Catgut – Goosegg Smooshkeg

The songwriting genius of OLD UGLY’s Phil Holtby, last embodied by the appellation DoT, has returned in the 90’s grunge inspired Catgut project. These scrappy garage recordings capture the minimal straight ahead ethos Phil imbues Catgut with live. His guitar writing is endlessly interesting, delving into so many different corners of the riffosphere. And I have already spoken at lenght on his endearing croak of a voice but it must be said that when employed in Catgut, that croak takes on a saw’s serated edge and becomes something even bigger and more alluring! The CD release for this gem is tonight at Wunderbar where very limited copies of this record will be available for consumption! Here’s the event.
