Comprised of PETER MAVROGEORGIS and BLAKE OLMSTEAD, Twisty Cats are an electro-punk rock band who marry the soul and swagger of The Cramps and some early New York City grit to the seductive throb of their primitive rhythm machine.
Founded in the late-night afterparty scene, the duo had their respective hands in the NYC music scene for a number of years. When Peter wasn't in the studio recording the likes of The National or Sharon Van Etten, he busied himself touring the world as guitarist for Tav Falco's Panther Burns, and his own band Bellmer Dolls. All this, while Blake hustled the New York City fashion industry, and moonlit as a DJ in the NYC Lower East Side haunts.
The couple moved to Savannah to "see what was there"; and there, immersed in the thick, heady atmosphere of that southern gothic relic, the Twisty Cats found their element, wrote, and recorded during the the late downtime hours at their recording studio/venue, "Dollhouse Productions"
The duo popped back up to NYC for well-received live appearances at the EV hotspot Berlin, in and around Brooklyn, Atlanta, and a host of other EC cities. Twisty Cats just completed their first EU outing having shared dates across Italy with Bilbao, Spain's glitterati Capsula and followed by solo dates in France. The band plans to return to Europe mid September to support their upcoming LP.
