Biography

At the halfway point of Lisbon, the sixth studio album by esteemed rock band The Walkmen, front man Hamilton Leithauser sings, “Victory, right beside me / Victory, should be mine.” Arguably the album’s sonic climax, the chorus also serves as an appropriate mission statement for a band on the receiving end of so much admiration but so many false starts.

Editorial Reviews

During John Lennon's separation from Yoko Ono in 1974 Lennon romped around L.A. with his new buddy, Harry Nilsson. In the midst of the party, Lennon and Nilsson, along with friends Ringo Starr, Keith Moon and a rag-tag gang of others, headed into the studio with Lennon as producer. The result was Pussy Cats, a fascinating and often misunderstood album featuring a mix of classics and originals rearranged by Nilsson and Lennon to suit the wild mood of those most infamous days. The Walkmen started talking about how it would be fun to try to recreate Pussy Cats - after all, it is the great "buddy" record of the '70s - a celebration of Rock & Roll. A team of friends was recruited, including four additional lead singers, a string quartet, a saxophone player, an upright bass player and 41 backup singers later to be named The Saturday Night Marcata and the results are presented here.

This is not meant to be a major artistic statement. The Walkmen had already released an official album in 2006, "A Hundred Miles Off". This was just a fun record for the band to put together as their private studio, Mercata, was closing. It's comparable to Camper Van Beethoven's take on Fleetwood Mac's Tusk. No, it's not a great record, but it's pretty fun and crazy and interesting to listen to. As always, Hamilton Leithauser is a truly unique and exciting vocalist, and the band does manage at times to capture its usual otherworldly atmospherics. Buy it used. It's worth it.

I wouldn't even give a Britney Spears album "one star." There are probably only one or two albums in existence for which a one-star rating would be valid. Please check this album out for yourself at Napster or any other free listening site, then maybe actually THINK about what you want to say about spilling garbage all over these pages. Thank you.

Now for my review: "Pussy Cats" may not be the best Walkmen album, but it's up there. This is loose, wild fun-- obviously in keeping with the original sessions on which this album is based. Speaking of the original sessions, the versions here are significantly different from Nilsson's as to make them worth their own separate purchase. Should you need to know anything more, please listen to the album for yourself instead of reading our opinions. It would be an infinitely better use of your time.

Great album-- a very inventive cover of one of the legendary impromptu recording sessions- the lost weekend of Lennon, Nillson, Ringo and Keith Moon. My appreciation for this album deepened hearing the Walkmen play the album, track by track, live. The Walkmen are one of the more dynamic bands out there, consistenly reinterpreting their own material live. Disregard the one negative review that dismisses the album out of hand because it's a cover. Kudos to bands that elect to cover a fairly obscure project, and do it well. Highly recommended!

This was a great album. Obviously a cover, but don't let that bother you. The Walkmen have always had their own way of doing things, and don't really conform to the typical rock albums. It takes effort to listen to their albums, and this is no exception. There were no standards for this album ... it was just FUN. It's SUPPOSED to be derivative -- it's a COVER!

Hello Walkmen fans,
If you are looking at this CD, then you probably have all their other material. Basically, it's just a fun record. You know the story: old studio under the clocking tick of the wrecking ball and nothing else to do but kick out the jams. They obviously had a ball doing this and for that it's worth the high price. The DVD is comical, reminds me of Camper Van Beethoven, and is worth looking at once, if not just for the wicked cover of Loop De Loop.
If you are a new Walkmen fan, shame on you. They've been around far too long to be overlooked. Start with 100 miles and work your way forward; this should be the second to last CD to have.
