Well, you would say that. I think we need to co-opt some brain
dead Rush fan or something onto this group to inject a note of
dissent.

Well, you may be right.... I guess a cursory listen to the earlier
stuff might give the impression that The Jazz Butcher (crazy name,
crazy guy!) is some kind of a novelty band. But we know better, huh?

Evidence: I know when I first heard Butch (a phrase that reminds me
of Swaggart saying "When I met Jesus I was a SINNER") I was young,
impressionable and *amused* by it. "Funneeee songs!". I was kind of
into novelty at the time so I stuck it out.

Perhaps there's such a thing as being too clever within the popular
medium...?
