The Cult Begins Here
armenianthunder | los angeles | 09/24/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Although the Butcher had put out several critically hailed recordings, by the time I first heard him it was by virtue of "Cult of the Basement," and it remains my favorite. Everything that the JBC does well they do perfectly here: catchy, simple Lou-Reed-ish pop with touches of swirly shoegaze guitar, Kinks-style British country, all held together by Pat Fish's sly and dry Oxford-bred wit. The hilarious and infectious "She's On Drugs," with its driving slide guitar hook and snappy chorus, gets my vote for the best Jazz Butcher tune period, while the dreamy "Pineapple Tuesday" and "Girl Go," the biting "Daycare Nation," and the Dick Dale-styled instrumental "The Basement" are among an album full of highlights. An essential, and one of the many criminally overlooked albums of the 1990's "alternative rock" age."
