    I was nostalgically looking to see if I could find my previous comment with the subject line "Long shot motel" (see below, assuming you're reading in the default newest-first order), and lo - 'tis still there! Just a follow-up to say Pat played a lovely solo set on the night, and despite sound problems (sorry Pat), an essential contribution to this a perfect day, so thanks Pat, for some treasured memories!

    All the best, Chris and Julie

    btw love the new album!

    Dear sir,

    Miss you and your noise. Saw you in a few places over the years, ...ah, decades.

    Last saw you at the DNA Lounge in S.F.. There was a woman quite smitten with you selling 'merch'. She was from Canada. Did you marry?

    Come visit and play!

    Any chance that the Jazz Butcher (solo or with any one of the conspirators) will get back to San Francisco or (less likely but Preferably) Perth, Australia in the near future? Although the CDs get me by it is always nice to see how it all comes together live and in person.

    Just putting my request in!

    I cannot believe the JB is still going strong. Hee hee I have all the original glass records!!!! That shows my age - went to gigs from 1983 when David J joined up. Stopped the gigs after a few years cos I went abroad and just bought the CDs. Thought you had all disbanded! Music still superfantisco - how about a gig in MK cos NPTON a bit seedy for an old gal like me. I forgive you all the humiliation I suffered as an innocent young thing back then! Bloody photographers!

    Site turns a '[at]-remove-' into a '-at-' - which of course looks silly when you read it. So do I get on the mailing list now? Maybe that's a bit ambitious...

    This mailing list banter doesn't work - the email address is just bunkum, I tried changing the '-at-' to an '[at]-remove-', but sheesh, life can be uphill enough without this kind of vertical slalom. Bah, hamburg.

    Does Pat ever play anywhere north of the Northampton? Only ever saw 1 gig, and that was in Dingwall's in 89/90 - good it was, although the crowd was a little aloof; I'd like to see 'em play again though.

    Evening, I'm wanting to resubscribe to the list now that I've fixed the old PC and my old e mail doesn't exist anymore. Good to see those old tribute mp3s up on the site, though a LITTLE embarrassed about my version. Ach I was young(ish) at the time...
    Pat, lost your email address along with everything else on my pc a year or so ago, hope everything is going swimmingly.
    Cheers, Marko

    My band (which just reformed recently) is on the JBC compilation from 2000. Would you mind changing the contact on the site to this? (I'm in the process of getting rid of the pop-ups on the site.)
    Thanks much.

    1991 While I was on a Mormon mission in Alabama. That was a good year. Nothing like listening to the JBC while driving down dark Alabama backroads and avoiding armadillos.

    Merci pour ces années de bonnes melodies! In fact, The JB are to me such a work of inspiration just like the Church (Kilbey, Willson-Piper and Koppes), Pale Fountains! I can definitely say I've enjoyed listening to the words and great guitar ever since the beginning. Thanks!

    am enamoured of your word usage and your love of the streets. My fave is Sharp darts, if this had been 1979 it would be an indie classic instead of getting lost in a dance culture thing. but anyway
    it's nice to see you still keepin' on mit the rockin'my crew helicopter are still scraping away.

    Thank you for all the great music over the
    years. Its bands like you that make a lifetime
    impression. I want and need a signed something
    from the band. I can't find any cds I want,also
    I haven't seen you guys since you played the coach
    house in california where I live. Since all hope of seeing you soon or finding a copy of Distressed
    Gentlefolk is gone I figure I could purchase some-thing cool signed by the band to hang on my wall.
    Thank you, love you guys.
