The Jazz Butcher: Under the fantasy signBertrand HOULE Montreal (PC)
Pat Fish, aka The Jazz Butcher delights in fantasy. Fantasy in the sense of a work of imagination and a touch of madness. What kind of music compose that Jazz Butcher? Pop sometimes abrasive, often eccentric (a trait character that suits the British well) but nevertheless with finesse.
To get to know the character better, an overseas long distance a telephone interview. But Fish don't delay in diverting the call... as one diverts an oath.
Fish, who hosts a program in Great Britain fortnightly television devoted to music, is not infatuated with the game of questions and answers
Between two puffs drawn on his cigarette and many jokes, he so insisted on chatting about everything and You're welcome. But he still spoke some of his music
First a brief history. Pat Fish works under the name Jazz Butcher for seven years. ‘Bloody Nonsense', his first album distributed in Canada, was a compilation of his three British LPs published between 1983 and 1986. ‘Fishcotheque’, marketed last year, marked the arrival of a new group of companions who have remained res loyal to Fish for ‘Big Planet Scarey Planet”, his recent opus.
As usual, the music of this LP is based on guitars but Fish has taken up sampling to enrich his sound palette.
