Beast Records are proud to reissue "Watch Yr Back" (initialy released on P Trash Rds in 2005)! Do you really need to know a bit more about Digger and The Pussycats?
The band started as a bit of a joke, a way to pass time after their previous band Fort Mary split up, and to allow Sam and Andy to continue playing shows around their home city of Melbourne while searching for a new bass player. The first few shows saw the band playing a mix of original songs and covers, with audiences taking a warming to the crazy and most-often shambolic live shows, and eventually led to a strong following in Melbourne. In late 2003 Digger & The Pussycats signed to Melbourne’s Spooky Records, home of The Beasts Of Bourbon, Spencer P Jones, Hugo Race, The Devastations and The Drones, releasing their debut album “Young, Tight and Alright” in November of that year (also reissued on Beast Rds in 2009).
Upon releasing this album the band began touring extensively through Australia, and by mid-2004 Digger & The Pussycats had completed their first full European/UK tour. Further national Australian tours followed, as well as a week of shows in New Zealand before the band recorded and released their second album “Watch Yr Back” early in 2005. Following a national tour, Digger & The Pussycats once again packed their bags for a European tour which began in May 2005. With interest coming from all corners of the continent, it wasn’t until November 2005 that the tour came to an end, having included more than 80 shows in thirteen different countries.
Thanks to Beast Records "Watch Yr Back" is no more sold out and available again on vinyl!
