5.0 out of 5 stars "It's all up in the attic" by Receder 12 May 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Definitely different and, as others have said, a bit ramshackle and unstructured. It's a mixture of madrigal singers, primary school recorder groups and the Buzzcocks. Along the way to the student ball it also meets up with Belle and Sebastian. It took me a few plays but taking it as a whole I love it. There are some great songs with lovely clean and almost naive harmonies like "Cookie O jesus" and "On Your Special Day" and some belters like "Itsuko Got Married". There are also one or two songs that are harmless and a bit weak - "Diagonal Girl" and the intro which is reminiscent of the worst "Yes" indulgences.
As a first cd this is great and shows lots of potential. I would like to hear a bit less ramshackle since I dont think they would suffer from a bit of tightening up. I'm looking forward to their next one and along with John Peel watching their progress.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cat Spectacular does what it says in the title 21 April 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Bearsuit are six-piece indie pop collective from Norwich, which borrows from various artists in the student indie-pop genre, mixing together somewhat random electronica and pretty harmonies. However there’s something about their debut long player, which grabs your attention from the moment you hear the first note. It’s not that its original, it certainly has been done before, The general mishmash of different instruments a la belle and Sebastian and the somewhat punk attitude behind their indie boy girl pop, which makes this album a great discovery. With the help of sister band Hyper Kinako, who made one of the most influential debut singles of last year and KaitO Producer and Magoo Bassist Owen Turner have brought to life this somewhat unimaginable mix.
Fortunately for Bearsuit, they have overcome the genre’s major flaw of creating pretty but ultimately forgettable songs and have put together a twelve-track album filled with a selection of effortlessly hummable songs. Their rich melodies, varied arrangements and wide selection of instruments always gives you something new to listen to, whether it is one of the faster spurts of engeretic pop or the downbeat electronica. Sometimes it sounds rather ramshackle, but you somewhat think that is the aim of the bands sound.
Cat Spectacular opens with a rather strange introduction, and keeps to the meaning of the word, with two Japanese voices introducing the band by name, before breaking into a chilled drum and flute based choral arrangement. But that fortunately doesn’t last long, as “Cookie O Jesus” opens with its custom Ramshackle array of brass and guitars going up against one another, backed by the pleasant boy girl harmonies and shouts which continue throughout the album.
