If you haven't heard any of Catherine Wheel's songs yet, you are missing out. I am listening to them right now and yet I'm still at a loss for words!...... Hmm... How can I describe them?.... Try mixing a lot of fuzzy guitars and sweet harmonies with a dash each of Matthew Sweet, The Smiths, The Connells, and Low. Mash it up well and bake it at 375 for 30 minutes. Serve piping hot and enjoy!!
The CD I was lucky enough to be allowed to borrow is called Adam and Eve, and it kicks ass. So don't be shy, go right out there and listen to them! You must! It is your duty as an American citizen!
This here's the songlist for Adam and Eve:
Phantom of the American Mother
Here Comes the Fat Controller
They are all very good songs. My favorites are Satellite and Thunderbird, although I love all of them.
By no means do I claim to be a Catherine Wheel expert, however. I was just recently introduced to them. (Well, not them personally, but... oh you get the idea.) Kevin officially holds the record for being the biggest Catherine Wheel fan I have ever known, and it's very likely he always will. :) So if there's anything you want to know about Catherine Wheel, email me and I'll ask the guru himself.
OR you can go to their official website (which is really cool, btw) here:
Ok, this is when you go out and listen to them like the fine young music lovers you are! Log on to Napster (while its still around), go to the record store, borrow a CD or tape from a friend, anything...but you must.. MUST hear this band, dammit! And I mean it!
