Club Soul Volume 3 The Catacomb Various Artists CD

 

"The CATS was unusual in that it was a second floor club. You went up a couple of short flights of stairs from street level, through a grubby wooden door, down the corridor, through the arch into almost total darkness and blistering heat. Its passageways were smoke-filled with an odd sense of forboding and naughtiness. There was nothing glamorous about The Cats. The Sounds hit you like a ton of dynamite and stayed with you. You remembered what you heard at The Cats. We took what had gone before, what was happening now, and set the template for what was to follow at at The Torch, Wigan and beyond, and it's still following today!"  Basil, (former Catacombs DJ)
