best kisser is max's only album, although you already are
aware that he hangs out with david j these days.

i had the pleasure just before x-mas of witnessing pat
mimicing the eider bits from hoagy charmichael when they
played a duo set in northampton (pat's hometown).
he almost pulled it off (david ducks..)

the JBC have a decent following in the mighty northwest,
and they always play portland, seattle, and vancouver.
you are not alone, as they say.

> "Jazz Butcher versus Max Eider".

thats a fun one - it has peter lorre and the conspiracy anthem.

for those of you who have joined in the last week...

there is a t-shirt being made - contact ChrisC[at] - soon!

also, here is the "latest" from fish:

so, it sounds as if the "difficult 10th" album is underway.
lord only knows what it will be. i would love to see him
confuse the press with a full-length techno album - but only
if he ditches that yamaha drum machine.
