Partying with LE CLUB DES CHATS!!!

Since Le Club des Chats achieved the HIGHEST POSSIBLE ARTGAY rating in Dave's last post, you know they're good. And they love kitty-cats. And they love 7" covers littered with pictures of kitty-cats with lasers coming out of their eyes. And they're called "The Cat Club." So now you know they're gonna be not just GOOD, but AWESOME. And that's before you hear the gloriously insane, insanely catchy "Ring a Ding," from their Yes Madame! 7" on SS Records, sung in ridiculous, sped-up, French-accented voices.

Not that they're for everyone. My BF ordered their other 7" on SS, Pump Up the Seed! (they're fond of exclamation marks, too), for the same reason I did--they're French, and their cover art features laser-eyed cats. Not with the same results though. His first reaction: "I don't know whether I should like this or hate it." One week later: "I hate it." I can't guarantee that YOU will "like" it, but you definitely won't be able to get it out of your skull. Whenever I finally lose it and go on a public shooting spree, you better believe this is what's going to be playing in my head in a shrill and endless loop.

I found more animal-themed madness on the website for their label in France, Le Vilain Chien. Who are these people??? And what do they want??? Besides pictures of cats and dogs in party hats, that is?
