An EP full of awesome, horror-inspired old-school rock and roll tracks, The 69 Cats’ sound will be instantly recognizable and cool to anyone who grew up with Saturday Morning cartoons, Nestle Quik- and the Misfits.

Review Fix: How would you describe the band’s sound for someone who’s never heard you guys?
Danny B. Harvey: It’s Rock’n’Roll, pure and simple, you can come up with clever descriptions like “Dark Rockabilly” or “Gothabilly” but in the end it’s just rock-n-roll with rock tracing all the way from Elvis to Bauhaus.
Review Fix: You guys all have a plethora of experience in different bands, how does it all come together?
Harvey: We all work together pretty seamlessly. Jyrki and I share the same love for music that covers many genres and we seem to like the same artists and songs from different eras. I’ve worked with Chopper on many occasions in the past and have been recording and touring with Clem Burke since the late ’80s as a rhythm section- they’re my mates .
