|The Angry Cats, 1st 4 Track EP Is Out!
We are The Angry Cats, a neo-rockabilly trio based in Paris, and we have just released our debut 4 Tracks EP, available as a CD or on all music platforms. Our original songs, in English, are influenced by both rockabilly and country standards, but also by other music that we have been listening to or playing in our lives. Our sound is therefore very personal, both classic and doped by a multiform and rebellious energy: the one of rock'n'roll since its origins.
Both music and lyrics are enhanced by a contemporary willpower and consciousness: Fan the Flames of Discontent is an enthusiast rock'n'roll manifesto, Olvidado, a Mexicanglish ballad, I Will Not Touch You, a tribute to consent in sexual relationships and Train Kept a-Rollin', a new version of the very famous standard. The four tracks have been recorded in Paris and mixed in London by Tristan Mazire, and mastered in New York by Drew Cappotto (Masterdisk). El Gato designed the artwork of the CD, using a photo from Baldo in addition to the logo of the band that he created with a lot of talent.
Fred Alpi - Vocals, Guitar.
Wanting to satisfy his need for electricity and his desire to sing in English, he realizes an old dream, and creates The Angry Cats in order to be –finally – able to play and meow in a style he has been loving for ever. However, Fred wants to revitalize the style by integrating his own experience into it, acquired during musical adventures that led him since his teens from Punk rock to industrial music through Country music, Texas blues and Rockabilly.
