Led by Oxford philosophy graduate Pat Fish (the Jazz Butcher himself) and featuring a dazzling array of co-conspirators (including David Jay of Love And Rockets fame), The Jazz Butcher is one of the longest running and most cult pop bands in Britain, having recorded some 15 albums since its founding in 1982.
February 2016 will see the re-release of ‘Last Of The Gentleman Adventurers’, a record initially self-released as a result of a successful Pledge Music campaign to mark the 30th anniversary of The Jazz Butcher Conspiracy. Originally limited to just 1000 copies which quickly sold out, Fire Records will be releasing the album worldwide for the first time to coincide with a run of tour dates to be announced.
“The Jazz Butcher is one of the most brilliant incisive pop writers that Britain has produced since the glory days of Ray Davies and Pete Townsend. Criminally overlooked by a media obsessed with the next big thing instead of what is actually good. A truly great songwriter”.Alan McGee, president , Creation Records
“The Jazz Butcher was always something of a unique vehicle, a sort of musical dune buggy – it interweaves the influence of The Velvet Underground and Syd Barrett with the new wave energies of the day and leaves us all richer for looking in”Pete Kember - Spacemen 3
