Well good grief!

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Gina's quite correct, I've now moved into music reviews, interviews and articles as a semi-professional hobby. Mainly rock, punk, folk, alternative...basically the strange, bizarre, alternative and inspired by the world of horror films, and that's only a small proportion of them.

I was originally a mere contributor for this 'zine, but since then, I've been given the reins and we're busier than ever. A feature a week about the very brunt of the obscure and sometimes obscene.

Michal is a contributor too, of course. He's also my official proof reader. The Bob to my Joker. My number one guy.


I realise my name is not a positive one here. I have no doubt you talk about me behind my oh-so-shapely yet unattractive rear. I similarly am well aware you all believe me to be a viciously negative person.
Ladies and gentlemen, not a single sour word places upon this Webzine and by all accounts, musicians believe me to be a fair, influential and pleasant writer.

If you are a member of an independent group, or you know of an independent group, or even if you simply know of a group, do not hesitate to send in tracks, songs, sounds, to jordan@catonthewall.net - I am always listening.
Similarly, if you believe yourself to be of sufficient capability, I will always accept submissions. Do not delay in sending your own thoughts, words and discussions upon subjects of your pleasing - if it relates to music, culture, film, it is relevant, and it is something I shall consider.


Over the past few months I have interviewed people as diverse as horror punk bands from the stinking boroughs of Cardiff, to the influential, chart topping musician behind the soundtrack to The Snowman and the Snowdog. We are dedicated to all and sundry that we simply believe to deserve recognition - to all we believe have a subject, a discussion, a belief to bring to the grand table that is the digital music industry.

Don't hesitate to give us a look - we're not for profit, we don't get a single penny from views or pageloads. Look at the musicians, the artists, the people whom talk to us every week - those whom truly have something I, and many others, see as great.

That is all, ladies and gentlemen. Farewell!

Like horror? Of course you do. Like fun music? Course you do. Like sexy vocals? That's a silly question. Like really, really catchy riffs, choruses and solos?

This is one of the funniest interviews I've ever done - for one of the most impressive debuts I've heard. It has a song about Bill Murray. It's massively inspired by the world of horror. Custard creams are involved.

Keep an eye on Trioxin Cherry. They're quite lovely.

Oh GENE.

I neglected this thread. I SO SORRY.

Last week we spoke to a very lovely lady from Italian Pop-punk group We Are Us
http://catonthewall.net/?p=2727

And this morning I've published our double-feature (review and interview) with Jon McClure of Electro-music legends Reverend and the Makers. This band appear regularly in the chart, have performed at Glastonbury and have acted as warm-ups for Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Oasis!

This week we spoke to the devilishly bebowlered Nasso of Bulgarian Anti-punk lovelies, Babyface Clan.

http://catonthewall.net/?p=2753

"You’re Not Wearing Your Tie brings to mind the idea of a civilised man, poetic, intelligent, perhaps a writer, visiting a gypsy fairground one mild spring morning, only to eat some laced Candy Floss. The gypsies have taken him in, and are now bringing him to a life of experimental sex, drugs and alcohol, not specifically in that order. As it all continues, our friend becomes more violent, confused, scared, but full of the faux joys that this strange new world is providing him..."

Enjoy.

My latest review is dubbed my many to be my best yet. I don't know if that's saying much but everybody seems to believe it's very funny and informative. Which works for me...

My very favourite Goth, Aurelio Voltaire, has released a full on Goth-rock album - and it's possibly one of the best hard rock albums, period, that I've heard in years, starring himself, Ray Toro of My Chemical Romance, Knox Chandler of Depeche Mode and Souxie and the Banshees...and the list goes on.

Read on for amusing, odd metaphors and jokes about black, viscous, sticky liquids.

Enjoy!

"Yes! It's the first Raised by Bats review and will likely be the BEST! A truly fun read!"

Today's interview is with the bewitchingly talented Juliette Commagere - a really personal, passionate electronic musician who's been in the UK recently. Naturally we just had to track her down!

I forgot about you lot again. I'm so mean and hurtful...

On March the 14th, we got the duty of premièring a lovely music video - WRECK N ROLLIN:
http://catonthewall.net/?p=2800

On the 23rd, we had an interview with Portland group, DARK COUNTRY, who we think are nothing short of rockstars in the making...
http://catonthewall.net/?p=2805

And then, today, Michal's brought in an interview with the musicman of Carach Angren, Ardek, in the first appearance of black metal on our proud little 'zine.

Well isn't that lovely! This April, Cat on the Wall is up for the Wales Blog of the Year award for Best music/entertainment blog.

Why Wales? Well, that's where Cat on the Wall was founded by our old editors so very long ago. The person who pays for the domain still lives in Wales - I do 'front of house', do all the writing, kiss all of the lovely people and go to the gigs. A charmed life ;)

We're one of three choices in the best music/entertainment category, and, taking into account all other categories, we're one of but 32 blogs to be shortlisted out of over 300 entrants!

This is a maaasssive achievement for little old us and we're incredibly proud. Voting will begin on April the 14th - I'll probably bring you some more information closer to the time. But bloody oh Crikey oh Reilly, didn't expect that today..!
