The Jazz Butcher RIP

Postby The Prof » 07 Oct 2021, 10:26

Pat Fish aka The Jazz Butcher was a sometime presenter of Transmission, a late night indie show from the 1990s, but mostly known as the voice behind The Jazz Butcher or occasionally The Jazz Butcher Conspiracy.
20+ LP going back to the early 80s with many of them on Creation.

This comes as a bit of a shock as I only finally got to see him live last month in Preston.

There’s not many actual videos so here’s a cartoon illustration to 'Southern Mark Smith'.

And a nice obituary from Mike Condo on Louder Than War

RIP Pat Fish.

If we get as far as a top 100, I'd certainly consider it

Nicely captured John.

I first heard The Jazz Butcher's music in the mid-80s via some cassettes one of my UK cousins left me when he visited, the cassettes are long gone but I must seek out some of the music again.

RIP...
