  • Written-By – Steve Skinner


The Cuts Show came out of a touring stage show of same name, performed by Counteract, a Gulbenkian Trust funded small scale nationally touring arts organisation. The show toured for about eighteen months in three different versions, performing in a wide range of venues - student unions, conferences, arts and theatre venues, pubs, community centres and in one case at an over night student sit in of their local education offices (Sheffield). As it developed it included sketches/got tighter. The material was written mostly by Steve Skinner. Chris Reason wrote three or four numbers and someone called Dave wrote some words eg 'Cash Flow Blues'. Music performed and arrangements worked out by the CounterAct gang plus other people who helped with vocals etc. Steve Skinner helped to produce the album.

“This L.P. is based on 'The Cuts Show' by CounterAct. The show has been touring all over Britain playing to Anti-Cuts campaigns, trade unions and students. This show is a campaigning show and although a campaigning L.P. is, as yet, unheard of we hope that people do not just listen but also actively take part on both the local and the national level in the opposition to the cutbacks."
