Frogball was a short lived band from Bellingham, MA/Worcester, MA.  They played stupid as fuck pop punk with a lot of hardcore influence.  Frogball has very short songs about smelling bad, wanting nachos, being lazy, hanging out, and drinking.  Stuff I can totally get behind.  The songs are catchy, fun, and great to sing along to.  They are definitely one of my favorites ever to come from MA and possibly one of my favorite bands ever.  "Fuck" may be one of the best songs ever written as it has withstood the very rigorous test of being listened to upwards from 72 times in a row, while screaming every word, drinking multiple 40oz's, and putting holes in an apartment ceiling while fist pumping.  Sounds as fresh and good as it ever did.  This release contains ALMOST everything the band did.  The name of the album, and the first three songs, are quotes from the best movie ever Dirty Work, directed by Bob Saget and starring Norm MacDonald.  If you haven't seen it, what are you stupid?  However, this is the SECOND best album about Dirty Work, the first being some bullshit from some bullshit Canadian band.  Anyways, I'm rambling here. Just listen to this and fall in love.  FFO: Dolarhyde, TKC, Kill Conrad, Screeching Weasel, Angry Samoans, Descendents, Beavis and Butthead, Nu-Metal


Here is the Dolarhyde/Frogball split cassette that was limited to 100 or something and released after the band broke up.  Songs are still awesome.  What a shame.  THIS IS NOT MY RIP!

Cat Is The Bastard First Release!

With the first release of Cat Is The Bastard (Under Siege's small time cassette label) I have opened a store to buy the cassettes that I currently have. The store will be updated with each release or new tape that comes into my possession.


Go Sailor - Don't Go 7" (1996)

1. Don't Go
2. Ray of Sunshine
3. Together Forever In Love
4. Every Day

Go Sailor were an indie-pop/twee band on Lookout! Records in the late '90s.  They share members from the awesome Tiger Trap, who sound pretty similar.  They also shared members with Crimpshrine, The Softies, and Henry's Dress.  This is adorable girl fronted pop at it's best.  SO CATCHY.  Really light sounding guitars and fast drumming make it really poppy.  REALLY POPPY.  Awesome riffs and tons of hooks.   It makes you just wanna dance! The lady from this band also has a wonderful voice.  "Together Forever in Love" is my JAM.  They have recently started playing some shows again, although I'm not sure if it's going to be a full time deal.  They are playing in NYC May 19th at the NYC POPFEST.  Soooo if you're in the area check out a band that will probably never play again!  FFO: Tiger Trap, Talulah Gosh, Cub, Lemuria, Vivian Girls


Dillinger Four - Higher Aspirations Tempered and Dismantled (1995)

1. Shotgun Confessional
2. Unemployed
3. Smells Like OK Soda
4. One Trick Pony

I don't really know what to say about Dillinger Four that hasn't already been said.  If you're checking out this blog you should probably already know this band.  D4 are from Minneapolis, MN and play gruff, raw, and fast pop-punk.  They play a style that has been aped and poorly imitated by hundreds of bands of recent memory, but this is the original and the real deal.  I love the dual vocals, switching between melodies and aggression.  The music is the same way; nice melodies and fast aggressive punk.  The lyrics are very tongue in cheek and satirize modern society and government. Y'know, and pop punk stuff like being poor and lonely.  This is their first release, as far as I can tell, and its definitely a good one.  This stuff is on the "This Shit is Genius" LP that collects their splits and 7" so you may already have this, but whatever.  It's still great.  The band is still around from time to time, and put out the wonderful "C I V I L W A R" in 2008.  Members play in a couple other bands, but Paddy plays in The Arrivals, who you should definitely check out, and Cleveland Bound Death Sentence, who shares members of Crimpshrine!  FULL CIRCLE!  Sorry I don't have a better picture, my scanner is broken.  FFO: The Midwest, Crimpshrine, Toys That Kill, Green Day, Pop-Punk, Latterman


Crimpshrine - Quit Talkin' Claude EP (1989)

1. Butterflies
2. Situation
3. Easy Answers
4. Inspiration

Crimpshrine was a band from the Berkeley, CA area in the late '80s/early '90s that was hugely influential on bands in the area and in punk rock in general.  Members went on to form/play in bands such as Pinhead Gunpowder, Fifteen, Tilt, Sweet Baby, Astrid Oto, Cleveland Bound Death Sentence, Thorns of Life, and even Screeching Weasel.  Aaron Cometbus, the drummer, has been in a billion bands since Crimpshrine and publishes the amazing Cometbus zine, still to this day, tracking his adventures over the years.  The band was hugely influential on giants and contemporaries such as Green Day and Operation Ivy.  Their sound is very uniquely their own and modern bands such as The Credentials, Witches With Dicks, Chinese Telephones, Shang-a-Lang, among others, owe their entire existence to this band.  Needless to say this is an important band and this is an important record.  Messy, raw, punk sounding pop-punk.  Calling it pop-punk would be wrong I think however.  It's just poppy punk before there was a name for it.  GET THIS IF YOU HAVE NEVER HEARD IT.  FFO: Witches With Dicks, Screeching Weasel, Fifteen, Green Day

Here is an interview with them from a 1988 issue of Maximum Rock'N'Roll:

9. You Are Here
10. The Prince

OH BOY!  Plow United (formerly Plow as detailed in a pretty funny cease and desist included in the 12") are one of my favorite bands.  Hailing from Wilmington, Delaware (we're in Delaware...) Plow United played fast, balls to the wall poppy punk with lots of hardcore influence.  They sound a bit like 90's Screeching Weasel-y punk with way more early Descendents influence and some Lifetime thrown in if that helps paint a picture.  They called it "Thrash Pop" which is fairly accurate I'd say.  Anways, you should definitely check it out and if you like it go find their other stuff.  This is definitely the best though.  The S/T record is fucking amazing from start to finish and "Spindle" is probably the best song ever.  New Jersey hardcore band Tear it Up shamelessly lifted the "if I could treat you like shit then you'd love me forever" line from that song.  The songs on the split are also good, but slower.  "Reason" is on both and you can definitely see they got tighter and faster between the time period these came out.  I included the Tall Man songs in this download too.  Tall Man were from WC and play a sort of Minutemen style punk with a lady singer.  Definitely worth checking out.  FFO: Descendents, Weston, Lifetime, Bouncing Souls, Tear it Up


SINKHOLE - Stool (1993), Donkey (1995), Queers Split (1995), and New Breath Split (1996)

Here we have four, count 'em, FOUR 45s from one of New Hampshire's best and most underrated bands, SINKHOLE.  Sinkhole came from the also great, A.G.'s from Newmarket area, NH and members went on to form Doc Hopper and The Groucho Marxists, played in The Measure [SA], and recorded/produced a bunch of sweet pop-punk albums (like The Ergs!). Sinkhole played really energetic and unique sounding pop-punk.  Hugely influential in bands like The Ergs! and Billy Raygun, who have both totally ripped them off (whether they know it or not).  So with that said you should have a slight idea of what they sound like.  Stool is a real early recording for the band.  I'm not huge on the eponymous song, but "Waterbug" and "Sneeze" are both fucking fantastic.  Donkey is awesome the whole way through, with diverse songs and great lyrics.  Love Ain't Punk is ok, skip the Queers songs and the GG Allin cover.  The split with New Breath is really good too, and New Breath themselves aren't bad.  I included the Queers and New Breath songs in this download too, by the way, because I love you.  FFO: The Ergs!, Billy Raygun, Pop-punk, Toys That Kill, Sicko

Sinkhole also has all of their full-lengths up on their website located here: http://slower.net/sinkhole/#news.  Definitely check out everything they have up there because it is all phenomenal.  Core Sample is my favorite.




WHADDUP?  This week we had a live musical performance by Dover, NH's own Eyenine.  Eyenine is a hip hop artist with thought provoking and critical lyrics.  He has a new CD out that you can pick up at any number of places if you are interested.  Support local musicians.  Check out Flyrock Records, located in Dover.  They record and put out a ton of local music for fairly cheap and very well done.  Also here is a music video for his song "Wasted" in lieu of footage of him performing in studio!

Anyways, ON TO THE CAT PARTY! We also had former DJ FANCY/ come back and help spin some jams.  Then he fell asleep.  Good job!

Also, Billy Raygun will NOT be performing live on air next week.  Why?  Because they are big baby twats and "have school" the next week.  Maybe they'll play in the future.  Maybe I'm too hurt to let myself fall for their lies again.  Anyways, there may be another band replacing them.  I'll let you know the details when I get them.  SEE YA NEXT WEEK.

Porphyria - Live In Leominster, MA 9/4/2004


Here is a local death metal band from our area, New Hampshire. This band killed it back when they were still together, fast, technical, and catchy. They had a big following and were getting out there around the country. Sadly they are no more, or at least very lowly active. Check this if you like Suffocation, Morbid Angel, or Death. This is old school death metal fans paying homage with their own twist.

I got this demo from their guitar player at the brick house in Dover, NH around 2005. Good sound for a live death metal show, and the dude was one of the nicest people I ever chatted with. Cheers!


The Nightmare Continues - Demo


Alright so I have no idea when this is from other than around the early 00's. I also don't know which show I got it from, all I know is that it's pretty good for a New England grind band, and that they broke up which is always a shame. Especially when a decent grind band is involved. Check this out if you like Discordance Axis, A.S.R.A, or Insect Warefare. Thanks to RTTP.com for the picture because I can't upload the picture of the demo that I have, due to a lack of a scanner! ENJOY!


COA - Is This My World? Demo (Colin Of Arabia)


Here is a demo from the Boston, MA based band Colin Of Arabia. I'm not the biggest fan of this band, but when I saw them forever ago I picked up this demo and it actually rips.They do an Infest of Behind This Tongue on it, and was supposed to be a seven inch but whoever was supposed to put it out didn't. Any way check this out it's good.

I came across a stack of demo's i got all across New England recently, so stay tuned!!
