The Cat Empire

Anyone outside Oz heard these guys? They're apparently from here even though they have this Blur element to them and the single "Hello" sounds like he is whacking on a fake Mexican accent or something.
They're catchy and totally throw-away and probably something no one would admit to liking so if you hear them and cringe, pretend I never wrote this ok?

But does anyone have a clue where I can download this song "hello"?

They've been described as a few different things, not all good lol. Its not actually pop, nor hiphop, something different. I cant quite describe it. They're slowly getting more airplay here which I predict will turn into a flood too soon and ruin something potentially interesting.
JJJ play them apparently, dunno if you listen to them online at all.

here I is ( been a bit hectic here lately)

Cat Empire- Yes I've been hearing them quite a bit, well the "hello" song anyway. They played at this year's Blues and Roots fest at Byron( I didn't go..) They impressed all and sundry at that event. Our local ABC radio station talks them up. They are a big band I think, lotsa brass and percussion . Something that has caught media attention is their age. They are young, all well under 20 I think .
I dunno , I was listening to that song the other day...at the time, the singer's attempt at an accent was bugging me....it was just a moment, it passed.
They sound like a good time crew and would be good to hear live.
Their name cracks me up...my bro-in-law once started a "chook empire"( he ended up with a "citrus empire" instead).

talking of accents, my hub and the boys were relating a recent "skithouse" skit to me. They did a send up of of Aussie women falling for guys with Irish accents. Did you see it?

I'm liking "The Beautiful Girls" another new Aussie band and "Dallas Crane". Paul Kelly has a new single out too. I heard it on the radio last night
Oi Oi Oi

AcrobatMan, I think it was either you or Bunbury who posted something for an mp3 of theirs. I downloaded it and liked it. I cant remember which song it was though now. Maybe something to do with pineapples? Or was that another band lol...

Thanks Cass! I knew you would have heard of them I think I read somewhere that there were 6 members in the band or something but I had no idea they were that young. Quite impressive. I'd try Kazaa for this song but I've heard too many people get viruses off their so I will have to wait.
Wait for what I dont know...Perhaps just getting sick of hearing it on the wireless lol.

Thanks kids

actually the middle of the night is around 8:30, assuming you take night from 6pm to 12 midnight, which isn't actually a correct term considering what comes after 'midnight' is morning.

I thought Natalie would have you up and at 'em by then. Now daylight saving is with us I wake up at 5 am so it suits me. Rise and shine I just watched their clip ...as I said, goodtime...the old guy in the leopard skin cowboy hat reminded me of Joe O'Herlihy( I usually spell Joe's name incorrectly...sorry).

But more luck if you want to hear some more "Cat Empire"
November is JJJ "Australian Music Month" and starting yesterday, this week's feature album is Cat Empire's eponymus album ( might have spelt that wrong too..self-titled....

oh go on cass, use one of those quick reply smilies. This place has more features than a weekend Sun Herald ..)
but yes, buy the album...tax return? geez, ours is long spent. I'm going to be a gas plumber when I grow up. $300 to have the stove and fridge moved about a metre it's skilled work , so fair enough...although,$300..)

Hello Hello
bye
