I just heard today that surrealist Scottish poet and musician Ivor Cutler died last week. His records were a constant source of entertainment and amusement for me ever since I discovered his work on Morgan Fisher’s Miniatures LP in the 1980s.
I loved his bizarre perspective on life – how many other performers were also members of the Noise Abatement Society? I was fortunate to see him perform in person on two occasions, but had hoped to see him one more time. Bugger.
If you like your humour surreal and nonsensical, I urge you to check out his work.
