And King Tuts Said....Local Glasgow boys CATCHER have gone through numerous line ups,but essentially revolve around the songwriting of singer/guitarist Mike Barry.Musically they fall somewhere between the frenetic rush of early Buzzcocks and the considered celtic folkisms of Christy Moore and have played with the likes of Paul Nutini and BIS amongt others.The band have released 5 albums ,most recently 2007s Bi polar Bear disorder and hold the record for the most appearances of any band at Tuts ,with tonight being their 39th.
Check this from the Daily Record (Friday June 15 2007)- Bi Polar Bear Disorder THIS is the band who hold the record at King Tut's for most appearances. Tonight (Friday June 15) will be their 36th outing at the famous venue. Their new album keeps up the good work of their last one, The West Nile Virus. Singer Mike Barry has a voice and ear for melody like Julian Cope from the Teardrop Explodes. Opening track Walkabout has the indie clout of Midnight Oil or James. Unashamedly indie pop this is another huge album from one of Scotland's catchiest bands. Do You Remember could be The Monkees and the album title track with its plentive harmonica is a deft political statement against global warming wrapped up in a sugary pop tune.
