1000 copies, 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 continues to consistently makes music that stops people in their tracks providing poignant social commentary for a bedraggled nation. Cult Of The Basement (1990) sees them withdrawing very much into their own mad little world, something’s happening here. There’s still jangle but it’s wrestling with accordions. It’s “lean, jazz and cabaret-style pop gems” claimed All Music. “A disconcertingly fine magnum opus which, if it emanated from a more in-vogue source, would currently be having its maverick genius analysed to death” the Melody Maker added. “Unmistakably the work of the Butcher” Louder Than War // Remastered & Reissued for the first time on Vinyl, in it’s 30th Anniversary year, for Record Store Day 2020.
