The Family Cat – Remember What it is That You Love

The follow up single to the critically acclaimed debut the Tom Verlaine single.  Remember What It Is That You Love was released on Bad Girl Records, and covered by Cud. The Family Cat stood out because they had three guitarists in the line-up and a very poppy, melodic and catchy armoury of songs. It is not true that they were from Yeovil.  They were mainly from Cornwall, which is probably why their debut album was called Tell’em were Surfin’.  To my knowledge they were the the first people to produce FCUK (Family Cat UK) T-Shirts.  These had a Mod Target on them, and came out long before French Connection started to use the say logo and text.

The Family Cat – Goldenbook

The last single by The Family Cat and not their best, but probably contains the best song title ever, Bring Me The Head Of Michael Portillo.  This title is on a par with Half Man Half Biscuit’s, Trouble over Bridgewater.
