The Jazz Butcher
(England) Northampton
Unbelievably talented band fronted through many incarnations by Pat Fish (The Jazz Butcher himself.) An Oxford graduate and native of Northampton, Fish had previously released a post-punk single with his band The Tonix. He hooked up with debonair jazzy guitarist Max Eider and quickly set about producing some truly astonishing music.
