- Courtcase 2000 by Cats In Paris
Cats in Paris are the latest hopes from Manchester trying to inject some spunk & originality into their cities legacy. And boy, do they succeed. Not a Joy Div bassline in sight not a Smithsian jangle to be heard or a Roses-esque monkey wail to be winced at. 'Courtcase 2000' is brooding groove-prog, & epic strange-pop. The single strikes me as up there with the best tracks from the last Chap album, and overall they have that same uncanny knack with timeless harmonies & sudden jarring dadaist deconstruction whilst keeping to a very melodic track, injecting some lovely mournful strings into the spaces between the motorik future pop. They've definitely latched onto the underground's new found love of classic analogue sounds, starchasing schizo indie pop epics and wonky, celebratory hook laden madness. They are like a cross between Add N to X and Johnny Foreigner so really a great deal of fun. The most important thing is, because of the ever morphing wall of intriguing sounds and the zig zag feel of it all, you're never bored. Also for fans of Kling Klang and TCFTSIST. on Akoustik Anarkhy, CD only.
