The Sainte Catherines – Fire Works Manifesto Magazine Review

Punk Rockers, The Sainte Catherines is released LP ‘Fire Works’ the Sunderland label, Big Ugly Fish Recordings. This review may seem a little unusual considering their only relation to the North East is the label, I decided to do a little research into the Montreal based band and from what I have heard this release has assumed a slower sound and energy than their previous 3 releases. You get a sense of the bands growth into old age punk with this release, not that that’s a bad thing, we all have to roll with the clock and The Sainte Catherines appear to have adapted their style with ease, retaining their blaring guitars whilst a more reflective approach has broadened their sound and with it their appeal. There is a range of influences evident in the LP with the likes of Kiss and even a little New York Dolls all jumping out, however the sound is firmly their own and one that makes me happy to call this lot adopted mackems.Source: Manifesto Magazine
