February 23rd, 2013
To be released 26 February 2013 is KatzKab’s album “Objet No. 1″. This female fronted electro-punk-cabaret act rose from the ashes of the late Parisian band Katzenjammer Kabarett. Suitably described by its label Projekt Records as being ‘somewhere between the B52s, Soft Cell and Lena Lovich’ the band’s album will be released on CD in a 6 panel DigiPak.
You can stream/buy the album on the Projekt Records Bandcamp page. Recommended release.
For the petite histoire, Katzenjammer Kabarett was a 4-piece dark cabaret band from Paris, France. Aesthetically inspired by German Weimar-era cabarets and burlesque shows, the band also chose a name of German origin that literally translates to “cat’s wail cabaret” with Katzenjammer also generally meaning “discordant sound” and being used as a synonym for a hangover. Other stylistic influences ranged from Dadaism, Futurism and Symbolism to Postmodernism.
