Pete McRae lead guitar virtuoso, Dennis Peters on bass and vocals, and Al Galles on drums and vocals constitute a flashy group of instrumentalists, laying down tightly structured backing patterns complete with jazzy jitterbug rhythms. Freddy Moore, a first-rate singer who punctuates his solid gutsy vocal delivery with earthy growls, is complimented by his brother Bobbyzio's unbridled passion on saxophone. The Kats uniqueness is largely the result of their engaging concept -- an individual appropriately named Freddy, an underdog or in this case an underKat. Buoyed by the band's good-natured rock 'n' roll vibes, the song pattern evolved into a rock opera of sorts. The theme is so subtly presented that Moore's lyrics do not seem contrived, unlike many rock concepts. The songs don't serve up a plot per se but each number ties into the next, Freddy's problems continually crop up throughout the record.
"An unrecognized pop masterpiece. Hopefully it will get the exposure it deserves." - P. Mihelcic
