. The band released several albums, including Sounds Like Bromley and Uncommerciality. In the 1990s, Jenkins recorded several albums on Oliver Weindling's Babel Records and led some seasons at the Vortex Jazz Club. Scratches of Spain is an album by English experimental jazz guitarist and bandleader Billy Jenkins, featuring the Voice of God Collective. It was released on the Babel Records label in 1987. As with many of Jenkins' records, Scratches of Spain showcases Jenkins' "spaß jazz" approach which combines serious musicianship with conceptual irreverence, musical jokes and détournement.
As a boy, Billy Jenkins (. 956, Bromley, Kent) sang in occasional choirs at St. Paul's and Westminster Abbey, toured and recorded for legendary record label boss Clive Davis, as a teenager with art rock band Burlesque (2) (1972-77), performed as a young adult with 'alternative musical comedy' duo Trimmer & Jenkins (1979-82) and drummer Ginger Baker before founding (in 1981).
