It began as a wintertime whim back in 2000: record 3 yuletide tunes, arrangements inspired by a fab 60's vibe. The Butties released the CD "3" the following year and things started to snowball. 5 years later, final production is complete! "12 Greatest Carols" is a collection of (you guessed it) a dozen Christmas carols, including the Butties' version of "Joy to the World" heard on the movie soundtrack of "Christmas with the Kranks" and on the NBC sitcom "Scrubs."
But what is the deal with the name?
For those unfamiliar with British slang, a "Buttie" is a fairly unhealthy sandwich (apparently very popular among a certain Merseyside group) consisting of lots of butter, toasted bread and one other sweet or salty or starchy ingredient (bacon or jam or cheese or chips, etc.). Besides this screamingly obvious reference, the word "Butties" happens to look pretty nice on a bass drum (what with the "B" and the "T" in the right place, don't you know).
The band started as a fun side project for Paul, Sam, Mark and Robbo when they first played together as students at Syracuse University in 1983. In other words, it was a great way to avoid studying. A few years after they all left school and went their separate ways, the lads discovered there were plenty of pressing responsibilities in the real world, too! Despite living in different cities thousands of miles apart, they made arrangements to begin playing again. Nowadays the Butties manage to regroup at least a couple times a year, usually playing marathon shows that run from 4-6 hours.
Cheers from the Butties to you.
