Just saw that the Cake Shop show was made available for download. Thanks for being both incredibly talented and impossibly generous

Hey pay
Reading through my brothers diaries and knowing he mentions the tour in the states etc question is do u remember Stephen Harry Harris

dougenglish... - DE - 8Jan2013 5:25 PM
These are great and are all on my iPod etc. Is there any chance of getting any of the live stuff with Kizzy on here? I love that era, but none of the live stuff I have is with him.

Vienna Song

I would love to get a download of the Vienna Song, I've it on vinyl, which is awesome, but digital would be great! Any ideas?

I want to buy Big Questions
sterlingphd... - Sean, California - 15Nov2010 3:25 PM
Hey! I have been trying to buy Big Questions for over a decade. I had a recording of it, that I listened to incessantly, for a whole year while living in Japan in the early 90's. Then I lost it! Please tell me how I can buy another copy!

just another note to say cheers
kevinbrindley... - kev in kent - 22Sep2009 10:39 AM
Dear Sir,
I cant help it but I feel that I have to write again to say thankyou. I have made a cd of the songs available on this site for my car and its great but I would rather pay for an official cd from yourself. Any chance that you might release some more of your material? Maybe a multi cd pack with EVERYTHING!! Interviews, comments, out-takes. Could we not order from this site? Cheers again.

Hey Pat,
I contacted you a while back with a JBC query and you personally invited me to a gig, which was an amazing thing to do - thanks for that. Unfortunately, I couldn't go, I was moving house, but I have always remembered the gesture.
I was wondering how would I get hold of releases these days? I'd rather buy them direct from JBC HQ than put the money into the hands of some squalid E-Bay shop merchant. Know what I mean?

Love ya
TSchimmelschmidt... - Thomas, near Cologne - 21Jul2008 1:22 PM
Hey...last comment dates from january...that still reflects your "popularity"...but I have to say: I'm VERY astonished to see you're still here..and it's a shame you guys do gigs that seldom nowadays...but back in those days, during the 80s & 90s too you were one of the really great underground acts and kinda like a part of the soundtrack for my life at that time. I just discovered this site while "ripping" some old vinyl for my MP3-archive...and have to say: GODD TO SEE YOU'RE STILL HERE :-) Keep on doing whatever you do!

Best regards

i love your music
dkfinancial... - Darcy K, Toronto/Detroit - 22Jan2008 8:22 AM
OMFG I can't believe your music is here. Jazz Butcher had a big impact on me in the 80s/early 90s, and I'd put your music up there, in terms of overall quality, with the Smiths and Style Council. I still have all the LPs, so I don't feel bad about d/l MP3s here. :)

I know it sounds daft but your ironic sense of humour makes me think of Ricky Gervais, either in The Office or Extras. Don't know why.

Have a great day!

My Space -Picture
jamiejack1... - Mike - 25Apr2007 9:01 PM

I just noticed that the snapshot you've chosen for your myspace space was clicked by none other than myself. Great memories of a Chicago boy in NYC to see what was billed as the JBC's swan song. I'm glad it wasn't. Keep on keepin' on...

plasticsoul2001... - PSoul, San Gabriel, CA - 29Oct2006 6:44 AM
Have my eyes gone all wonky or have the videos disappeared? I thought I would drop by this morning and start my day with a little "Girl Go" visual. No go. Oh well, we will make up for it with all of Basement via the iPod. That will get you going more proper than a bowl of wheaties. I just had a visual of The JBC on a Wheaties box. More collectable than the Mary Lou Retton!

In Bath of Bacon
nataliec26... - Sacramento, CA. USofA - 4Sep2005 6:20 PM
The comment "...VERY early eighties..." does not mean that In Bath of Bacon was not a great album! If there is no hope of re-releasing this masterpiece can you please make it available for download? I purchased "Draining the Glass" because there are two songs from this album. Not enough though, I MUST HAVE THEM ALL!!!!!!!!!

good old times
zotenschmied... - ratingen, germany - 3Aug2005 1:59 AM
i haven't come across the jazz butcher for quiet a long time. while surfing around i visited today for the first time.

congratulations, great and informative website.

and the generous audio downloads are marvellous. the music makes me feel good and will accompany we not only for today. later i will get out my old vinyl recordings and have more fun with the jazz butcher and max eider.

Jan aka El Duderino... - Hamburg, Germany - 19Jul2005 3:40 PM
Thanks for this great site! The Jazz Butcher rulez! And of course: Thanks for the great music!

I am so glad I found this!
lt.lucky... - Philadelphia, PA - 26May2005 3:56 PM
Around 1990 I was introduced to the Conspiracy
by my friend iggi. After plying my ears with
the wonders of A Scandal in Bohemia and
Fiscotheque, he informed me of the approaching
presence of the Butcher himself!

We caught up with the Cult of the Basement at (I
believe) the Diamond Club in Toronto, and thanks
to iggi's conversations with David Whittemore,
ended up backstage to greet Mr. Fish! I wish I
could go on about what a fabulous evening it
was, but a certain roadie was in charge of
drinks, and my memory grew dim.

Watching a dozen wind-up monsters roam the stage
was a highlight for me... Thanks so much for the
songs - it has been a while since I've listened
and I was at once transported to a remarkable
place. I enjoyed listening to the recording
from Soundshaft immensely today.

terrible communicator.... - encinitas, USofA - 20May2005 1:13 AM
I'm sorry Pat but men with without women turn into monsters, especially at your ripe old age. I thought I knew what a good band was and what good songwriting was until I heard jbc...if i must admit how i really feel. I suppose my envy has turned into sour jealousy. But please dont take me quite so seriously. I never have. Love ya man. Peace and Love Flowerchild.

Questions for anonymous idiot
The Butcher... - NN1 - 28Apr2005 7:00 AM
What's elitist about promoting free concerts and giving away free music downloads? Could there possibly be an argument for your fucking off with your hippie shit? You know, I'm almost certain that there is...

you... - 27Apr2005 6:42 AM
wow. now that inquiry about you taking checks was a complete joke. I wouldnt send you one anyways. What do I care about the bands you promote in CA? That was'nt my question. And as 80's as your drums and saxophone may sound Im gonna have to say you were a bit ahead of your time. It has'nt even come yet....settle down. Elitist bastards....

great site
joematte... - SF, USofA - 26Apr2005 5:35 PM
This site is a real treasure....all this hard to find music for a mouse click. A true gift! Thanks a million.

cool site
tripecac... - Bellingham, WA - 30Mar2005 2:10 PM
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!

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.

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.

Pat xxx

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?

you... - 14Jul2004 12:23 PM
We Love You AJAX
My lovely AJAX
You make me happy
When skies are grey
You never noticed
How much I love you
Please don't take

styles.last time i saw you live ,i was in seattle years was at the
crocodile,i was with weird people i dont talk to anymore and my best bud
,who sorta plays lead around my stuff,anyway i havent been back to the
states since,cause its hard to get good drugs in seattle,the weed suks

seemed a likeable person ,i listened in on a conversation my friend had
with her before the show.he was trying to organize a show in vancouver,i
am sure she must have mentioned there you are ,a little bit of
bullshit on a friday night,i got nothing better to do ,since i am working
the night shift ,i am the driver at an escort agency,dont ask ,its just the
way it went things are crazy here at the office tonight ,its a fullmoon so
i imagine absolute weirdness gotta go ,so keep up the good work ,i will
always buy youre records at full price and will continue to promote the
jbc at every opportunity,especially at work ,where all the hookers now

at the door.

nine butchers for you, and thanks

A stopping off point in the search for good music
paulcberesford... - London (UK) - 12Jul2003 3:36 PM
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!

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.
