Since the birth of the label in 1997, FatCat has always had a solid engagement with material sent to us as demos. Where numerous labels will throw demos straight into the trash unopened, at FatCat we've always made an effort to listen and reply to every demo received. Numerous FatCat artists have been picked up having been discovered in this way (including Frightened Rabbit, The Twilight Sad, David Karsten Daniels, Welcome, Odonis Odonis, Get Back Guinozzi!, Silje Nes, Ensemble, Xinlisupreme, Songs Of Green Pheasant, Janek Schaefer - to name just a few), and it has always been really exciting to unexpectedly discover something great in this way. Just as when we started, this philosophy of keeping an ear to the ground and attempting to support good new creativity remains at the core of what we do. Read More


All demos received by FatCat are listened to and replied to. With the amount of demos we are currently receiving, we would prefer if you could send your best tracks rather than sending loads. If we like what we hear, then we will then get back to you and ask to hear more. Read More

YEAR 2006

Produced by: Suzanne'Silver

This demo arrived from Sicily in October 2006. The track we picked out gives a good account of the 4-piece band's cool urgent, angular take on post-punk. Recalling the late '80s US scene, both have a really good sprawling sense of dynamics and form, whilst retaining a super tightness. This is really well played, clever and inventive stuff.

Recorded: live at Mt. Renna (Sr), August 2006, by Sacha Tilotta & Alfredo Musumeci with the Dreams Factory Analog Mobile Studio
