“Who Tore Your Trousers?” by Ivor Cutler - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1961Album Chart of the Decade: 1960s

TJR says

Following his brilliant EP of 1959, “Ivor Cutler Of Y’Hup”, Ivor cut a deal with Decca Records for a full length LP, and “Who Tore Your Trousers?” didn’t disappoint. This time around, the absurd set comprises a mixture of both songs (of which there are six) and stories (of which there are nine). The album is full of major Cutler classics – “A Red Flower” (story), “Are You Alright Jack” (song) and “Steady Job” (story). It’s of no matter to me which form he chooses – his engaging delivery guarantees satisfaction in any event. “Who Tore Your Trousers” was a solid foundation stone in a legendary story…
