|BUT 2 OUT OF 3 AIN'T BAD|
As part of the Bammies, Hepcat also took park in the Southern California Awards show held in late January. Thanks to DeeDee for sending us a review of it, we can present to everyone a brief account of what took place that night. Tickets were only $8, included many local bands and Hepcat played 12 songs for close to one hour and as DeeDee describes it, "They tried mixing old and new songs to introduce the crowd to the songs. It was mostly an industry crowd, many had never heard of them before, let alone seen them at shows. The crowd really liked them though." Thanks again to DeeDee for sharing this information with us!

If you simply can't wait to hear new material from Hepcat before their new album comes out, have no fear! Alex Desert is featured on some of the tracks off of Jump With Joey's newest album on Will Records, entitled "Swingin' Ska Goes South Of The Border." The album is supposed to be out in stores on March 23rd, so look for this new one by Joey Altruda and the rest of the gang!
Thanks to another Hepcat fan Rijk van Kooij, we have more information on the new David Hillyard and the Rocksteady Seven album. David was of course once a saxophonist for Hepcat, but then left to join such acts as The Slackers, and now he's branched off into a solo project. The new album entitled "Playtime," features Greg Lee on vocals on "The Fool" and Alex Desert on vocals on "Angry Lady." Also Hillyard does a remake of "Skavez", the song he wrote for Hepcat's first album "Out Of Nowhere." The album should be out now everywhere and is on Hellcat Records.
