    Liquid Meat – Rock and Roll – Album Review

    Liquid Meat are good friends of Cat on the Wall – that’s evidenced by vocalist Freddie Mack‘s repeated reappearances on our digital pages. Whether it be an interview regarding his family connections to music history, or his occasional ‘rant and roll’ feature, he shares a lot of our opinions and ideas when it comes to […]

    Tensheds – The Dandy Punk Prince – Album Review

    The piano. Vessel of the sonic seas; one of the greatest of the instruments – pristine, smooth, elegant. Capable of providing any mood, atmosphere and tone. I really do love the piano – particularly in gritty, filthy applications choked up with vapour and smog. Working grit into its presentation is often overlooked, but it’s really […]

    Will Wood and the Tapeworms – ‘Live’ at Coffee Haus Studios

    We’ve always been drawn to the odd, eccentric, off-kilter and vaguely violent at Cat on the Wall – so we’ve kept a finger on the pulse of Will Wood’s throbbing, cabaret-laden appendages. There’s everything unhinged; everything twisted and uncontrollable in the way he and his gang performs. Even with this in mind, nobody skips a […]

So you can imagine our immense relief to see a message from a suspicious, tall, bowler-hatted stranger from Bulgaria, letting us know he had something from 2016 we […]

    The Last Cry – Goodbye – Album Review

    By Jordan Mooney. Proof-read by Lydia Byron. The Last Cry are one of many bands we first witnessed at Whitby Goth Weekend – and we’ve always lauded them for the sheer emotion, and for that immersive, heart rending capability of their output on stage. To see frontman Andrew Birch opening himself up on stage – […]

    Hands Off Gretel – Burn the Beauty Queen – Album Review

    By Jordan Mooney. Where does one go for a new sight? Or a new taste? A new sound? We’ve often theorised that the best place is Whitby Goth Weekend, and it’s at the Spa in April 2016 that we first met the impenetrable power of Hands Off Gretel. Now, the Riotous, raucous and unhinged opus […]
