Cool (for) Catskills
Sadly, despite the reggae output, Catskills Records (which I just discovered via my post below on The Blue Room) is not based out of Woodstock, Catskill, Hunter or even Bearsville. It’s based out of Brighton, England, like just about every other dance label in the UK. The name, it would appear, has nothing to do with our lovely mountainous region in upstate New York, but is instead a play on felines with talent. To which end the web site posts pictures of cool cats doing their thing. Like this one….
Catskills Records also links to other cool cat web sites. My favorite is Britney’s Naked Cat-o-phone. But that’s just me and my perverted sense of humor. Surprisingly, Catskills Records does not link to the now infamous Record Store Cats, of which this Funk Cat is one the latest additions.
I was introduced to the lovable Record Store Cats by my good friend Jeni, who was convinced that the House Cat below (also known online as Hardcore Steve) bore a startling resemblance to Yours Truly on the wheels of steel. It’s a thought. Have a great weekend.
