Two Cats in Suits - Episode 186
Two Cats in Suits is a subset of The Last Conspirators. The Last Conspirators third album, A Celebration of Fury, is the followup to their critically acclaimed Warparty and When It All Comes Down releases. All Music Guide calls the Last Conspirators "a powerful rock & roll band whose sound fuses old-school punk, roots rock, and heartland rock, with fierce, often politically charged lyrics on top. The Last Conspirators are fronted by singer and songwriter Tim Livingston a pioneering figure on the punk scene in New York State's Hudson Valley." Nippertown says; "Tim Livingston excels at writing hook-laden, politically charged paeans to pop culture, and his commando team play it rough and crunchy on the band's powerhouse sophomore disc; the follow-up to band's 2007 full-length debut "War Party" - gets pretty close to capturing the energy of their live shows, and if the New York Dolls played sixties psychedelic pop, this is what it would all sound like. Potent stuff." The Big Takeover Magazine weighs in; "A five-song follow-up to Warparty, this equally potent recording hints these guys are not only are on to something good, they're just getting started. Fronted by Upstate NY punk legend, Tim Livingston (whose credits go back to Killed-By-Death style Albany punks, the Morons), the band fills the same sonic space as the Clash, Adverts, Ruts, Stiff Little Fingers and New Model Army. If you want to know where the real songwriters in punk are this day and age, look no further." Warparty, a set of old-school rock & roll protest songs, was called by the Times Union " The most potent politically charged disc of the year, walking the tightrope between punk passion and polished professionalism." The Big Turn Over Magazine said: "I hear Love, '60s blues rock balladry, ballsy post-punk mashers like 80s Australians, and dexterous guitars that prove ballast for Livingston's burning convictions like "American Son" and our in-foreclosure U.S. of "Innocent". Harp Magizine called it: "incisive and poetic; overall an engaging album ", while CHRONOGRAM said: "a quartet that brings a welcome, Information Age crunch to the tough, melodic sounds of late '70s/early '80s Brit-punk; think The Clash, The Jam, maybe The Ruts or the UK Subs, but with slightly glossier production values and lyrics that take shots at the soul-sucking, high-tech Noughties." Garage and Beat Magazine concurs, "60s psychedelia and '70s punk rage permeate this eclectic mix of angst rattled modern rock." The band's live shows are emotional, high-energy affairs and so far they have showcased at such venues as; the Mercury Lounge in NYC, Maxwells in NJ, Club Helsinki and various Upstate New York clubs & festivals. They have shared the stage with the The Blasters, Shonen Knife, Mike Watt, New Model Army, Hamell On Trial, Echoes & Shadows, and the Murder Junkies. The Last Cons have been played on radio stations; WFMU, WEQX, WVCR, WVKR, WRPI, WEXT, WSPN and have been featured on Strummerville DIY, Goldie's Garage on Sirius XM (Genya Ravan's show),WAMC's Performance Place, CRUMBS Radio, Capital Underground Radio, Babylon Street Radio, Maximum Threshold Radio and Kaleidoscope.
