The Jazz Butcher Lyrics
These lyrics are straight from the corrective pen (er... typewriter) of the songwriter himself.

Pat Fish said: "Here are the words. All the words, so far as I know. Maybe there's some more out there that we've missed, but - fuck it! that's all the words I's got for ya. So enjoy, why doncha?"

    I can't remember how, but I was certainly aware of Dean Reed in the eighties. His rather mysterious death certainly attratced attention in the UK press. Later I read Comrade Rockstar. Reggie Nadelson can't write, if you ask me. I did see the BBC show, which was quite interesting but was not helped by the involvement of La Nadelson. The "house" thing is based on an old East German pop song, where the "house" was clearly supposed to be the DDR itself. You'd probably have to ask Steve Winkler about that one...Pat x

    Hi, love your tune on Dean Reed.
    1.) so how'd you happen to come across Dean? I'm guessing from the Comrade Rockstar book and/or BBC production(?) We simply can NOT get a copy of the BBC show here in the US, so I haven't seen it.
    2.) can you tell me/us the long story?: [you wrote]:
    They walked out of the house
    with no trouble at all
    they walked out of the house
    and they went through The Wall
    (This is a vile perversion of a sixties DDR pop song about The Wall. It's a long story. )
