Biography

Cat on Form was a four piece punk rock band from Brighton, UK. Their music was intense and sometimes chaotic but always remained strongly melodic. They combined elements of Dischord style angular rock music with harsher screamed punk sounds in the vein of Reversal of Man. Their lyrics and artwork often have strong political content, dealing with themes of dissatisfaction, anger, frustration, anticapitalism and the desire to make a positive change in the world.

The initial line up of Dan, Jamie, Steve and Eva recorded the ‘Butterfly Kiss the Tar of a Thousand Births’ EP on Vacuous Pop and a full length album for Southern, ‘Structure and Fear’. The release of the album was quite a big step for the band as it recieved world wide distribution. After extensive touring Eva left and their next record, ‘Blanket Over Your Eyes’ was written and recorded with their friend Tom playing drums in her place. The 2nd album had a harsher sound and a darker, more pessimistic tone, partly influenced by their experiences of touring in the US, where the album was recorded with Steve Roche of Off Minor.

The band played their last show at the Freebutt in their hometown of Brighton, as part of a benefit bill. After the breakup of the band, members have gone on to play in acts such as Blood Red Shoes, Manacle,Projections, end the agony, Rope, Failed Rockets and Yelp of Sords.

    Fuck, I must've been on a ketamine bender when I wrote that new Off Minor sounds like Cat On Form. Anyways, Steve, guitar/vocals in Cat On Form does indeed now play drums/vocal for Blood Red Shoes.

    HA! Should be a good record then, right? Quite odd that Off Minor would take cues from Cat On Form and not the other way round, though. Looking forward to it.

    The new Off Minor record really sounds a hell of a lot like A Butterfly Kiss The Tar Of A Thousand Births. COINCIDENCE??
