BIG KITTY: “The Carp Song” b/w “Waterfall of Love”: 7”

Jul 18, 2011

Being a record reviewer sometimes sucks. Billy and Cole of the Future Virgins play behind this solo dude. I want to say something nice, because I really like Billy and Cole and don’t want to be a royal dick. Take in the following from a dude who owns and plays a big chunk of the Kingston Trio catalog. Compared to Big Kitty, the Kingston Trio sound like Slayer. It’s Renaissance faire-sounding stuff that I imagine is performed in bright green tights, while prancing, and full of lute solos. One song’s told from the perspective of an overfed trout. Please, no. Beautiful silk-screened cover.
