Jesse Hector, Darryl Read, Charlie Harty - get together for a rehearsal to put Crushed Butler back on the scene! Darryl and Jesse (the original members of CB) hadn't played together since 1972. Unfortunately the reunion wasn't to last long, as Jesse pulled out because of work commitments etc. Charlie Harty had worked and recorded with Darryl in the 70's also when Darryl fronted his own group as vocalist and guitarist. CRUSHED BUTLER as everyone knows was the first proto Punk group formed in 1969, and not to dispel anyone ideas that there not! Check out the Crushed Butler Uncrushed album released in 1998 (Dig The Fuzz records), and subsequently in 2007 by Cherry Red Records/RPM. The album of unreleased demo's from 1969 - to 1971 prove that CB were way ahead of everyone at that time. Check out history on: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crushed_... Hectors voice sounded like Johnny Rotten only more powerful, 7 years before he'd even thought about it! The 1969 bombsite photo of CB looks like what the Clash became! The closest to it was the great Ramones - who really were Punk!. .... You never know the reunion could still happen someday - that would blow out some egos and liars!

The footage is a clip from the original film of 40 minutes and a taster to the long awaited Darryl Read Rockumentory - being put together now! (c)Darryl Read Archives all rights reserved
