Dirty Cheetah - Got Caught

  Back in February when I featured a new single by Montreal punk n rollers Dirty Cheetah I predicted their upcoming debut album would be very good. I wish I was as good at predicting lottery numbers as I was spot on. It's very good indeed. It's titled Never Too Late and whilst we still have to wait a little while longer for No Front Teeth Records and Resurrection Records to release it on vinyl, the digital version is available now. You should go snap it up.

  With 2 killer singles and a mighty fine ep under their belts we already had a good idea of what to expect from the album. The music is pretty simple and straight forward in the way that The Ramones were simple and straight forward (and very effective!). It's the type of sound that'll make you want to stomp and chant. It's rock n roll with a punk edge. It deserves to be played loud to intoxicated kids in sweaty dives but I guess it'll be a while yet before that happens.

  Lyrically it doesn't take itself too seriously. Frontman Pat Panic has a damn fine voice and he regales us with tales of petty criminals, mind confusion, crazy murderers & infatuation....

  This track has it all, great riffs, dumb lyrics and a big ending. It's called Got Caught...
