Long shot motel 2
I was nostalgically looking to see if I could find my previous comment with the subject line "Long shot motel" (see below, assuming you're reading in the default newest-first order), and lo - 'tis still there! Just a follow-up to say Pat played a lovely solo set on the night, and despite sound problems (sorry Pat), an essential contribution to this a perfect day, so thanks Pat, for some treasured memories!

All the best, Chris and Julie

btw love the new album!

Tour. Please.
Dear sir,

Miss you and your noise. Saw you in a few places over the years, ...ah, decades.

Last saw you at the DNA Lounge in S.F.. There was a woman quite smitten with you selling 'merch'. She was from Canada. Did you marry?

Come visit and play!

Aw, the list is gone!
Aw, the list is gone! I know it's been a while, but I was hoping. I'm not a fan of myspace and I wanted to keep tabs on the doings of Pat, etc. Thanks for all your work over the years, David. Long time no see.

either. Thanks,

Dear Pat --

I have just completed the authorized (!!!!) Harlan Ellison documentary film, "Dreams With Sharp Teeth". See here:

I would like to get in touch with you about your song "Harlan", for possible inclusion. Can you drop me a line? My contact information is available on our web home page, which is above.

Hi Pat, don't suppose you'd consider playing a wedding would you? Me and my fiancee have been JBC fans since we met... as much as you can drink?

Where are you.....where are you my JBC! We miss you dearly...we need our doses! Come back...come back....come back...Please come back!

It's pains me that JBC has diminished! It's like DEATH! You have no idea, how deep the cut feels!

Forever my devotion to JBC!

Future tours outside the UK/Germany??
Any chance that the Jazz Butcher (solo or with any one of the conspirators) will get back to San Francisco or (less likely but Preferably) Perth, Australia in the near future? Although the CDs get me by it is always nice to see how it all comes together live and in person.

Just putting my request in!

Missin' the Fish...
Yo Mister Fish sir. Q.Q.(quick question)
If you were to contemplate revisting Calgary or Canada, could you, should you, would you contact me prior to as I'd
be interested in promoting thy show.
Hope & trust all is well.

How about a gig in or near Munich - Recently I told my 6 year old boy about the best club-band ever ...
Kaiser Heribert, Bavaria 22Apr2006 6:29 AM
I cannot believe the JB is still going strong. Hee hee I have all the original glass records!!!! That shows my age - went to gigs from 1983 when David J joined up. Stopped the gigs after a few years cos I went abroad and just bought the CDs. Thought you had all disbanded! Music still superfantisco - how about a gig in MK cos NPTON a bit seedy for an old gal like me. I forgive you all the humiliation I suffered as an innocent young thing back then! Bloody photographers!

any chance to see you in germany again? any place, anywhere?
dortmund, germany 26Dec2005 11:35 AM
Ah, that explains it
Site turns a '[at]-remove-' into a '-at-' - which of course looks silly when you read it. So do I get on the mailing list now? Maybe that's a bit ambitious...
Lancaster, UK 28Nov2005 3:05 PM
Well that's rubbish isn't it?
This mailing list banter doesn't work - the email address is just bunkum, I tried changing the '-at-' to an '[at]-remove-', but sheesh, life can be uphill enough without this kind of vertical slalom. Bah, hamburg.

Does Pat ever play anywhere north of the Northampton? Only ever saw 1 gig, and that was in Dingwall's in 89/90 - good it was, although the crowd was a little aloof; I'd like to see 'em play again though.
Lancaster, UK 28Nov2005 3:01 PM
Hello PAT,

it seems so long...

when are you coming back in town ?

see you soon

good luck

Hmm, i seem to have been rejected by your mailing list, oh
the misery of being snubbed by a machine. Anyhoo hope to
see you at jojo's.
Please feel free to send any random bolx, just for the thrill
of making my poor heart sing & to salve the sting of
boomerang emails.

Is the mailing list still active?
I've not received a posting in months. My attempts to post to it bounce back. Wassup?

Evening, I'm wanting to resubscribe to the list now that I've fixed the old PC and my old e mail doesn't exist anymore. Good to see those old tribute mp3s up on the site, though a LITTLE embarrassed about my version. Ach I was young(ish) at the time...
Pat, lost your email address along with everything else on my pc a year or so ago, hope everything is going swimmingly.
Cheers, Marko

mailing list inquiry
Haven't seen an e-mail in awhile. I may not be getting list mail as it could have something to do with my isp changing their name around. Please add me to the mailing list if that's the case, thank you.
Kris in Buffalo 7Nov2004 9:24 AM
Hey there.
My band (which just reformed recently) is on the JBC compilation from 2000. Would you mind changing the contact on the site to this? (I'm in the process of getting rid of the pop-ups on the site.)
Thanks much.
-Carol of Fat Little Demons
P.S. Please add me to the mailing list.

How I lost religion and found the JBC
1991 While I was on a Mormon mission in Alabama. That was a good year. Nothing like listening to the JBC while driving down dark Alabama backroads and avoiding armadillos.
Scottsdale, AZ 19Aug2003 2:05 PM
anyone know where online I can find JB t-shirts?
herbert lom 29Jul2003 8:35 AM
I'd fish anytime... you know...
Merci pour ces années de bonnes melodies! In fact, The JB are to me such a work of inspiration just like the Church (Kilbey, Willson-Piper and Koppes), Pale Fountains! I can definitely say I've enjoyed listening to the words and great guitar ever since the beginning. Thanks!

it would be an exceedingly good idea for you fellows to expose idyllic santa barbara CA to your inimitable musical stylings and, uh, sensibilities.

live wordage
Just read your review of wilson on six band night.
am enamoured of your word usage and your love of the streets. My fave is Sharp darts, if this had been 1979 it would be an indie classic instead of getting lost in a dance culture thing. but anyway
it's nice to see you still keepin' on mit the rockin'my crew helicopter are still scraping away.
our fingernails are tough from all this hanging on

Thank you for all the great music over the
years. Its bands like you that make a lifetime
impression. I want and need a signed something
from the band. I can't find any cds I want,also
I haven't seen you guys since you played the coach
house in california where I live. Since all hope of seeing you soon or finding a copy of Distressed
Gentlefolk is gone I figure I could purchase some-thing cool signed by the band to hang on my wall.
Thank you, love you guys.
