Scandal in Bohemia / Sex and Travel two-fer cd
richp20... - Rich E P - 24Dec2001 2:57 PM
Hello butcher fans!

I found an extra copy of the Scandal in Bohemia / Sex and travel two-fer cd. It has some surface scratches but play perfectly (I tried it on several machines) It took me ten years to find the first copy and I know how frustrating it was trying to find it the first time. If anybody has any tasty rare things or excellent quality live recordings I'd love to trade. I could be persuaded to sell it as well.



A stopping off point in the search for good music

As a ph.D researcher of popular music, and fan of the Blue Aeroplanes (who make my task difficult, yet stimulating), I discovered this website. What a gem! A case of 'Music Hall meets Rock'n'Roll'. I'm now in the process of obtaining the back catalogue (all in the name of research I might add!). I may even make my way to Northampton for the Wilson gig in late July if I can find decent accommodation for an overnight stay. I've revisited 'Rough Music' (I won't go into the historical meaning) to listen out for Pat (tremelo) Fish. 'A Map Below' stands out. Hey, but what do I know? I'm just an ageing hippie musician with a studio who writes about music. In the 'sponsored walk of life' I just give out the bottled water!

i imagine absolute weirdness gotta go ,so keep up the good work ,i will

this site is full of cobwebs. . .
you... - Encinitas.Ca USofA - 26Mar2005 5:16 PM
Does anyone ever look at this site anymore? What's really goin' on here? I find it beyond absurd that even the "great" record store we have here(Lou's) has no more than 3 jbc cds to choose from, that of which are reissued compilations. Is it just me or is there really a "conspiracy" going on here and does it make perfect sense if any at all?? Im sick to my stomach. Upload everything you ever recorded to this website Pat. You take checks right?

The only cobwebs are between your ears
The Butcher... - NN1 - 27Mar2005 6:48 PM
This is not a commercial site devoted to flogging twenty-year-old indie records. We do not take checks or anything else.

This is a site about music and what I (a minor semi-pro musician) am doing now. If you condescend to look at the main page, you will find that to be spending most all my time promoting live music (including artists from your home State), composing and performing. Not in Encinitas, Ca, though, as I have no wish to be disappeared by your thought police.

If you want to relive the eighties, there are plenty of bands around right now who will be only too happy to help. Try the Departure, or if you like it really wooshti, The Bravery.
Now fuck off.

Sometimes the trolls and fools who have secured access to the library computer reveal themselves and give us all a quaint laugh.

The comments made about the site being full of cobwebs reveal what is really going on here. Those of us who enjoy the music are scrounging everywhere to find it/buy it/save it/archive it/ and listen to it. You can go on Ebay, GEMM, or wherever you like and there is incredible demand and competition for the music that was made.

The music is the thing. Get the songs, get the vinyl, get it all and listen to it. The Butcher made it, someone gave him beer money for it, they slapped it into the odd shop in miserable small quantities, and now we happily pay for it when someone decides to auction it off. Don't crap all over him because of that. Nostalgia? Nah. Appreciation? Yes. A real fan is appreciative. This real fan wishes he could go to the shows.

If the Butcher wants to put out something new, we'll get that too and celebrate. All this crap about how your "great" record store doesn't have JBC stuff proves your own ignorance--we swept in years ago like ninjas and bought it all up while you were shoving REO Speedwagon down your pants.

cool site

This is a great site for long-time fans. I love all the free mp3s and song notes. It makes me feel like the site and band are more focused on creation than business.

That said, I'm curious how it's doing, business-wise. Has it paid for itself? How would you measure site-derived earnings?

What if 90% of the site's visitors already own most or all of the JBC albums? How can the site make money off of them (us) in order to support itself? Through gig advertisements? Or is the site dependent upon sales from the (say) 10% of visitors who are JBC newbies?

It's a great site, fan-wise. I love it! I'm just curious how effective it is business-wise. It'd be great to find out if (and how) it pays off in both areas...

Even if it doesn't, it's still awesome, and I'm grateful to everyone involved in creating and maintaining it!

(a loyal JBC fan since 1986)
