Young Governor - Call Me When The Cat Dies - 7"
Young Governor - Call Me When The Cat Dies - 7" ltd
Young Governor, AKA Ben Cook of Fucked Up, The Bitters, No Warning, Marvelous Darlings and Violent Minds fame, continues his outpouring of 7" singles with "Call Me When The Cat Dies" which doesn't let up on the fuzzy garage punk sounds akin to The Replacements or The Undertones.
The Young Gov has been rolling from label to label for the last year or two dishing out some of the best and craziest sounding punk tunes you can get your ears around and this one on Criminal IQ might be the best of the bunch (so far). "Call Me When the Cat Dies" races along with a tense and sinister vibe immediately reminiscent of the Lost Sounds with guitar effects tweaked to make them sound almost synth-like in places. A total rager that sticks hard to the ribs and mind alike. The flip "Fade Away" is a great mod jam that pays homage to fellow Man City fans Oasis and there's even a thank you for weirdo City midfielder Steven Ireland on the cover. A great record by a remarkable song-writer.Available at http://blitzrecords.bigcartel.com/
