Hello, my name is Bob and I am a new member of the JBC. I recently
found out about the list after sending a note to a member of another
mailing list (Tim Connors) who a JB quote in his .sig. He was kind
enough to inform me of this list.
I've been listening to the Butcher since the mid 80's. I was first
introduced to him via a tape of the 'Sex and Travel' ep (I believe that
was the title, I never got the actual pressing -IDIOT-). It had Big
Saturday on it if I remember.
The first time I saw the JB was in Manchester in 1985, they opened for
an american band that was part of a sixties revival movement (I don't
quite recall the name, It might have had rain in the name). They did an
encore together though once again my memory fails me.
I have since seen him an the various incarnations every time they have
played Seaatle plus a couple of trips up to Vancouver, BC. There hasn't
been a visit here in over a year and a half, and I am starting to get
Perhaps I haven't been looking hard enopugh but the latest release I
have is 'Western Family', I have't seen the new studio release, so
perhaps someone would be kind enough to fill in some details for me.
I think that as time goes by I find myself listening to 'Fishcoteque'
and Condition Blue' the most often in their entireties. Though their
are many individual songs that rank as favorites. These would include
'Rain' - ''Big Saturday' - 'Buffalo Shame' - 'PartyTime' - 'Sex and
Travel' - the list goes on...
I am getting a bit lengthy I see, so I will say seeya for now, and I am
looking forward to hearing from other Butcher listeners (I don't know
too many out here that's for sure).
