1000 copies worldwide, black Vinyl. So, it’s the end of the ‘80s, you’re on Creation Records. You’ve got a justifiable reputation for clever lyrics, witticisms, one-liners, melancholy, irony, conceptualisation and such – plus a penchant to write pop songs.
The Jazz Butcher is in the process of slowly whittling down to one, but Pat Fish here continues to consistently makes music that stops people in their tracks providing poignant social commentary for a bedraggled nation. Big Planet, Scarey Planet (1989) “This was a real "band" album by a touring unit which had become really quite ferocious.” Pat Fish. The sound is bigger, symphonic – all swirling guitars behind the vitriol and conjecture; a post-Smithsian screenplay for Coronation Street. Sounds reckoned it was a “Vicious mismatch of outrage, black humour and sentiment.” And Mick Mercer in the Melody Maker said: “Good old Butch – bringing you tomorrow’s shit today.” He liked that. Perfect. Remastered & Reissued for the First Time on Vinyl for Record Store Day.
