Subject: chat with pat
i spoke with pat over the weekend and the butcher man hasnt
been doing too well. i may transcribe highlights of our conversation,
but in summary:
o yes! the new album has been completed, and it is "cult of
the basement 2." julian, alex lee (of the aeroplanes) and
laurence (!) play guitar. paul is still playing drums
(at least in the studio). about a dozen musicians showed up on it
and he was fretting over the credits when we talked.
o pat has been playing small shows in london which he describes as
being "very spacemen". lots and lots of delay and very little
beat. he is very proud of this latest sound, but has yet to
record it for release.
o next week he will be recording an EP with richard formby.
so perhaps he *is* about to record the new sound, as richard
has been producing the telescopes and other grunge bands.
o the tour. nothing definite, but possibly before december.
even then, he is not sure what he wants to perform - the traditional
new cult material or the new stuff he has been doing.
he is going to be over in the states visiting in august.
o pat had just returned from the west coast where he did some
vocal work with the blue aeroplanes. he is almost certain,
however that all his stuff will be cut.
o the Black Eg. all the delay effects on the Black Eg record are pats
guitar delay pedal before it blew up upon his return to england
in january. so he calls the Black Eg alum the "solo record for
my guitar pedal". apparently, the guitar pedal wasnt the only
thing to go to pieces in january. he laughed manically at the thought
that he recorded during this time. in england, the Black Eg
record is plastered with "Von Jazz Butcher" stickers. pat wanted
his involvement not to be known, so the stickers pissed him off.
the A C Lionheart (ha!) who wrote the liner notes is, of course, pat.
thats all i can remember right now.
off on a road trip to philadelphia in about an hour, i will
see if there is anything i forgot when i get back.
happy 5th of july.
