We would like to offer our fans the chance to pre-order our debut EP on a special limited edition 10" glow-in-the-dark vinyl record.

 

Dear Reader,

We would like to offer you the chance to pre-order a special limited edition glow-in-the-dark 10" vinyl record of our debut EP, DOO BEE DOO LA DEE DAY DUM BE DUM DRINK YOUR BLOOD. 

Doobious.org  says: "A mellifluous mix of lyrical genius, doo- wop, and decades of parties packed into each minute of the record. The entire cut is witty, entertaining, and there is even a saxophone! Your life will feel better once you put this on!"

Matt Murphy called it "...one misstep away from TGIF sitcom soundtrack territory..."

We are touring musicians from the Finch House Records family in Sarasota, FL.  So needless to say, we have no way to go about pressing vinyl records at will...but I believe we've made something here that enough people might want that it could just pop into existence and validate everything we've been working for, living our dreams in the Sarasota Music Scene.  Oh yeah, if we reach our goal, we'll be able to take a few records with us on our tour with The Terror Pigeon Dance Revolt! and show the world what's brewing in South Florida.

This is a record you can put on for friends or at a party and people will smile and dance!  Obsess over blistering musical saw riffs!  Sing along to your favorite chorus!

Have you ever bought a new vinyl record for $15?  This isn't a 7" single, its a full seven track EP on 10"...and its going to be made of GLOW-IN-THE-DARK material and it only costs $15!!!!  Plus, we cooked up a bunch of crazy rewards that will keep us busy, doing the things we're supposed to be doing, and it will help us connect with the people who care (you!!) and, now here's the big trick:  once we send out all of the records and extra shirts and thank you's...all that stuff will exist in the world and the only way we were driven to such insane lengths was because somebody said they cared for it and it might be something worth doing.  Seriously, I'm going to tear up.  This would be a huge push forward.

Cats in the Basement is Greg Ferris, Michael Murphy, Bryan Beardsley, and Patrick Lynch.  Significant visual contributions from Jen Nugent!  We recorded with Neil Parsons @ Science Studios (and you should too!) and guest musicians on the album include Erin Murphy and Greg Bortnichak AKA Bard & Mustache.  Promotional video by Stephanie Rischard.  Photo by Van Jazmin.
