The Catalysts

ARTIST / BAND: The Catalysts

SONG (MP3): Goes On Forever

FILE UNDER: Pop / Folk Rock / Psychedelic

LABEL: spirophone

INFO: Ulric Kennedy formed The Catalysts in 1985 but the band, whose early demos sounded like the Sarah EP that never was, failed to realise its potential, as Ulric's role as bassist in The Golden Dawn took precedence soon afterwards.
He revived the band in the mid-90s, almost, but not quite, winning the annual Electric Honey deal which shot Belle and Sebastian to instant cult status.
As of 2006, The Catalysts are back once more, following up the original EP, finally released by Félicité Singles Club in 2004, with a second - Long Distance - which can currently be heard in demo form on the band's MySpace page.
