THIS IS OUR MUSIC: Look Blue Go Purple – “Cactus Cat”.
Formed in 1983, Look Blue Go Purple perfected their songcraft beneath a record shop in Dunedin. Taking influence from the likes of The Raincoats and The Slits, Look Blue Go Purple may now be a long way removed from the Dunedin scene, but renewed interest in the band has seen them search the archives and compile a wonderful collection of their output.
The band have dug out the video for Cactus Cat, lifted from their 1986 release, LBGPEP2. Cactus Cat serves as a fine reminder of what a great band Look Blue Go Purple were; gorgeous, complex harmonies, sweet jangling guitars and spluttering, primal drum beats.
