The Family Cat - Five Lives Left: The Anthology download album
It is with relief that I am able to report that the vast majority of the tracks included in this anthology have not only stood the test of time, but also are way superior to much of what passes for intelligent, guitar based indie-rock (if I may be forgiven for using that term) today. The Family Cat had the distinction of having three guitarists, so by god they could plaster you to the wall with an onslaught of riffing and feedback when the mood took them.

Title: Five Lives Left: The Anthology. Artist: The Family Cat. Tom Verlaine . UK two CD collection form the amazing yet underappreciated Alt-Rock/Britpop band. Read full description.
The Family Cat were a British independent band, formed in Stoke Newington, London in 1988. Three members were originally from Cornwall, one from Plymouth and one from Southampton. The band played live for five years and recorded three albums, the mini-album Tell 'Em We're Surfin', (produced by The Jam's drummer Rick Buckler ) released on South London independent label Bad Girl Records, and its full-length follow-ups, Furthest from the Sun and Magic Happens, released by Dedicated Records.
Sonic Youth once claimed that The Family Cat were their favourite UK rock band, so it is about time that there was a collection of their finest tracks. Compiled by Paul Frederick (aka Fred) and John Graves this 2CD set tracks the band’s career from the first single, Tom Verlaine, on Bad Girl through to previously unreleased tracks from the abandoned 4th album. All the band’s singles feature including the classic Steamroller, and Colour Me Grey and River Of Diamonds which feature PJ Harvey on backing vocals
