Black Cat Music "Hands In The Estuary, Torso In The Lake"
This is what happens when punk rock grows up. "Hands In The Estuary, Torso In The Lake" is Black Cat Music's third album, from 2001. Their unique brand of rock and roll begain thrilling audiences and listeners in the summer of 1998, and this album reinforces their enduring popularity. The group has extended the reach of their hard driving, nervous breakdown rock and roll, and at the same time developed their own pained blues. This is not a band whose influences are easily traced. Time spent playing in punk bands certainly leaves its mark. But as is usually the case when it comes to Black Cat Music, nothing is what it seems. This is a dark album, but never nihilistic. It is rock, it is blues, it is frantic, it is a portrait of the darker side of modern life. With prior bands including the Criminals, the Receivers, Multi Facet, and the Magnetic, all four members know their way around a stage. But it's the sum of these four parts that creates such urgent rock and roll. Black Cat Music speaks to the loss, regret, beauty, and passion in all of us.
