Biography

Ghostcat are a love-hate duo; a delirious, funtime soundclash of dancefloor beats, hurting circuits, pop lust, sonic sleaze and good time music giving vent to bad, bad thoughts. The match between Alicat and Dan Gamble is a perfectly twisted one, pitting a narcoleptic Chinese/Canadian Baudelaire-reading Wu-Tang Clan fan singer against a megalomaniac enigmatic Madonna-loving Japanese/English synth guru. Never before in the history of pop music has there been such a danceable catfight.

Dan grew up between Tokyo and London tuning into American pop and deconstructing 80s stadium rock. Born in Toronto, Ali grew up alongside Crystal Castles and Death From Above 1979 before forming her own all-girl teen punk band at sixteen years old.

They met in the bathroom of a nefarious London nightclub and realising that they were both pop (in its broadest sense) obsessives agreed to differ on a perfectly mismatched musical project. First gigs were raucous live shows sounding half The Kills and half Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Gig by gig they got in touch with their inner dirty dancefloor selves so that by the time they were signed up they were flinging crockery as diverse at Lil’ Kim and Lady Gaga, ‘Some Girls’-era Stones and Trevor Horn around the room.

Their 2009 debut single ‘This Is A Bust’ shaped up as a dirty disco skipping tune about boys. “Mutant disco moggies destined to haunt us” said The Guardian. “GHOSTCAT make the Gossip look like yesterday’s kitty litter” announced Disorder.
