The M-Machine or how hollow is the cat empire

M Machine 01

Got an email tip from Owen about this company called squidfire.com and I really like their stuff. This t-shirt is called Machine, the idea is that the mice are really pulling the strings of the cat people. This reminds me of a couple of things, first that this is the exact premise of the Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy, and therefore this t-shirt could be considered a tribute to Douglas Adams. Secondly it reminds me of an amazing band I just heard about called The Cat Empire, I particularly like this song called “The Lost Song”. I should be seeing this band next week when I go to the Glastonbury festival in England, posting may be a little light the next couple of weeks.

    I’ve been a huge fan of SquidFire for a while; I really like Kevin Sherry’s naively cute style. His ‘My Octopi’ is still one of my favorite t-shirts, even after over two years.

    I LOVE the Cat Empire!

    They’re from Australia (where I live) but I’ve never gotten to hear them live. I’ve watched a concert of them on tv before and they’re AWESOME. I’ve got one of their cds but I reckon they sound better live :D

    I hope you blog about how it went!

    I sure will, i’m getting ready to leave in a minute. I’ve looked at the program and it looks like the cat empire are going on at the same time as the headline act, The Arctic Monkeys :-( Who I also really want to see. Maybe if the AM suck i’ll head over to catch the end of The Cat Empire.

    Cheers!
