Ivor Cutler CD's Lower Prices in Europe Print E-mail
For some time we have been concerned about the high prices of Ivor Cutler CD's for fans outside the UK. Some progress has been made in Germany at least, where the two Hoorgi House CD's are now available at a standard price rather than 'import' price. Sorry it has come too late for many of you.
Ivor Cutler album 'PRIVILEGE' to be re-released Print E-mail

The Cutler family's record label Hoorgi House Records is to release Privilege.   First produced for Rough Trade Records in 1983, this collection  has not previously been available on CD. The release date is 19th October 2009.

The first of three records Ivor made for Rough Trade Records, Privilege is unusual in being only one of two albums that Ivor made in collaboration with other artists. It is unique in that there is a second voice to be heard, that of singer Linda Hirst. The album additionally features musicians David Toop and Steve Beresford who play several instruments as well as producing the record.

Previously released as a single, the song Women of the World was inspired by the actions of the women at the Greenham Common Peace Camp. Ivor supported the women in their protest against plans to base nuclear weapons in Berkshire.

A Loathsome Thing Print E-mail

"I loathed it when the WWW thing started. I just don't want for the rest of my life to have anything to do with them.  My brain hurts when I think about them.  I've done quite well without having to get mixed up with all that".  Ivor Cutler, 2002.

Ivor Cutler track on re-released 'Miniatures' collection Print E-mail

Morgan Fisher's 1980 collection 'Miniatures' is now available and includes Ivor's performance of  Brooch Boat  -  part recital, part song  -  with harmonium.

The history of 'Miniatures 1' :  Fisher invited 50 musicians he admired to submit tracks of up to one minute in length.  They responded with unanimous enthusiasm - providing a unique snapshot of the cutting-edge music of the period and achieving legendary status amongst those who cherish such creativity and individuality in the process.

Fast forward two decades and Morgan decided the time was right for a sequel.  Following six years of work, Miniatures 2 brings together over 60 artists  -  bizarre, eccentric, contemplative, rebel-rousing, pioneering, and philosophical.
