On the second day of Christmas 3 Loop gave to me…..
…. AN EXCLUSIVE GLIMPSE INTO THE FAMILY CAT ARCHIVES!
Ahead of the re-issue of Tell ‘Em We’re Surfin’, Kev and Fred have been pulling boxes out from under the stairs, finding long lost cassettes and all manner of recordings from their earliest days. And on one of the cassettes was this!
25 years ago, pretty much to the day in December 1989, they recorded this radio session, playing Concrete and Gabriel’s Wings. As Fred says, it’s The Family Cat doing an impression of the third Velvets LP!
EXPLORE THE WORLD OF THE FAMILY CAT!
THE FAMILY CAT – FIVE LIVES LEFT: AN ANTHOLOGY
Sonic Youth once claimed that The Family Cat were their favourite UK rock band, so it is about time that there was a collection of their finest tracks.
Compiled by Paul Frederick (aka Fred) and John Graves this 2CD set tracks the band’s career from the first single, Tom Verlaine, on Bad Girl through to previously unreleased tracks from the abandoned 4th album.
All the band’s singles feature including the classic Steamroller, and Colour Me Grey and River Of Diamonds which feature PJ Harvey on backing vocals.
Together with BBC session tracks, key album tracks and b-sides this 37 track set is a must for any discerning record collection!
Order your copy at the 3 Loop Music store along with an exclusive, classic, re-issued t-shirt!
