Lyrics

Death Dentist
There's an evil man, who'll stop at nothing at all
He has a devious plan, that causes empires to fall

He can get ya when he wants ya, he can do what he likes
Cause he's armed to the teeth, with electrical spikes
He's possessed of a first-class criminal brain
And an unlimited supply of novocaine

Cause he's the
Death dentist
Death dentist
He's going to get you now
He's a
Death dentist
Death dentist

He evades detection with incredible skill
Interfering cops perish on the end of his drill
And thought the rumours are rife, nobody knows his name
So the CIA and the KGB and MI5 and Interpol all call him the same
That's
Death dentist
Death dentist
He's going to get you now
He's a
Death dentist
Death dentist

Now some people say he is out of his mind
Oh they don't appreciate the extent of his crimes
But when he gets in at you, you won't have no choice
You know you're a goner when you hear his voice
He leans right up close; you think "this is it"
He looks you in the mouth and says "this won't hurt a bit"
Cause he's a
Death dentist
Death dentist
He's going to get you now
Death dentist
Death dentist
He's going to get you now
Death dentist
Death dentist
He's going to get you now
Death dentist
Death dentist
He's going to get you now

The Human Jungle (single)
The title comes from a rather noir little TV series from the early Sixties wherein the great Herbert Lom played the extremely sexy and not entirely unbrilliant Dr. Alexander Kordu, a psychiatrist with the handy ability to sort out even the most appalling cases within sixty minutes.

Hamburg (live)
We were all disappointed at the way this came out. The concert was great, but logistics prevented us from making anything much more than a glorified bootleg. Still, live albums are best as souvenirs anyway, so I guess some people regard it fondly. Lots of entertaining photos to look at anyway...

Bloody Nonsense (compilation)
The Jazz Butcher and his group are not in the business of belonging; they are too old and too obstreperous to conform to some attention-seeking image or commercially viable formula. Rather, they bring their not inconsiderable talents to bear on whatever happens to be in the way at the time. The results can only be described as essential.

    I was listening to Big Questions on the way home from work today, and realized I didn't know all the lyrics. When I looked at the lyrics here,I realized I knew even less than I thought. I always thought the chorus included "He's going to get you NUMB" Oh well, this is one of the JBC songs that didn't do much for me at first, but for some strange reason just keeps growing on me, even after all these years. -jm
