They are calling it ‘Power Pop Rock’, and their aim is to unashamedly take you back to the heady days of the 1970s when bands like Queen, ELO, 10cc, Supertramp & Sweet, ruled the airwaves.
With the ‘Mr Heartache’ single still gaining play on radio stations throughout the world, including BBC RADIO 2, views on YouTube has now flown past the 20,000 mark. Many radio stations have played virtually every track off the ‘Too Many Gods’ album such is the strength of songs on offer. The album to date has received hundreds of reviews from all over the world and without exception all have been overwhelmingly incredible, with quotes that are simply out of this world! Many citing it as ‘album of the year’. Many in fact, claim it is the finest album of its kind for decades. Some are saying ‘CATS in SPACE’ have a brand new sound, despite being firmly rooted in the 1970s. Whatever, the army of followers grows steadily in anticipation of further live shows and more releases heading this way in 2016.
The band have even been championed by their rock peers including: Danny Bowes (Thunder), Tim Smith (Jellyfish), Gary Shea (New England) & Dave Colwell (Bad Company) to name a few.
“Since the inception and formation of what was very much a ‘studio vanity project’ just over a year ago, it is really quite surreal that now i sit here planning a UK tour, talking to major players in the music world, having fellow musicians give us their seal of approval, and sifting through every single day so many truly incredible comments and reviews about CATS in SPACE. Yeah, ok, i had a small hunch that a few folk would dig the music i wanted to do, but this? ..Not a ‘cat in hells’ chance!
Our debut live show was a night i don’t think any of us will ever forget, and to receive such a reception as we did renewed faith in us as musicians, and the fans too, that there is a music business out there for people who just want to hear quality commercial rock, like we all did back in the 70s.
These are crazy days for us all right now and it feels bloody amazing…” -Greg Hart (CATS in SPACE)
