If ever there were a band tailor made for the lo-fidelity mush of cassette tape, Catholic Spray is it. This psyched-out Parisian rock act has a dirty, decadent sound that’s shot them to the apex of the garage punk scene, along with bands like Crash Normal, Destination Lonely, and Teenage Moonlight. This group of bands has picked up speed over the last two years, and the members in Catholic Spray have led the rally; they’re forming a loose collective, with members also playing in trashy rock bands like Zyklon Beach and Strange Odd Mysteries.
Noisey found the band, aged between 21 and 25, in their rehearsal space making a noise that made our ears bleed. We headed up to the Gambetta to watch them play an out-of-tune show to a crowd more interested in fighting each other. Predictably, it was brilliant.
