Inspired by her fathers impeccable record collection (The Velvets, Neil Young, Pavement) Cate
Le Bon packed her things and began gigging extensively across the UK, releasing singles and
a Welsh language EP (Edrych Yn Llygaid Ceffyl Benthyg) on the Indie Record label Peski.
Her unique voice and style caught the attention of Super Furry Animals front man Gruff Rhys
who roped Cate into his hip hop exchange program Neon Neon. What began as a guest vocal
appearance on their debut single, “I Lust You,” resulted in a year of touring the world as part of
Cate re-entered the studio in 2011 after touring to start work on a new record of her own. Drawing
on her experiences of the last year, Cate has created a collection of pop nuggets imbued with the
playfulness of Faust and Syd Barrett and the tropical melodies of Os Mutantes. Existential word
play abounds and fuzz fused guitar lines tear through like an angry bee in a can, due in the US
via The Control Group label in early 2012. “Puts Me To Work” is the first single from that record.
