The Jazz Butcher


You don't have to be afraid
You don't have to let the people get you down

No I
I do believe there's something you could do
Oh I
Believe the things we once believed
Think maybe that you could do it too


We could be ghosts. And fly down stairways
We could be ghosts. And disappear
We could be ghosts. And talk to animals
We could be ghosts. And out of here

Evolution's getting on my nerves

Top mis-hear by Gerald Langley: "Darwin, evolution's getting on my nerves"
And Darling
I want to know the purpose each thing serves

Then I
Remember things from countless of years ago
Yes I
Believe the things we once believed
And I believe that you already know

We could be ghosts. And be fantastic
We could be ghosts. And disappear
We could be ghosts. And be unimaginable
We could be ghosts. Forever dear

Then a glass breaks
Everybody's petrified - that's natural
I know you meant no harm
But sometimes these days it's a problem
When you haven't done this much
They're so easily alarmed

Oh I
I'm sure their kind of life must have its own rewards
Oh oh oh I
I'm sure it's only fear that makes them act the way they do towards us
Who cares?


We could be ghosts. No one can hurt us
We could be ghosts, by atmospheres.
We could be ghosts. And dance on pianos
We could be ghosts. Forever, dear.

Waiting For The Love Bus
There's a clean, simple sound to a lot of this that Condition Blue detractors might appreciate. I'm ten years older now than when I made Bath, and right now, after all that morbid stuff, it only really feels like about three. There's rockin' shit and there's a big ballad or two and some weird little pop songs and a nice family sing-along about penguins. I hope you like it.

¬°Excellent! The Violent Years
Millions of years ago, dinosaurs ruled the Earth. Today the Galileo Space Probe orbits mighty planet Jupiter. The Jazz Butcher Conspiracy first appeared in June 1982 in the back room of the Black Lion in Northampton. They finally drank the bar dry in a small town in in Mallorca on the 20th August 1996
