Arch, envelope-pushing heavy pop from genre-hopping Glasgwegian outfit Peter Cat. Songs unburdened by conventional structure, smashed into pieces and reconstituted with velvet, grit and a liberal dose of the minor 7th. Cucurbitaceously yours. FFO: Sparks, Frank Zappa, Pulp.
With a cracking support bill made up of London's Jemma Freeman & The Cosmic Something (Trapped Animal Records) and TV Death.
Jemma Freeman & TCS regale you with lush guitar tones and introspective, psychedelic lyrics delivered with an unbounded energy. Colliding themes of secret worlds, hidden agendas, apathy and anxiety, Jemma’s sonorous voice tells a story of unravelling completely and tying yourself back up again.
"Irreverent and smart pop music in the mold of Neil Hannon, Jarvis Cocker, Luke Haines and a sprinkling of Scott Walker...Peter Cat casts a wry eye over the world, and is moved to make music to match" – Scots Whay Hae!
"A nostalgia-inducing glam-pop romp" – The Skinny
"The latest single from the gloriously oddball songwriter...loses none of that wry, unique perspective" – SNACK Magazine
JEMMA FREEMAN AND THE COSMIC SOMETHING:
“Hostile, vulnerable, but strangely life-affirming…a force of the future” – MOJO, 4/5
“Jemma Freeman and The Cosmic Something’s second album, Miffed, attempts to corral the spirit of a psychedelic space-metal show, a queer Blue Cheer, a neurodivergent Ted Nugent, Queen derailed in Detroit pumping surging celebratory protest music of unashamed stadium scale” – Stewart Lee (yes, that Stewart Lee)
“TV Death have the potential to be the best no-holds-barred rock & roll group to come out of Newcastle since The Animals” – NARC
