Singles Going Single #21 - Catherine 7" (1991, Limited Potential)

Talk about precocious. According to the back cover of this single, Billy Corgan is given a co-production credit, in 1991, the same year Smashing Pumpkins released their debut LP, Gish! Billy may have moved up through the ranks at a breakneck pace, but Chicago's Catherine could barely garner a following outside the Windy City. Featured here are two longish nuggets of swirling noise pop, not unlike fellow Illinoisans, Hum down the road in Champaign. Catherine would go onto record an ep and two full lengths, including the very Pumpkin-esque Sorry! in '94. I don't hasten to mention that drummer Kerry Brown was in fact married to Darcy of the Pumpkins. Keep on the lookout for Catherine's Sleepy ep to appear on these pages in the relatively near-future. As the band's motto goes, "better living through noise!"
