about

Expansive book-styled package of the first four albums from The Jazz Butcher’s early Creation Records’ years – 1988-1991.

Featuring the much praised ‘Fishcotheque’, ‘Big Planet, Scarey Planet’, ‘Cult Of The Basement’ and ‘Condition Blue”.

A sonic journey that takes The Jazz Butcher from a Weather Prophets-propelled rock ‘n’ roll visionary through to a lean jazz-tinged pop exponent.

Underlining the clever lyrics, witticisms, one-liners, melancholy, irony and conceptualisation of main man Pat Fish that came to maturity across his previous four albums for Glass (collected on Fire and much praised later last year as ‘The Wasted Years’).

Hailed by the press of the day:

“Punning, clever displays of hurt and revulsion.” Select

“That rare beast, an LP of cool, laid back pop.” Record Mirror

“A vicious mismatch of outrage, black humour and sentiment.” Sounds

“If it emanated from a more in-vogue source, would currently be having its maverick genius analysed to death.” Melody Maker

Praise for The Jazz Butcher’s ‘Wasted Years’.

“They are a band well worth re-visiting or discovering for the first time. A release very much recommended.” 8/10 Louder Than War

“An incomparable genre-bending act that requires a substantive re-evaluation. Between the pages and the artwork of this reissue lies a time capsule of a time that is just as pertinent today as the time when it was created.” 9/10 Under The Radar
