I have to say I’m new to Finland’s Cats on Fire. They’ve been around for some eight years apparently and are currently recording their third album, in the meantime this week they’re releasing “Dealing in Antiques”, a 20-track odds-n-sods compilation from the band. Check out their version of White Town’s “Your Woman“, it’s actually pretty cool.
Pat Ferrise grew up loving ”the punk rock” and “new wave.” His years at one of the nation’s top college radio stations ultimately led him to a 15-year run as music director of alternative music icon WHFS Washington/Baltimore. Rolling Stone magazine named him of the most influential programmers of the 90s. He’s recorded two albums under the moniker Trampoline for the now defunct SpinArt label. He lives in Baltimore and takes no credit for writing this bio.
