GUTTERCAT AND THE MILKMEN (Paris) was formed in the ashes of Baby Strange,17 Loners & the Bohemians in the spring of 2007.
After a couple of gigs in Paris & 2 french tours ,the band released 2 debut singles, "Ballad of a drunk man" & "Lonely tears in the dark"...First album "pandora's box"(CD/LP) came out in October 2008!...The band toured FRANCE,SPAIN,BELGIUM...and GERMANY TOUR is planned at the end of October!!!!
I wanna go to Paris,France!I wanna go wow-wow oui oui with these cool cats.The future looks bright for french rock'n'roll music,cause these guys know their melodies.This new band shakes it up just brilliant!They sound just like I feel,when I've had one too many-turning up the volume to the Rock'n'Roll hall of fame of the lost and lonely.Beautiful electric guitars shrieking over a steady beat,as the acoustic rhythm keeps me sober enough to get another bottle of red wine delivered to my table.Maybe Keef turned up at the Villa Nellcote again,invited these rockers and pushed rec as he handed them another bottle of Jack Daniels.But who turned up te mic on the backing ooh's?? I'd give him a shiny medal! Very fuckin' well done! Gimme more!!
RINGO KID (RAFF)) OCTOBER 2007
Guttercats tunes on offer have a very bar-room Rock'n'Roll feel to them in a similar vein to the FACES and the QUIREBOYS,indeed the band themselves cite the likes of JOHNNY THUNDERS,ROLLING STONES and DOGS D'AMOUR among their influences."Ballad of a drunk man " has a fantastic chorus just crying out for a drunken sing-a-long with friends over. "Lonely tears in the dark" has a slight feeling of HANOI ROCKS when they were in a more melancholy mood than their usual glammed up brand of Sleazy Rock'n'Roll.
