X Ray Cat Trio & Harriet Hyde - Bubblegum EP
7" Heavy Weight 70g Pink Vinyl
The latest slice from Leeds trash surf punks, X Ray Cat Trio, sees a guest appearance from Nico's ex-bandmate, Harriet Hyde (Black Moth).
The two of them had always bonded over an infatuation with bittersweet 50s pop and doo-wop crooners from The Ronettes to The Ramones.
Years ago they vowed to let loose those doe-eyed, lovelorn sensibilities and sure enough, here are four unabashedly achy-breaky rock’n’roll tracks. Scuzzy yet-saccharine, in the vein of Shannon and the Clams and Dan Sartain, these are an offering to the ghosts of our teenage hearts- the part of us that will forever be trapped in high school, haunting the corridors with the faintest whiff of cigarettes and candy. Swoon!
1. Only One
The 4 Track EP is available on Heavy 70g pink 7” Vinyl from Buzzards Claw Records.
