New JBC lp duly completed in secure Northampton location.1994 live line-up
stumbled through a series of tunes and such under Butcher's direction, aided
and abetted by a number of the usual suspects; Alex Lee on guitar, Alex Green
on saxes, that sort of thing.Max Read was engineer for the session, and he also
contributed a lot of the backing vocals.He is a good looking chap, non-smoker,
very able and agreable.Judge Curtis was on hand to play the Hungarian
"Where did you get that?"
"I got it from Jane."
"Jane the Pain, who do you think?"
A chap from Stranger Tractors called Bolly played dijeridoo on one number.
Writer currently unable to establish JBC motives behind this.
Musical Dave, of Northampton combo Ubu Swirl (Do they know that the JBC call
them "Hobo Swill"?), contributed a spiffy guitar,and there were further vocal
contributions by friends and family.The WOLFS, I am assured, are not a sample.
The Butcher mixed one or two of the shorter tracks, but the vast majority of
the mixing was handled - in his own inimitable style - by producer DAVID J.
David gave the impression that he was having a whale of a time.
The JBC themselves are agreed that "Man 0f The Match" on this record has to
be Dooj.Apart from dismissing his bass parts in about 36 minutes, he also
contributed guitar and some astonishing backing singing....and he plays the
SYNTHESISER!Moves instituted by the drummer to entitle the album "DOOJ IS COOL" were,
however, swiftly and brutally suppressed by the ruling junta.The title remains a
Songs (and stuff) on the record are as follows, though no definitive order has
yet been established.(The Butcher won't let any of the band have a cassette copy.)
A GREAT VISITATION OF ELEPHANTS
WHEN ENO SINGS
THE UGLIEST SONG IN THE WORLD
COPS AND HOSPITALS
TRUCK OF FEAR
BLUES FOR DEAN READ
WAITING FOR SUMO
SURF GEAR IN IDAHO
There are supposed to be a couple of out-takes floating around too.
The idea is that Creation in London will be issuing a single of "16 Years" in
January 1995, and then releasing the LP in February, after which the JBC will
be gratefully dusting off their passports and going back to Full Employment
within the EU and beyond.
Northampton-area residents may be entranced to know about the
JBC CHRISTMAS IN THE FRIDGE event which will be taking place on Weds. 21st December
in a LARGE TENT in back of Slurps Bar. Bridge Street, Northampton.
The 5-piece JBC will appear (it is not known whether Dooj or his
grisly substitute will be on bass), supported by D.J.s and Judge
Curtis' excellent Stranger Tractors.-
That's your lot from the Sports Desk.
Now where did I leave that beaker?
