SNAFU’s 11 finely crafted songs, full of rock’n’roll attitude were produced by Dave Draper, with Paul Cook and Tom Spencer co-producing. The album is an aural treat, with no calculated image or reliance on nostalgia.
To call it the classic line up does The Wildhearts an injustice as one of the ‘classic’ line ups saw Scott Sorry on bass, delivering the last studio album the band produced to great critical acclaim.
“We needed to use every part of our fucking bodies to make this work, if it’s there a spare appendage, I’m sure if we had got more rehearsal we would have been beating stuff with our dicks to get extra sounds out”

Chris Catalyst is certainly a busy man. Sunday night saw him perform a solo acoustic set at The Borderline, rapidly followed by a set with C.J. Wildheart at the same gig.
