If it's rock n' roll, then Cats In Love who will be at No Black Tie KL on 8 September 2019 knows a thing or two about it. The band, having cut its teeth on roots music of the past century, aspires to take its brand of no frills music out to a willing audience.
It's been 15 years since the band began, and while in today's terms that seems a lifetime, never forget AC/DC's prophetic words - it's a long way to the top if you want to rock’n’roll.
And like every other fable of lofty ambitions, nothing ever quite works out as planned. While the band’s personnel eased through a revolving door over the years, the seats that were finally filled included that of LOHAN (guitars, vocals), JAIME (bass) and RASHAAD (drums), and occasionally, WONG (keys).
Cats In Love is under no grand illusion that life is going to be easy plying a route less-travelled, but the band’s guiding light has always been the music, and that’s exactly what these musicians live (and die) for. And customary with rock music from the golden era of the genre – 60s and 70s – they throw in smatterings of all things that have come to define classic rock music.
The band is on the cusp of releasing its debut album, No Paws For Regret, which, if all goes to plan, will see the light of day sooner rather than later. Till then though, CIL will see you under the glare of stage lights at a joint near you.
