Sixteen Years
At a time when there would appear to be no need for it, here they come again. That Purveyor of some of the most heavenly and enduring pop non-hits you're ever likely to hear has regrouped his gang of aging sociopaths and built himself, in the barns and sheds of Northamptonshire, a band.

Max Read : Engineer
Illuminate
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 : Vocals , Engineer
This Is Sumo
This inaugural disk is decidedly un-Butcheresque, with a keyboard-heavy attack of quasi-techno rhythms. Pat was known to dabble in reverb and noise, but the results were moody, melancholy textures, quite unlike the flash of This is Sumo.

    I've seen the band in Alberta, Canada in 1991 and 1992, but don't see those listed here. I think I have a poster and ticket stubs somewhere...

    GREAT song. Pat played it again new year's eve concert. Honestly one of his best songs ever imo, and that's from a fan since 1986! Will it be released in a studio version?

    Much love.
