Metal Blade Records releases classic albums from rock musician Freddy Moore - The Kats, Nu Kats, and BOY releases available for the first time digitally! Freddy Moore to play a show this Saturday in Los Angeles to celebrate the releases.
Fans of Freddy Moore's rock bands The Kats, Nu Kats, and BOY can finally purchases releases from these bands on iTunes. Re-mastered and being released for the first time ever digitally are The Kats Get Modern (1979), The Nu Kats Plastic Facts EP (1980), The Nu Kats Live @ Davlen (1981), BOY Westlake – Single (1983), and BOY Live on Hollywood Blvd (1984). If you are a fan of bands like Oingo Boingo, The Cars, and Talking Heads you definitely need to check out these releases.

In honor of the release of these amazing rock albums/EP/and single, founding members of The Kats, Nu Kats, Boy, Skogie & the Flaming Pachucos, Freddy Moore (Acoustic Guitar, Vocals), Dennis Peters (Guitar, Vocals), and Mr. Ed Warnecke (Drums) will be performing a showcase at Genghis Cohen in Los Angeles, CA this Saturday (6/30). The band re-learned several songs from The Kats/Nu Kats/Boy era just for this show and will perform from 1030-1130pm, but will be arriving earlier in the evening to sound check, hangout, and chat with fans.
Pete McRae lead guitar virtuoso, Dennis Peters on bass and vocals, and Al Galles on drums and vocals constitute a flashy group of instrumentalists, laying down tightly structured backing patterns complete with jazzy jitterbug rhythms. Freddy Moore, a first-rate singer who punctuates his solid gutsy vocal delivery with earthy growls, is complimented by his brother Bobbyzio's unbridled passion on saxophone. The Kats uniqueness is largely the result of their engaging concept -- an individual appropriately named Freddy, an underdog or in this case an underKat. Buoyed by the band's good-natured rock 'n' roll vibes, the song pattern evolved into a rock opera of sorts. The theme is so subtly presented that Moore's lyrics do not seem contrived, unlike many rock concepts. The songs don't serve up a plot per se but each number ties into the next, Freddy's problems continually crop up throughout the record. "An unrecognized pop masterpiece. Hopefully it will get the exposure it deserves." - P. Mihelcic

  1. И здесь ссылочка померла. Очень хочется послушать. Перезалейте плиз.
    Metal Blade и поп-рок?... Как-то даже странновато. На картинке выглядят как панки.

    1. Нет проблем. Ссылку обновил. / New Link.

    2. Спасибо за ознакомление! Слуханул. К сож, не мое. Эт даже не панки, а моды конца 70-х. Но некоторые места очень даже ничего.
