Bobkat '65- This Lonely Road CD. Bobkat ’65 are a potent reminder that innovative rock ‘n roll bands can come from any corner of the world. Hailing from the northern Spanish province of Asturias, Bobkat ‘65 have that magical combination of great hooks, raw production and pure talent. It’s always great to hear a new band from the other side of the world do their take on 60’s garage rock and Bobkat ‘65 do it better than most. The album’s unifying themes center around loneliness and desperation and the songs range in style from upbeat moody ballads to beat-pounding, punk-tinged rants influenced by well-known ’60s Garage bands like The Dovers, Billy & The Kids, The Nightcrawlers, and Thursday’s Children and all delivered with BOBKAT ’65’s unique take on garage rock. An all-around sizzlin’ slab from a band I can’t get enough of. Recommended.
