Once upon a time, before the days of autotune and iTunes, the Land of Music was ruled by Gods – Gods who shared one vision. A vision of songs that spoke volumes, tunes that spun tales wilder than your most daring fantasies, records that recalled roaring dragons and fiery eruptions of awesome. Armed with their gut-wrenching riffs and an obscene amount of hair spray, these musicians stormed Top Of The Pops with the most audacious concept known to man; the Concept Album.
But alas, it was not meant to be. Albums that were made to be listened to from start to finish met their untimely demise with the invention of the Shuffle, and as soon as tracks could be bought individually, the concept of the Concept Album was doomed forever. How could the trusty, dusty record player compete with the MP3, who dared to challenge Steve Jobs, and what could we do about the fall of Top Of The Pops? It was time to give in to technological advances, only looking back to weep in the dark about simpler times.
But then, through the darkness came a shining light. Some called her crazy, some called her revolutionary, but to the humble town of Aberdare she goes by only one name: Cat. With hair brighter than the brightest sun and a spirit that casts others into shadow, there was no doubt in anyone’s mind that if anyone could save us from the dark times of Modern Music that lay ahead, it was her.
Cat brings to you The Cat Southall Product, and a promise. A promise to bring the return of the Concept Album, through the power of her trusty alter-ego and the support of her very own army. Cat, and Cat’s Army, are ready to unveil the next big thing, and it all begins on March 30th, 2013.
Cat, the first editor of WICID.tv and an imperative part of CLIC Towers, is ready. With the help of her trusted army, Cat is launching her solo project at Clwb Ifor Bach on March 30th, at 8:30pm, with support from CLIC favourites Eric Unseen.
Allow Cat to introduce you to the Girl Wonder that is Nancy Neuron, who vows to save the planet from the fear which once crippled her, now made a reality by Dr Lukas Vent and his Army of Steambots. This is the night which brings Nancy to life, the night which could change it all for music. Do you dare enlist into Cat’s Army?
