CAT PARTY: “Jigsaw Thoughts” b/w “Entitled”: 7”

Bummed rock. But still rock. (At one time, known as Mope Rock.) Just bummed in a Marc Almond, slower Sisters Of Mercy, Cure way, but done by folks who’ve been put through the punk grist mill. That means the guitar’s a bit more interested in weaving instead of blasting, the lyrics can be decoded on the first couple of listens, and the whole enterprise is atmospheric in a low-cloud, grey-day way, but languidly catchy and well constructed. For fans of Manikin and The Fuses, too. Good job.
