CD Review: Katie’s Randy Cat

Katie's Randy CatThe Self-Titled CD from Katie's Randy Cat out of Toledo, OH is a short (Only 4 tracks) but jammed packed album that fans of groups like Dropkick Murphys, The Young Dubliners and Flogging Molly will enjoy

The album kicks off with a kicked up version of “The Irish Rover” filled with lots of accordion, drums, guitars and just general fun mayhem.

It then kicks into an equally kicked up version of “A Nation Once Again.” This is my favorite Irish Rebel song, and I always find it unique to see how many different ways this song is redone.

Probably my favorite track out of all four is actually the one that is the LEAST like the others. KRC's version of “Foggy Dew” is a very slow and mellow but brought in a very strong and soulful way. I'd love to see these guys perform other Irish ballads in this way.

The album ends with what is pretty much a jam session which turns into “Drunken Sailor” Very fun to listen to….

Overall, a solid album that is worth a listen to. Should be fun to see what these guys come up with in the future!!
