Ivor Cutler (1923 - 2006)

I only heard of Mr Cutler for the first time about a year ago, after watching a BBC documentary on him. Since then I've seen the programme about 3 or 4 times and each time I'm capativated by his songs/poems and personality. He used his witty, dry humour to make surreal comments and in just a fifty second piece you could tell some much about him. I was shocked and upset when i heard he'd died last friday at the age of 83. My thoughts go out to his friends and family
Here's a few of his musing and Locust St. has also blogged about Mr Cutler's passing
Ivor Cutler - Great Races Of The World - 80 Metre Race
Ivor Cutler - A Mouse Asks A Rat
Ivor Cutler - Good Morning How Are You Shut Up
There's a load more mp3s, where i got these ones here

(editted 09/03/06) check out Little Hits, they have one of my favourite Ivor songs

Hey man - I like your blog - just come across it now. I also posted on Cutler the other day and used the same pic! But now I've got more tunes. If I'd spent some more time doing my research before posting I'd have discovered these tunes, so thanks for the info.

Keep up the good work...
