Chris Cutler is the cofounder of ReR Records and the drummer for such
News from Babel, Art Bears, EC Nudes, etc.
A RIO artist, an inventor in the audible, conceptual, textual and visual arts,
he has collaborated on numerous projects including releases with Lutz Glandien,
His label and its affiliates release records
"to bring into the UK a whole range of records by groups & musicians
whom we thought excellent & yet who were completely unknown here. Then - as now -
we were only concerned with the quality of the music; & epiphenomenally
with supporting independents- for many of the most interesting groups could
only make their work available by pressing & manufacturing themselves."
Cutler is also an author and artist, and his book File Under Popular (Theoretical and Critcal Writings on Music) (1985/93 Autonomedia, Brooklyn, NY) establishes Cutler as a critical thinker on the culture and logistics of music and the music industry. Many articles by Cutler can be found in the ReR Quarterly Magazines, which is also a good way to become familiar with his meticulous handwriting and excellent pen and ink drawings.
Incidentally, no, he is not Ivor's son... I had previously listed here that he was, a consistent legend circulating Usenet, but "from the horse's mouth" (Chris), no, he is not Ivor's son.
