GIG – The Lounge Kittens at The Wedgewood Rooms – Thursday 27th April 2017

lounge kittensTuneful, cheeky, glamorous and geeky. They perform unlikely covers in a more unlikely style.

Between the three of them their musical tastes span the genres of Rock, Jazz, Punk, Psychobilly, Ragga, Hip Hop, Ska, Pop, Soul, Metal, Dance, House, Grunge…actually pretty much all genres. There is literally no one they wouldn’t cover and their 2015 release ‘Just The Tip…’ featuring covers of everything from Slipknot to Sean Paul proves just that.

Shooting to fame in 2014 with their viral internet video for their cover of ‘Rollin’ by Limp Bizkit, the Kittens then knocked audiences for six at Glastonbury and Sonisphere festivals (among others) and were even invited to open Limp Bizkit’s set on the main stage at Sonisphere! In 2015 they took off on a UK and European arena tour with the bad boys of heavy metal Steel Panther and then rampaged through Download Festival, Graspop, Boardmasters and returned to Glastonbury for the second year in a row.

From YouTube to Wembley in one nimble leap they keep surprising audiences with their tongue-in-cheek covers, acerbic wit and ability to swear in three part harmony, proving that they can hold the attention of the heaviest of metal fans armed with just a keyboard and their voices. 2016 saw them release their first full length album ‘Sequins & C-Bombs’, head out on a UK headline tour and open for Status Quo’s ‘Last Night of the Electrics’ Tour.
