Album Review: Waiting For The Love Bus


Jazz Butcher has always struggled with its identity, particularly in the U.S., whereas rave press and U.K.-generated hype has done little to move Yank alt-rock listeners.

Of course, band leader Pat Fish has no interest in being known as spokesman to the so-called alternative generation, preferring to see his slightly warped, mostly beautiful visions of turmoil-driven life as nothing more than great pop music. And he's got a point. Only openminded listeners need board this bus.

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.
