Pet Cat are a DIY noise pop three piece from Reading. Begun as a solo project in 2011 by Ali, it turned into a full band after Liam and Will from the group Toddlers joined the next year. They released their first ep " Wires" in late 2012 on cassette and digitally with local label doubledotdash!? It gained the attention of BBC 6's Tom Ravenscroft, who played a track from the tape every night in all but one of his shows as he sat in for a week in place of Gideon Coe. Since then they have been playing as many shows as they can get - in between a line up change, with Phil taking over from Will on bass after he left and unplanned downtime due to illness on Ali's behalf. Now recovered, they have spent the past year working on new material and are set to release a record later this year. For fans of Sonic Youth/Dinosaur Jr/MBV/Deerhunter.
