To commemorate the 10th birthday of ‘The Butcher of Common Sense’ The Neutrinos held a special anniversary Butcher Day at Dove Street Studios, above Tesco no less, with plenty of noise, creativity (and destruction).
I could quickly feel the special vibe as soon as I arrived and it was a most creative environment, however the evening started with destruction and the sawing of instruments in homage to earlier performances. To the soundrack of The Butcher of Common Sense guitars, cymbals and many other instruments were cut up in time in a MasSaw that was recorded and will presumably surface in some form in the future.
This was followed by many individual covers from the album by the likes of Birds of Hell, Camille Davilla, Leo Thornley, Chris Dowding et al. and concluded with us all being led to the very top floor where the Neutrinos recorded us singing in a gospel style and then noisily and gloriously playing a few tracks, finishing up with two drummers, two bassists, and no less than six guitarists. This felt an extremely special, creative and uniquely Norwich event. “Noise Please”? Yes please!
