Catscars: I Wish I Had


The theory that recessions bring out the best in starvings artists and musicians is being held onto desperately by most culture vultures now more than ever. Maybe it’s our last hope, that instead of the cuts in funding and lack of income to be made, perhaps it will somehow provide something for art to respond to – surely music that says nothing has reached it’s saturation point (I’m willing myself not to list some examples emanating from this country but that just wouldn’t be productive). If the recession and financial hardship proves to be a source of inspiration and motivation then sooner rather than later Ireland is in for a landslide of genuinely exciting and enthralling artists, from the Box Social scene, Catscars may just be on the frontline of this wave. Their album Construction was released last month on White Plague Records, you can stream the album from the fantastic Swear I’m Not Paul.
