Canada's DEADCATS recently went thru a major line-up change when long-time washtub bassist SCOOTER quit along with drummer LIL' BASTARD (returning to BIG JOHN BATES). Singer/guitarist MICK then moved over to upright bass and vocals & the band has recruited a new drummer (SNAKEBITE STEVE) and a new guitarist MARCEL LAFLEUR (veteran of Canadian punk bands like ARSON, and THE SPITFIRES). So the throbbing gutbucket bass sound is gone, replaced by a heavier 'clickety-clack' upright bass sound.
THE DEADCATS have just released their 5th full-length album (with the old line-up) , this time on FLYING SAUCER. The CD is entitled 'FELINE 500' and features 11 new tracks recorded by the legendary Canadian psychobillies! It uncluded 7 originals, including 'PEGGY SUICIDE' and 4 choice covers, including a 2-song tribute to LINK WRAY ("Rumble' and 'Jack the Ripper') and the METEORS 'Radioactive Kid'
The band hope to make it over to Europe/U.K. and even Japan next summer for some shows!
