Default The Cat Empire

Don't know how many of you guys have heard/heard of The Cat Empire.

They're an Australian 6 Piece Ska/Jazz/Reggae band...really quite a nice Summer Soundtrack for you lucky buggers that have Summer at this time of year.

Check out Their Site. Or Their Wiki.

Good Stuff

I've heard a couple songs and they're pretty cool. Could you upload something?

I think I could manage that.

Give me a few hours though. Just formatted C:\ and gotta get everything back to the way it should be

Yeah, heard "The Chariot" on the radio once as part of their "Up and Comers" feature.

Seem like a solid bunch. Will have to check 'em out further.

EDIT: Whoops. Sorry for the "bump". Wanted to talk about 'em, but didn't want to start a whole new thread with one existing already....

I was asking before.... since they are so kick ass, I wanted to know if this was an Australia trend and if there are any similar bands I should be looking for?

In the particular style of T.C.E, none spring to mind.
But, there are several Dub Bands that are worth listening to like "Katchafire" "Fat Freddies Drop" etc....

Check them out if you wish

I really like these guys, saw them live in sunny Brum not so long ago. Nobody should be that good at the trumpet. But Harry Angus is. Incredible.

Not particulalry an Aussie trend, lamentably. The ska scene needs more Aussie awesomeness.
