I just spoke with Herr Fish. According to him, the new album should be
available here within days as an import, and by January as a domestic
release. Two american record companies are fighting over the rights to
it, I guess. He has been away working with a band called The Love Kittens.
They do a cover of Angels. While they were doing the cover of Angels,
the singer fell ill, and Pat was forced to finish the vocals.
The new type of music that he has been performing in France, and will be
performing in Spain and Germany in the next few months is called
"Gothic Techno-folk" and consists of him and a guitar player and a
saxophonist (i.e. Alex). Oh yeah, and a drum machine. He said he was really
pleased because they could just get on a train and ride around and not have
to worry about a drum kit. Speaking of drummers, both Paul and Mr. Jones
play on the new album.
15 people played on the new album, and he said that he was considering calling
the band "The Jazz Butcher Anti-Sonic Tabernacle".
The new album has a picture of "naked french people" on the sleeve. Another
Jean Paul Looney creation, I guess.
By the way, Devoid, Pat said to tell you "try to remember that the LEFT
pedal is the brake".
