Biography

Quebec, Montreal (1999 – present)

The Sainte Catherines have been around since 1999 and are the first band Fat Wreck Chords has ever worked with from Quebec, Montreal to be exact, sacre bleu! Their Fat debut, Dancing For Decadence, is a perfect representation of their hard-working, hard-drinking, hard-hitting brand of punk rock. People call them crusty, punk, metal, hardcore…whatever, but they sarcastically describe themselves as “Motley Crue taking a bath with Tragedy while Hot Water Music argues with Leatherface about the state of punk rock.” At least we think it’s sarcastic…?

A more accurate description would have to include the fact that this is a band that is truly living among the activist/punk community. Guitarist Fred is employed full-time by Greenpeace, Marc tracks punk bands at his home studio, Bassist Pablo works at Montreal’s most renowned punk record shop, and so on. Shoot, singer Hugo is a Janitor for crying out loud, and you can’t get more punk than that! Hugo explains their bands’ involvement, “It’s just natural for us because we all share the same punk rock ideals and desire to make things better. I think it’s really weird when bands in this scene don’t have that set of beliefs.”

    The new record is really good. I was not expecting to like it that much. Is that Tony Sly on "Maggie & Dave"?

    Fire Works is so fucking good. Wasn't expecting an album like this but I'm glad they went this direction. Love it.
