In the early ‘80s, Dave Barker was checking master vinyl copies of classical recordings for glitches – they don't make jobs like that anymore. In his spare time he discovered innovative souls struggling to make music and welcomed them to his Glass Records label. The roll call included Teenage Fanclub, Spacemen 3, The Pastels and The Jazz Butcher. The ‘Butcher' delivered a gaggle of albums and many 45s for Glass from 1983 to 1986. 1983 debut In Bath Of Bacon was an experiment in sound, conjoining that Ronco platter to Todd Rundgren, a guitar from Wes Montgomery's cupboard and mentions of imaginary monsters set to some funky chops. It's pop meets bluesy scat with plenty of deadpan irony – a theme that will recur.

"The Jazz Butcher was always something of a unique vehicle, a sort of musical dune buggy - it interweaves the influence of The Velvet Underground and Syd Barrett with the new wave energies of the day and leaves us all richer for looking in." - Pete Kember (Spacemen 3)
