The Lounge Kittens Release New Video. Wednesday 19th April 2017
Taken from their debut album ‘Sequins & C-Bombs’, released last year on Grweat Records, The Lounge Kittens have selected Usher’s ultimate club banger ‘Yeah’ for their latest video offering.
Taking on the roles of Usher, Lil’ John and Ludacris the video sees the girls raising the roof of London’s legendary Dingwalls venue, transforming it into a sizzling hot nightclub with the help of some of their most dedicated fans. During their hugely successful PledgeMusic campaign, Kitten fans were given the chance to be in one of their now infamous videos; a chance which they relished. “The fans were AMAZING.” says Jen, Red Kitten.“We weren’t sure what to expect after giving them the brief but they did not disappoint. They threw themselves into everything we asked them to with typical C-Bomb Squad attitudes – just awesome.”
“Yeah was always going to get the TLK video treatment,” says Blue Kitten, Timia. “It’s such a stand out track for us as we love singing Ludacris’ filthy rap. It’s so challenging to perform live. But the video was a great excuse to mix things up again and try out a different style, particularly when it came to our characters. It was a real pleasure to dance about in trainers without a stiletto in sight!”
The Lounge Kittens head out on their ‘Bringing Up The Rear’ tour tomorrow. See them live at:

Of The Month - October 2016 - The Beards
The Beards - Sadly all good things must come to an end and this year see’s everyone’s favourite Australian Bearded rockers The Beards calling it a day, the band who formed back in 2005 have made a career of singing about Beards and in the ten years they have been together as a band they have toured constantly and released 4 studio albums titled ‘The Beards’, ‘Beards, Beards, Beards’, ‘Having A Beard Is The New Not Having A Beard’, ‘The Beards Album’ and also the most recent greatest hits ‘Ten Long Years, One Long Beard’ and every song on these albums is about beards.
Back at the start of the year the band announced that they were calling it a day and frontman Johann Beardraven had this to say “We feel like we've achieved what we set out to achieve through music, everybody now agrees that beards are great, so the time has come for us to rest on our laurels. But not before we go around one last time and say a heartfelt thankyou to everyone who's come out to see us over the years, and especially to everyone who's grown a beard, or adopted a pro-beard attitude.”
The band have spent the majority of the year touring across Australia saying a final farewell to their homebound fans and now the band are currently touring across mainland Europe before saying a final farewell to their UK fans in the middle of October and it is the perfect time to see the band on the live circuit as not only is it a farewell tour but the band will also be playing two jam-packed sets of bearded anthems from their impressive back catalogue, incorporating both the stripped-back acoustic sound that helped them gain radio play in Australia, and the infectious pop-rock that has won them a legion of fans worldwide.
The Beards are much-loved by audiences around the world for their refreshingly original concept, highly-interactive live shows and trademark sense of humour. Don't miss this hugely-entertaining Aussie phenomenon's victory lap of Europe this October.
