Format Info


Ivor Cutler is loved by generations of fans – including Paul McCartney, Billy Connolly and Alex Kapranos – for his unique music and poetic humour. A phenomenal stage presence for 50 years, with a prolific output. Championed by legendary DJ John Peel for whom Cutler recorded 21 sessions. ‘Privilege’ was produced as a vinyl LP for Rough Trade Records in 1983 and has been unavailable for decades. The album is only one of two where Cutler collaborates with other artists. It is unique in that there is a second voice – singer Linda Hirst. Musicians Steve Beresford and David Toop play several instruments and produced the record.
