Postcard from Mr Ivor Cutler

A postcard sent on 21 February, 1992, by the absurdist poet, lapsed teacher, anti-noise campaigner, cyclist, oddball genius Ivor Cutler. It concerns the Scottish poet John Burnside.

  1. We have a few postcards and letters we treasure from Ivor who must have been a prolific correspondent despite telling everyone he didnt want to be bothered with such things! We met him in 1991 and he bought some tea leaf badges from my partner Hazel Jones whose small exhibition he saw at the Festival Hall which he used to frequent quite lot- signing books in the bookshop there. Much to our delight he phoned us up and invited us to tea which we accepted ofcourse. Tea with one of our heroes- that doesnt happen often! I wrote about it on my blog which you can find HERE.
