Cat SFX are back, and they’re fucked off. As their fifth release on Alan McGee’s It’s Creation Baby, this ain’t their first Rodeo by any means. But for those who’ve been following Cat SFX‘s evolution to date, their latest is perhaps Cat’s most exhilarating and outspoken instalment yet. The single will be released on the 25th February, it’s a track that breaks conventions like Bikini Kill, seethes like Veruca Salt and slams like Sleater-Kinney in full-flight. Rodeo is a white-knuckle ride of no-nonsense punk rock and nihilistic rage. As allegations of corruption flood our news feeds day-in, day-out with endless predictability, Rodeo sees Cat SFX getting on their soapbox to say: enough is enough.

Chiming with the themes of change and revolution, the striking cover art for Rodeo was shot by Alun Davies at The Onllwyn Miners Welfare in South Wales. A pivotal location in the Miners’ Strike of 1984, the venue became famous for the funds it raised as the “Lesbians and Gays support Miners” group’s HQ. The latest in a formidable run of singles, Rodeo follows on from the sassy punk-rock strut of Upside Down, the electrifying post-punk thrash of the Reunite, the electronic skewered fizz of debut single Doom Generation, plus the stadium-sized All The Money In The World.
