Cato Salsa Experience, an energetic garage-trio from Oslo, understood they were indeed big in Japan this summer. They were swamped by screaming teenage-girls and fans pleading for autographs. One of the band members called home to his girlfriend in Norway saying: I can’t wait to get back to Norway and get my ego adjusted, it’s crazy down here!
Hopefully they have had a few weeks to cool off now, and are good and ready for their upcoming U.S.-tour.
This time they will tour with Swedish rock band The Soundtrack of Our Lives (SOOL) who have been thoroughly hyped in the UK after playing support for Oasis this summer.
- Soundtrack of Our Lives is one of the greatest rock bands ever! proclaimed the Gallagher brothers after the end of the tour.
Hopefully the hype will follow them over the Atlantic and maybe some of it will rub off on Cato Salsa - if they need it at all. The band released their debut album, ”A Good Tip for a Good Time”, eighteen months ago in Norway, and their fun, psychedelic garage-rock sat well with both audiences and critics. Their album is distributed in the US by Emperor Norton and is licensed to Sony in Asia. Here is the list of the venues Cato Salsa Experience and SOOL will play in November:
