Hello.

Just a quick heads up to UK viewers that there will be an hour long doc on the life of Scottish Poet/Singer Ivor Cutler on BBC4 Friday 15th April 2200-2300 (UK Time) followed by highlights of his farewell concert at the RFH 2300-2330.

This has been a Public Service Announcement

Regards Ralphie

I remember when he was Ivor Cutler of Y'Houp (spelling?). For those that don't know of him - deadpan, surreal, inimitable, is his stuff deep and meaningful or another MacArthur Park, or is he the sane one?

I can see all these US people saying "Who the Hell is Ivor Cutler?"
Well, IMHO, A Scottish Treasure.
To Quote.

"A man with a hand like a hammer
Was hanging a portrait of his wife".

"The Earth meets the sky, over the hill
I was told by a sparrow with a lump on his head"

Of course, Guest. It was while I was listening to 'Gruts for Tea' that I first heard about gruts.

(In our family we call the dried cat food 'gruts', so even my cats know the word, without ever having heard, or read, the original.)

If you get a chance - catch Jane Bom-Bane (Queen of the Funky Harmonium) at a show ... I hadn't really heard Ivor Cutler before this evening - so, hadn't understood why people raved that Jane was Ivor Cutler in drag ...

Jane has: "a Gold fish Bowl on [my] head"

"Jane Bom-Bane is either a genius or an example of care in the community gone wrong. Gloriously eccentric.
Hugely entertaining songs and stories. Unmissable.***** "
Edinburgh Evening News

But, the MP3 songs aren't particularly typical (typical!) -

You're seeing things from the parent's point of view.
Back in about 1959 I saw gruts through the ears of a child.

My memory is crap but....was Ivor Cutler in a Beatles film?
...we used to listen over and over again to an LP of Ivor Cutler songs, sayings, poems and tales from a Scots sitting room (?i think!)
Totally loved him!

Not sure if I did or didn't actually see the film once on telly.
Info elsewhere says his character was named Buster Bloodvessel (a name later borrowed by the singer with Bad Manners) and he was the bus driver.
Quack!
