Top-five obscurity

The Jazz Butcher Conspiracy is a band you'd think would be a fave in Championship Vinyl, the hip record store in John Cusack's film, "High Fidelity." It might even qualify on a Top Five British Pop List, along with the Jesus and Mary Chain, Love and Rockets, the Cure and Echo and the Bunnymen.

Unfortunately, life isn't a movie. Since 1982, the vehicle of singer-songwriter Pat Fish has released 15 albums, most of which have gone unnoticed in the United States. Too bad. The band - a mix of folk-pop guitars, witty lyrics and quirky musical twists (not unlike the aforementioned bands) is worth checking out. Tonight's your chance: The band hits Phantasy Nite Club, 11802 Detroit Ave., Lakewood, at 9. Cover is $10. Call (216) 228-6300.
