Batwings Catwings In The Press

“Perhaps the most chaotic music you can possibly dance to.” – L.A. Record

“Cacophonous blend of posturing post punk bass lines, obnoxiously grating vocals and oddball synths merging droney rock with doomy vocals and a fun party vibe that ultimately melts into a wavey synth dance attack...” –  Artrocker

“This troupe is fierce and friendly, punk and refined, happy and angry and all those contradictions that add up to the rock n’ roll spirit.” –20jazzfunkgreats


About Batwings Catwings

Amidst the blood, cocaine, and Botox soaked tapestry of Los Angeles, the members of Batwings Catwings hail from all over the US and converge upon the wasteland of Southern California to give underground dwellers a reason to shake and sweat. Comprised of members from some of L.A.’s most distinctive DIY bands (TPF!, Puppy Dog, Luna Is Honey), Batwings Catwings is cutting a path for themselves straight through the high dollar hustle of Hollywood to the art galleries and punk houses that are known by only the most discerning ears.

Batwings Catwings is fronted by the tiny, yet fierce dance commander Dana Poblete, an everygirl with the ability to entrance audiences from Los Angeles to the hell mouths of Mexico’s border towns with her frenetic energy and deceptively powerful howl.  Backing her is guitarist and UCLA professor Pepper Glass, a master of the squelch who wields his axe with the devastating accuracy of his feared red correction pen.   On the drums is L.A. blogger Clay Johnson, who cut his teeth drumming for about every metal band on the northern Midwest’s arctic front.  The newest member, Josh Crampton rounds out the lineup on bass, diversifying the sound even further with his sexy funk and shoegaze influences.

January 11, 2011 signifies the release of Batwings Catwings’ first EP, “Peacock Collection”, released digitally by IndianGold Records.  Recorded at L.A.’s famous Infrasonic Studios by Daniel Haworth and engineered by Pete Lyman (No Age, Best Coast, Abe Vigoda), “Peacock Collection” is a totem of modernist punk – noisy as hell with a tinge of pop and a nod to the punk rock roots of the L.A. underground.
