Album Notes
THE POSSESSED. NOT to be confused with defunct death metal band “Possessed”! The band was conceived sometime in late 2005 and originates from the famously historical English town of Hastings, and is the brainchild of PRS writer David Alan Roberts (GB). There's an email address given in the CD cover notes, so that's a line fans could pursue.

The album “Cat’s Life” (released 14th May, 2007 on Daemonic Records) consists of 10 tracks plus a short eleventh track which is a quirky, reversed, partial version of the tenth track, “Farewell And Goodbye”. The songs employ a combination of guitars/bass/drums/sax/keyboards/vocals, and can be roughly classified as Alternative/Indie/Pop/Rock with strong melodic lines and intelligent, observational lyrics. These vary from driving teen angst anthems like “(I Think You’re) Hot” and “Wasted Love” to the thoughtful “save the planet” song “Fifth Of November” (which has no drums on it). Darker, “lost love” songs like “Sad Sad Sea” and “Carpe Diem” give an Emo edge to parts of the album, and there is no shortage of biting satire too in tracks such as “Airhead” and “Killing Man”. The title of the album is a pun on the phrase “That’s Life”, though it also expresses a spirit of independence which contrasts with the slavish phrase “dog’s life”.

A musical compass might point to British and Irish bands such as The Psychedelic Furs, Oasis, Keane, and Snow Patrol as a rough directional guide, though songs like “Airhead” and “Be Your Friend” have an almost American Alternative Country Rock feel to them.
