The Jazz Butcher's music includes dreaming psychedelia and folk music. To the question what they have to do with butchers:

Pat: "As much as to jazz, that means nothing."

There is a lot of humour in your songs. Aren't you affraid that the audience find you simple? Once a journalist wrote about you that you are either geniouses or idiots.

"Absolutely not, these songs are not humorous at all. I still get moved again and again when i come to a beautiful line in the lyrics.

We are playing with something and running away to try something else. Because there is something new in every corner."
