Ste McCabe - Bad Kitty


Cherryade are delighted to present the rollercoaster ride of an album that is Ste McCabe's Bad Kitty! Widely recognised as an underground hero, Ste has been touring his inimitable electro-pop-punk constantly across the UK and Europe for over 6 years, earning him major features in Artrocker Magazine, Time Out London and GT as well as receiving repeated BBC radio airplay from the likes of Huw Stephens and Tom Robinson. Bad Kitty blends pop beats, fuzzy guitars, creepy synths and riot grrrl inspired punk with lyrics which range from the hilariously cutting and self-depricating through to dark depictions of a very messed up Britain. Listen casually and you'll be smitten with Ste's slightly camp, insanely catchy home-made pop sound. Listen more closely and you'll hear Ste's razor-sharp tongue taking on welfare reforms, banks, and homophobes to name but a few. Put simply, Bad Kitty hisses and scratches at all the right people, but still manages to be cute, irresistible and difficult to put down. We proudly bring you Ste McCabe's finest moment and a truly classic modern punk album. Enjoy!
