The Kat Kings – It Came From The Swamp
Nov 6, 2016
(MAPL/Kool Kat Records, “Swinging In The Swamp”, 2016)
Kevin McQuade’s Kat Kings from Toronto, mine the original rockabilly rock n’ roll kats for their inspiration, tapping into the pure grooves of early Elvis, Cash, Perkins etc., and delivering a goddamned beer drinkin’ n’ hell raisin’ party, no doubt about it. In addition to the exceptional vocals and guitar playing from bandleader Kevin McQuade, The Kat Kings are comprised of an award-winning cast and “who’s who” on the Canadian blues and roots scene including the album’s producer Teddy Leonard (Fathead, The Maple Blues All Stars) on additional guitars. The Kat Kings also consists of Al Cross (Drums) and John Dymond (Electric/Upright Bass) and Martin Alex Aucoin . “Swingin’ In The Swamp” is party music the way it used to sound, and the way it should again.
