Distressed Gentlefolk

WNEKForever

Go back to this record all the time. An ATF from college days and great band to see live. I saw them twice and the songs from this record usually got the audience to sing-a-long! I always believe Pat Fish to be a great songwriter. He also seem to have fun playing live too! People don't always catch his sense of humor and other records have great songs too but this was the most consistent. Download it then go to Draining the Glass compilation! Yes, where is Fishcotheque!

The Jazz Butcher's Masterpiece

While Pat calls this the sound of a band that was "coming to bits", to me this is the sound of a band unafraid to follow its muse...even if that muse was somewhat scattered. Bits of country, swing and jazz infuse the album with an exotic tinge and makes it timeless: other than being awash in reverb, there is nothing here that says "1986." Sadly, what makes this album great is what also pushed it outside of their core college radio audience. They would later find their way back, but never made an album this adventurous or lovely again. Yes, there's some goofy stuff here, but still plenty to love even if you refuse point-blank to understand their jokes.

This is the best JBC album and easily in my top 10 all time favs. Hilarious and melodic. It would be even better here if they included the amazing CD bonus track of South America. Get this first and then if you like it get everything you can get your hands on, the next best album isn't available here but is a must have: Fishcoteque

His Best ...

LOVE this record. And I mean record -- THANK YOU eMusic. This was only on vinyl or really expensive ($75) import CD. Pat Fish's elegant wit mixes with some very good playing and a sparse (but not spartan) open sound to nail some real winners -- "Falling in Love," "Hungarian Folk Song," "Still in the Kitchen," "Who Loves You Now?" and "Angels" all winners. "Our Domestic Animal" a sarcastic paean to cat owners. Overall has always been my favorite JB anything, so THANK YOU eMusic for finally having it.
