A few words with The Cutler whose album, The Best Things In Life Aren’t Things, is out on Sept 10th 2012.
FNS: Why did you pick these 3 Songs?
TC: The current track (from our 3rd Cutler, as yet unreleased, lp) came back from mastering plant last week so it seemed fitting. And the classic Burt Bacharach is a tune that struck a chord with us in our uber youth and has stood the test of time. Pork is Mr Zeitgeist so he picked the Seabright tune from this week…
FNS: You have been picked to represent the human race in a meeting with a species visiting from another planet. The visitor wants you to play a couple of tracks to show a what you’ve been up to over the years. What would those tracks be?
TC. Cutler tracks would be Scimitar from first lp and 200 Pharaohs, 6 Billion Slaves from the latest. Human race representation would see us plump for “Welcome To The Machine” – Pink Floyd and “Apollo” – Brain Eno.
FNS: What advice would you give to young ‘uns thinking about starting a label and releasing their own music?
TC: Don’t. The need for labels is diminishing yearly. The traditional gatekeepers of yesteryear belong to a hierarchical structure thats is becoming obsolete. Many publishing companies are on last legs – not only in music, but in print and film. Artists dealing direct with fans/ listeners seems the only viable model worth moving towards. But it will take time.
