Digger & the Pussycats
"Sometimes a band comes

world’s premier garage festival, Gonerfest in Memphis 2007. The festival
coincided with a successful 6 week tour of the USA and South Korea.
The first half of 2008 was
also busy for the Pussycats, releasing both a new studio album “let’s Go To
Hospital” and a Europe-only live LP “Bad Reception. Following yet another smash
and grab 7 week tour of
Europe, the boys kissed each other goodbye for eight months as Andy
unsuccessfully tried to join a post-rock band in
