ABOUT PRIVILEGE

 

The first of three albums Ivor Cutler 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.

 

Some of Ivor's records are quite dark and reflect the deep depressions he suffered. This album, however, is lighter and playful. It includes humorous rollicking songs such as Tomato Brain, Silent "S", and Pussy On The Mat.

 

This collection includes 'Women of the World' - possibly the only overtly political song in Ivor's recorded repertoire.

 

The CD comes with a booklet which includes notes by all the artists who perform on the album: Linda Hirst, David Toop and Steve Beresford. Cutler fans will be interested to read these fascinating recollections about the experience of working with him.

 

ABOUT IVOR CUTLER

 

"The world needs Ivor Cutler in order to think differently"

     Billy Connolly in Looking for Truth with a Pin

 

"But I always loved the surreal edge to it. I think there's a distracting absurdity about Cutler's music because it deflects you slightly from the fact that he's often very sharp-witted; there are some very pointed observations within his songs."

     Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand in Ivor My Inspiration
