The Jazz Butcher – Never Give Up: available now

In Loving Memory
Patrick Huntrods (AKA Pat Fish AKA The Jazz Butcher)
(20 December 1957 – 5 October 2021)

The Jazz Butcher was the alias of British singer/songwriter Pat Fish (Patrick Huntrods). It also served as the name of the band. The band was formed in Oxford in 1982 by university students Pat Fish and Max Eider. The line-up of the band changed frequently throughout its history, with Pat Fish being the only constant, and at one point included Bauhaus member David J.

The first Jazz Butcher record, the LP In Bath of Bacon was released almost 40 years ago on the original Glass Records label. Plans were made for a new album on Glass Modern to celebrate this, for release in 2023, but sadly Patrick passed away last October before any real work could be done for it. This recording is all we have. Never Give Up was re-recorded for Pat’s final LP, The Highest In The Land – it’s one of his greatest songs, maybe the greatest. His Hallelujah, if you will.

The B side, Silver Street by Nikki Sudden & Dave Kusworth (Jacobites) was recorded for a forthcoming Glass Modern compilation, of various artists covering Glass artists material from the eighties.

The single is available now on 7″ Blue vinyl, 7″ Grey vinyl and limited edition CD.

Download includes an acoustic version of Never Give Up, recorded by David J on his phone, Sept 15, 2019 in the flat above Faust Studios, Prague CZ.
