It's the sound you'd imagine when you see the needle fall, when you hear the scratch of the record. A sound that combines the raw noise and energy of 60's garage rock with the melodic and less abrasive nature of modern indie rock. A sound that harkens back to an era in which rock and roll came from groups of friends coming together to learn how to accomplish something, not as individuals, but as a band. It's a sound that The Basement Cats, a group from Western Massachusetts, have been perfecting over their time together. This sound, coupled with The Basement Cats' entertaining live performance, results in a band that proves that, even in our modern age where trends come and go, rock and roll will never die.
