And also a big thanks to Martin Streek for having out to his show on 102.1 to speak to him on air about the CD and to talk up the CD release party!
We had a really great time at the Bovine. I wish I'd seen Caitlin standing up ON the bar, but I missed that. Nicole will soon be compiling some results from the surveys from our "suggestion box", so hopefully we can post some of the best of those online. We were also pleased to have Neddal up on stage for a song. It was all good times!
So the CD is out. As of right now, you can get it by getting in touch with us or coming to a show. It will be available soon-ish on iTunes. We'll let you know when that happens and when we get some in stores somewhere.
And keeping checking our myspace page for updates and shows and all.
Oh! And one more thing... Check out the next issue of Eye Weekly on July 20.
girls, nights, bottles, shows!
Finally! The CD is finished and pressed. The release party is July 14 at the Bovine Sex Club in Toronto. We'll also be celebrating Caitlin's birthday! We'll also be in PA and WV. See the shows page for details!
Carol and the Catmobile!

notes from the road
Our newest member, Noah, did a great job learning the songs and playing the shows - all in 3 weeks! Sure, our set was compromised by a serious lack of tuners on stage - but we still rocked...even when we were hanging on by a thread!
New York was SOOOOO much fun. Our newest driver got some pretty good on site driving lessons from the NYC taxi locals! (Best knish ever!) And I've said it before, and I'll say it again - it's always great to see Rich and Daniel from Year Long Disaster. If you don't know who I'm talking about you should seriously check out this site: Year Long Disaster - and if the words Karma To Burn mean anything at all to you, you will WANT to check it out.
Now that's a band that knows how to rock. I mean ROCK. Songs rock, set rocks, they rock. We also shared the stage with a band called Anthrophobia (what do you mean you never heard of Anthrophobia?) ...I don't even know where to start this story.
First of all, I should mention that we borrowed every single piece of equipment to make these shows happen. I mean, Noah had some drum sticks..and I stashed my big muff (no jokes please...we are all adults here....or are we?) and we bought some picks en route. So, with that in mind...we trapped some of the band's members to help us setting up, getting tones that didn't sound like ping pong balls etc. I have to say that Brent (guitarist for Anthrophobia - who should seriously consider having a shorter name because every time I type it, it takes forever!- not Brent, Anthr....) is a great guitar tech (no offense Duke - you will always be our first and best! ) And needless to say a rockin' guitar player. Sharing the stage with these guys was a blast too...you can check them out at their site and you should. Check them out live if you can..it'll be worth it. Anyway, been listening to the sampler of yld and anthr....and it's pretty solid. (I have some extra copies that I'd mail out if yer interested) We also played with Grae. They rocked too...in fact, Rich picked a pretty solid line up for these shows, and we were pretty lucky to pull it off.
So here we are, back home...I'm off to cuba tomorrow...but when I get back..it seems that our video is finished and our cd is being manufactured as we speak.
Now, I don't know how much you know about the cd...but you should know a few key things. First of all it's a total labour of love....no, don't run away cringing...it really is..and it really rocks. Uncle Punchy (Larry Packer) was the final producer on it and was an integral part of its success... I really don't know whose idea it was , but it just so happened that Clutch (another awesome band) were recording at the same time we were, and they loaned us all of their gear for the u.s. portion of the recording. In the end, they loaned us their keyboard player (Mick Schauer) too - well, actually, I think he drunkenly agreed at the Town Hall....at any rate, he rocks with us on "Slow Motion". It's pretty cool when someone listens to a song once or twice and then just busts out some riffs. And of course, Josh Freese (another drunken agreement) recorded two drum tracks with us ("Sugardaddy" and "Rat Race") and again, I say with complete amazement how incredible it is to watch a professional musician scribble a few notes on some paper and then play the song that we wrote (and probably had to play a gabillion times before we even came close to getting it right) in 2 takes. I mean, the first take was awesome, but not good enough for his standards.
And then let's discuss "Rat Race" for a minute.....ever heard of a band called the Electric Sheep? prolly not. That's because, well, they broke up and one member formed Rage Against the Machine and another member formed/joined Tool. In an unrelated drunken bargaining session, we agreed to cover one of their songs...and hence the song "Rat Race". Now it's really important to understand that "Rat Race" came to us in the mail on a really old tape. Like really old. From the 80's I believe. So you can imagine Josh's face when after a serious night of drinking, he's handed a cassette tape and we sweetly say 'uhm, well, you see, we just got this in the mail, and none of us have learned it yet..but would you mind just playing the drums by yourself...you know, so that later we can record over top?' Josh is such a great sport...I'm pretty sure that he wanted to throw up...hangover...stupid chicks with stupider requests....however....in the end, we have a rock tune. And again...he did it in one take. Incredible....when I think about it, half the time I want to quit cos I'll never be that good..and the other half I want to quit my job and practice all day. (well, I quit my job, so I guess I'm half ways there)
Anyway, so that's that.
The album is called "Three girls, Three nights, Three bottles".....another great story which I'd type if I wasn't supposed to be packing for Cuba. And we'll sell it to you if you ask us nicely. Stay tuned for the cd release / video release party info etc...
