During a rich and long career, the British musician Pat Fish, he has collaborated with a number of bands and other musicians, but over the years, he remained faithful to his first alter ego, The Jazz Butcher. Under this name for the first time appeared in public in Oxford 1982. Years later, he appeared under the names of The Jazz Butcher Conspiracy and The Jazz Butcher And His Sikkorskis From Hell, but the initial part is always maintained.

Similar to the suffix name of the band, have changed and band members. Through The Jazz Butcher passed many, who now play or have played in bands such as Levitation, The Woodentops, Dead Can Dance, Goldfrapp and so on. Also, The Jazz Butcher, many of today's musicians cited as role models to the beginnings of his career.

The most fruitful part of the career of the band was in the mid-80s to early 90s, where they were a complete alternative to the then neoromantičarima, but despite that they managed to maintain and expand its audience. Their music was then, as now, adorned style that is, one might say, "evergreen", because it is unique and can not be put in a drawer, and is close and forget about it. But those who remember Prefab Sprout, The Go-Betweens or early the Fall, they will remember and the Jazz Butcher.

So on their albums always found all kinds of things, and here it is.

Animals With us fine smoky jazzy sound introduced in the album, which continues a fine pop float down the river (Shame About You) and fine nalsovnom pop Sporić (Last of the Gentleman Adventurers). A touch of French chanson brings Tombe dans les pommes, but more or less in that an alt pop sound we come to slow beachboysovske Shakey, and finally blueserske Solar Core and spooky Saints Prayer, which helped Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3).

Otherwise, "Last Of The Gentleman Adventurers" originally published in 2012, published by the band via Pledge Music campaign, and how to mark the 30th anniversary of the band. All 1,000 copies was quickly sold, but they decided this signature to Fire records closer to your music and a broader range of listeners. In this connection, in addition to this re-release, this year plans to publish two box sets, which called "the Glass Era" and "The Creation Era". The first will be "And Bath Of Bacon ',' A Scandal in Bohemia," "Sex & Travel 'and' Distressed gentlefolk 'while others will include the albums' Fishcoteque ',' Big Planet Scary Planet ',' Condition Blue 'and' Cult Of The Basement '. We look forward to and how!
