Ivor Cutler Life

Ivor Cutler (born Isadore Cutler, 1923 – March 3, 2006) was a Scottish poet, songwriter, and humorist.

He became well-known for his regular appearances on BBC radio and, in particular, his numerous sessions recorded for John Peel's influential late night radio show (BBC Radio 1) and later for Andy Kershaw's show.

In 1967, he appeared in the Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour film and on Neil Innes' television shows.

Cutler also wrote books for children and adults, served as a tutor at A.J.Neill's Summerhill School, and spent 30 years in London's inner-city schools.

On his radio show, Andy Kershaw told Andy Kershaw that he had taught private poetry lessons to people. Cutler would often accompany himself on a harmonium in live performances.

Phyllis King appears on several of his albums, and for many years was a part of his shows.

She used to read small words but she also read a few short stories.

Both of them appeared in King Cutler, a BBC radio show in which they performed their content both singly and together.

Cutler has worked with pianist Neil Ardley and singer Robert Wyatt.

Early life

Ivor Cutler was born in Govan, Glasgow, in 1923 into a middle-class Jewish family of Eastern European descent. Jack Moris Cutler, his father, was a draper and jeweler. "Without that I would not have been as screwed up as I am and therefore not as inventive," he recalled when his younger brother was born. He was educated at the Shawlands Academy. Cutler was evacuated to Annan in 1939. He joined the Royal Air Force as a navigator in 1942 but was soon grounded for "dreaminess" and spent as a storeman. He moved from London, where he was employed by the Inner London Education Authority to teach music, dance, drama, and poetry to 7- to 11-year-olds. Cutler's deeply held beliefs on humanity meant he hated corporal punishment and resigned from a teaching job in the 1950s, he stripped down his tawse and handed the lessons to the class.


Ivor Cutler Career

Musical career

Cutler began writing songs and poems in the late 1950s, making the first of many appearances on BBC radio on the Home Service, where he appeared on the Monday Night at Home program on 38 occasions between 1959 and 1963. He gained notoriety playing piano or harmonium, and this success culminated in the introduction of a line of albums, beginning with 1959's Ivor Cutler of Y'Hup EP. Cutler appeared in the pop musical film It's All Over Town in 1964 and went on to make appearances on the BBC's programs throughout the 1960s, and Paul McCartney, who encouraged Cutler to appear in The Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour film, noticed him. Cutler plays wannabe courier Buster Bloodvessel, who is immediately attracted to Aunt Jessie of Ringo Starr. Cutler's album Ludo (1967), directed by George Martin and credited to the Ivor Cutler Trio, made up of Cutler with bassist Gill Lyons and drummer Trevor Tomkins, whose appearances came after this film role. Cutler's album, which takes inspiration from trad jazz and boogie-woogie, sees him playing the piano as well as his standard harmonium, and is regarded as the most traditionally musical of all his recordings. Cutler continued to perform on BBC radio, recording the first of his sessions for John Peel in 1969. Cutler's biography on Peel's shows would introduce him to successive generations of followers, and Cutler said, "Thanks to Peel, I gained a whole new audience, to the awe of my older fans, who find themselves among 16-to-35s in theaters and wonder where they came from."

Cutler's 1974-1974 album A Symphony of Amaranths (1971), and former Soft Machine drummer Robert Wyatt begged Cutler to play harmonium and sing on two of the tracks on his album Rock Bottom (1974). Cutler's relationship with Wyatt resulted in his signing of his label Virgin Records, for whom Cutler released three LPs in the mid-1970s: Dandruff (1974), Velvet Donkey (1975) and Jammy Smears (1976). Each of these discs intersperses Cutler's poems and songs with readings by his performing companion Phyllis King. "Go and Sit on the Grass," Wyatt's song "Go and Sit on the Grass" would be covered later.

Cutler's session for John Peel triggered the publication of numerous episodes of his Life in a Scotch Sitting Room collection, culminating in the 1978 LP Life in a Scotch Sitting Room. Vol. The two books, which Cutler refers to tales from his childhood in an environment of exaggerated Scottishness, are regarded as a particularly autobiographical work. Cutler also made the book, which was published in 1984 with illustrations by Martin Honeysett.

Cutler also contributed the song "Brooch Boat" to the cult 1980 album Miniatures, which was mainly made of one-minute long clips. Rough Trade Records issued three LPs in the 1980s: Prince Ivor (1983), Gruts (1986), and Gruts (1986). During the 1980s, Cutler also released "Women of the World," a record with Linda Hirst that was also released on the label. Creation Records released two new volumes of poetry and spoken word art in the 1990s: A Wet Handle (1997) and A Flat Man (1998).
