SINGLE REVIEW: Cats That Bark – ‘O’Rileys’


Cats That Bark’s debut single is a tribute to one of their hometown’s much loved venues (For those of you who may not know, this means the band are from Hull – Ed).

‘O’Rileys’ is a raucous punky thing with hints of metal, a big hint of metal – loose let it all hang out vocals, guitars that are positively dangerous, drums clatter – played at breakneck speed. This thing is a blast of outrageously glorious noise. It even comes with intro and outro ‘venue’ sounds.

People this track is fun, and there’s nothing wrong with that. It celebrates one of our beloved grassroots venues – and this is something we all ought to be doing.

Play fucking loud, as loud as you dare and then some, and rock out.
