Monkey Business

In the early eighties , it seemed you couldn`t turn round without bumping into a band called the `something` Cats ......Stray Cats ~ it wasn`t very cool to say you liked them , but everybody had the first album (IMO Brian AlkaSeltzer is a knob).......Polecats ~ they had a little chart success , dressed a bit gay , had the excellent Boz Boorer on guitar......Blue Cats ~ best of the bunch , proper authentic sound , great choice of material , I played their self titled Rockhouse album till it wore out .
Anyway , Clive Osbourne played sax on that first Blue Cats LP and on the 4th of Feb it`s his birthday , so to celebrate , there`s a party down at the Brass Monkey . The Arousers , Thee Missing Finks (with some idiot on Bass) and Clive`s band The Sufin` Gorillas .
See flyer for details.

  1. Has Clive still got that blond quiff? Saw him play with a few different bands in the 80s... nice to hear he's still about. And I agree... the Blue Cats were top-notch. 'Wild Night' is killer.
