ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Flat Cat started as a side project of Atlanta musician Chuck Brittain (guitarist with "The Cogburns" & "The Cherry Bomb" and formerly of "The Sexual Side Effects") as an avenue for his original songs. Since its inception in 2007, the band has mutated to the super talented current line-up with Chuck sharing singing and writing credits with Bucky Motter (Bass), a gender queer performing songwriter and rocker. Bucky is a veteran of the Atlanta music scene with two critically acclaimed CD's and has opened for such artists as BB King, Indigo Girls, and the Manhattan Transfer. Amy "Catfish" Rollinson (from the rollerderby-themed band "Tricksy" and fronts the Joan Jett cover band "The Cherry Bomb") has stepped up her musical chops and now helps front Flat Cat with her amazing scream, crunchy guitar sound, and lyric creativity. Rounding out the talented new line-up is Clay McClure (drummer from "The Sexual Side Effects") who has taken the band from the straight forward 4/4 to a new rhythmic high and a new direction.
"Artbreak Hotel" evolved over a 2 year period of shows, rehearsals, bizarre conversation topics that developed over veggie burgers , and eavesdropping on party conversations. The instrument and drums tracks were recorded "live" in the studio with few overdubs, and most guitars are exactly what you hear coming out of our amps. The band also chose to stay away from all the "fancy" vocal effects and pitch modulations and let the listener hear the emotion in our words - which sometimes shows our imperfections . Think about it...shouldn't rock and roll be about attitude....not perfection? "Artbreak Hotel" started with 4 very diverse musicians who came together as friends, and walked out of the studio as a band.
