Tessy Records complete list (* = still on wholesale)

*Tessy CD 208 The Cadcatz Rockabilly Trio: Story of Remembers
(5 Tracks, slimcase -- trades as 1/2 CD)
was planned as an 45 exclusive for the Remembers Rock'n'Roll Club to celebrate 31 years with 2 new self penned songs from the Cadcatz (sure they decided it, while celebrating 30 years together).
After all was said and done the Club found out, that most members don't have a record player anymore and prefered a CD Single.
As I hate 2 track CD singles, I persuaded the band to look in their archives for some unreleased tracks and they found 3 great Live recordings from the 90s that was never planned to issue. So here you have the chance to hear them live on CD for the very first time!
If you're not familiar with the band, they started as Cadcatz Sun Quartett and played at the big munich festival at Theatherfabrik in 1986, having a self released EP in 1989 with 2 tracks also re-released on the great Rockhouse Neo Rockabillly Story series (LP/CD) before signed to Tessy Records. Also had later releases on Part and Cherokee records.
