The Jazz Butcher are releasing a 4CD box set 'The Wasted Years' compiling their first four albums - ‘Bath Of Bacon’, ‘A Scandal In Bohemia’, ‘Sex And Travel’ and ‘Distressed Gentlefolk’ - which originally came out on Glass Records between 1983-1986.
Formed in 1982 by songwriter/vocalist Pat Fish, The Jazz Butcher released their debut single "Southern Mark Smith" in 1983 followed by a frantic version of Jonathan Richman's "Roadrunner" the following year. The Glass Records catalogue is being re-released by Fire Records to co-incide with this concert. In 1988 the band signed to Alan McGee's Creation Records releasing an album a year with them until 1995.
Tonight is a rare chance to catch this English Cult Phenomenon in concert.
