A snap of Roar Sørensen and I just before, the charity do for the Andre Marshall benefit, at the Blue Lagoon in the Pattaya village, Siam, on Sunday 10th 2013. Roar is the boss there and made the event a real winner - despite rain, and no outside promotion - other than word of mouth - a cool cat indeed to work with! Rose, Marshall and I have played many Sunday concerts there - to great Norwegian and Swedish audiences! We raised 25, 000 baht on that one! Alongside with Thomas Rossetti and all the other cool musicians - in Siam!
We had a Rock 'n' Roll blast at the benefit concert tonight for Andre Marshall at Leo Blues Bar Pattaya. I had two very cool players with me - Graham Peter Sears bass, and the great John Slattery on drums! We raised - 32, 000 baht.Thomas Rossetti - got things organized well - and certainly - took care of my Biz, as did my old friend Leo himself! Photo Tom Rosseti

The footage is a clip from the original film of 40 minutes and a taster to the long awaited Darryl Read Rockumentory - being put together now!
Jesse Hector, Darryl Read, Charlie Harty - get together for a rehearsal to put Crushed Butler back on the scene! Darryl and Jesse (the original members of CB), hadn't played together since 1972. Unfortunately the reunion wasn't to last long, as Jesse pulled out because of work commitments etc. Charlie Harty had worked and recorded with Darryl in the 70's also when Darryl fronted his own group as vocalist and guitarist. CRUSHED BUTLER as everyone knows was the first proto Punk group formed in 1969, and not to dispel anyone ideas that there not! Check out the Crushed Butler Uncrushed album released in 1998 (Dig The Fuzz records), and subsequently in 2007 by Cherry Red Records/RPM. The album of unreleased demo's from 1969 - to 1971 prove that CB were way ahead of everyone at that time. Check out history on: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crushed_Butler Hectors voice sounded like Johnny Rotten only more powerful, 7 years before he'd even thought about it! The 1969 bombsite photo of CB looks like what the Clash became! The closest to it was the great Ramones - who really were Punk!. .... You never know the reunion could still happen someday - that would blow out some egos and liars!

CRUSHED BUTLER "Uncrushed" LP
RHB - 110
Many bands are called legendary, few are. Among them are Crushed Butler whose assualt on the UK prog rock scene in 69-70 layed out the dynamics that were to follow in the best punk, glam and pub rock records of the seventies. From the anthemic R&B classic "High School Dropout", to the pure punk mayhem of "It's My Life" and "Factory Grime" and the heavy Sabbath-esque psych of "Love Is All Around Me" this has long been a record deserving of wider accessibility. Radio Heartbeat Records is pleased to make that happen. The RHB LP edition adds a 2nd version of "High School Dropout" and an previously unreleased instrumental recording, "Let It Ring" to the 6 tracks first pressed on the Dig The Fuzz 10" in the 90s to make this the definitive vinyl release that contains the band's complete surviving recordings. RHB
There is a special press kit
version available (limited to 75 copies)
which contains bonus Crushed Butler press photos, reprinted emphera,
Crushed Butler comic and badge.

Darryl/Ray/Robby Paris July 3rd 2007 Photo: ©Marion Schult 2007
Darryl visited Ray & Robby at their Riders On The Storm concert at Le Grand Rex in Paris. Darryl said: "The concert was fucking great! And I think it was the best I ever saw Ray and Robby play - the keys sounded like thunder with new epic chops; and Robby's impromptu version of 'Spanish Caravan' was the best I'd ever seen him play -- ROTS blew the stage apart that night!" Ray and Darryl found time to toast their poetry album BLEEDING PARADISE (due for its USA release), with photographer Marion Schult backstage after the concert.
Darryl also checked in to see his poetry reading friends Alex and the Scorpywag gang at 'La Renaissance' amongst loads of other DOORS fans: check news for more pics.

Easter 2007 --- The Trompete Club Review
Darryl Reads CD-Veröffentlichungen "Shaved", "Book of the dead", "Collectomatic", "Freshly Dug" unter besonderer Mitwirkung von the Doors Keyboarder Ray Manzarek und auch die wiederholte Zusammenarbeit von Manzarek und Read auf dem gerade erschienen Album "Bleeding Paradise" fanden große Beachtung unter Read Fans, aber auch the Doors-Fans haben daran ihre Freude. Die hervorragenden Musiker um Darryl haben es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht, Musik und Lyrik ein neues Leben einzuhauchen und die Erinnerung, an den wahren Beat-Spirit mit einer beeindruckenden Performance wach zu halten. Darryl Read, selbst Absolvent der Schauspielschule, gewann bereits mit vierzehn Jahren einen Award in Kalifornien. Und so wundert man sich auch nicht, wenn er hin und wieder selbst als Regisseur und Schauspieler in Eigenproduktionen agiert, so zum Beispiel für den Film, "Remember a Day" oder das aktuelle Projekt in Spanien unter Mitwirkung von Ben Becker. Unter anderem veröffentlichte Darryl Read kürzlich seine Biografie sowie seinen Gedichtband Volume 1, beides in der Undergroundszene wahnsinnig gefragt und bereits fast ausverkauft …
SHOTGUN REVIEWS http://www.shotgunreviews.com/
2007 by Michael Sutton
Categories: The Big Question (Interviews), Music, Mike Sutton
Written by Michael Sutton
For Ray Manzarek, the Beat goes on.
In fact, the Beat has never stopped. Even after Jim Morrison’s shocking death in 1971 and the Doors’ subsequent break-up two years later, the group’s legendary keyboardist has never faded from the rock & roll scene. Whether it’s producing post-punk pioneers such as X and Echo & the Bunnymen or resurrecting the Doors with a new frontman, Manzarek continues to mesmerize and move new generations of listeners with his atmospheric, jazz-inflected playing.
One of the most intriguing projects that Manzarek has involved himself with lately is a collaboration with late ’60s garage rock survivor Darryl Read, frontman for Britain’s first punk band Crushed Butler. Combining Read’s existentialist Beat poetry with Manzarek’s cinematic keyboards, the two create fevered art on Bleeding Paradise, their third team-up.
In an interview conducted on March 14, Manzarek explained his long fascination with the Beat Generation and how it led to the formation of the Doors and his creative partnership with Read.
Manzarek has known Read for 20 years. According to Manzarek, what attracted him to Read’s poetry was that “it’s got a street credibility, an instant punch in the nose,” he said. “It’s now, it’s today, and yet it’s got its roots firmly set in the Beat Generation.”
It was the work of the Beat Generation, the groundbreaking, spontaneous, and in-your-face words of underground icons such as Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac, that opened the Doors for Manzarek. Manzarek revealed that the writing of the Beats was “the reason the Doors came together in the first place, an attempt to wed poetry and rock & roll, the same way that the Beats had wed poetry and jazz.”
In some ways, Manzarek’s work with Read unites both approaches as Read’s delivery booms with punk intensity while Manzarek’s lushly crafted keyboards have the playful energy of jazz.
To Be Continued

OUT WORLD WIDE NOW!
Special Spanish pre-release - limited 12 inch vinyl - for Spain only: out from the 10th of December on Deep Bass Records, and worldwide - thereafter in January 2006. (Available from the merchandise section and from: www.deepbassrecords.com ).
Darryl's collaboration with Spanish underground house group - The Doctors: gets a vinyl release under a new genre of Poet House, featuring 3 mixes of Darryl's poem 'Maybe It's Good If You Look At It Twice' (Lyrics) performed vocally by Darryl with music written and performed by The Doctors.
Darryl said: "I am experimenting in all avenues and new outlets for poetry, to get it heard! The Doctors have done a cool job on this one, and the middle music-break of the track is a groove - sounding like: Pete Townshend was let loose in the House Studio on amphetamines, and is about to break up a Rickenbacker whilst feeding-back distorted guitar riffs!"

A first* in Darryl's career - two records released on the same day by two separate labels: 'Uncrushed' Crushed Butler (record of the month - review) - the long awaited - first punks 1969 record (sold out on vinyl) gets a UK CD release from RPM Records/Cherry Red. Freshly Dug gets a UK release with again brand new packaging, on Lemon Records/Cherry Red: who also have two other works of Ray's.
September is also Darryl's birth month. Darryl said: "I am glad these two items are getting around, and I hope someone sends one to the Record Collector; because if we get another severe slagging critically from them; like we did when Freshly Dug and Remember A Day (the film) first came out - then these two new re-issues are bound to be a success all over again!" Crushed Butler reviews. Freshly Dug reviews.

May 25th 2005
Darryl, recently collaborated and recorded with Spanish House group - The Doctors, on a new track 'Maybe It's Good If You Look At It Twice' which features Darryl's poetry of the same title. The 12inch vinyl platter will be released later this year on Deep Bass Records, in a new genre called 'Poet House'.
Darryl said: "The whole thing happened after jamming for kicks one night in Spain with The Doctors; an improvised poem live at their gig - the next day, I saw Jorge Pruess who runs Deep Bass Records, and he asked me if I would be interested in recording a track as Darryl Read with The Doctors. I told Jorge that I would - as any outlet for poetry is a good one!"
