Post 480 - The Cutters - More Than Fire - Television Mercy

Brisbane band formed in 1987 not to be confused with Melbourne band The Cutters 1983/85. Another one of those Aissie band with not much info on the net or in books, this was their only single from 1988 produced by The Cutters & Jeremy Smallhorn for Mighty Boy Records. Members were Andrew Bartlett – Keyboards, Tim Carmen – drums, John Lloyd - vocals, Ross McKinnon – bass, Phillip Monsour – Guitar. Phil Monsour  went on to other bands such as Carousel, consisting of Chrysalids guitarist Graham Jackson and Cutters bass player Ross Mckinnon. Keyboard player Andrew Barlettn  became a senator and went on to lead the Democrats. Here to download is the single “More Than Fire” b/w “Television Mercy” (MB-20067). The only other recording I know of is from 1990 which was a mini LP called “A Long Way” will have to keep an eye out for that one.
