Katmaz ‘Alone (with me)’

For Katmaz’s latest single, ‘Alone (with me)’, the music video was shot in the middle of McCarren Park, in the middle of Williamsburg, the Brooklyn neighbourhood in the centre of New York City’s independent rock music scene. Seems only fitting for someone who is building up for himself a reputation as one of New York’s most enterprising young independent artists.

Founding Member Of The Lunachicks Went To Rancho De La Luna With One Of The English Beat, And A Punk From DC, To Make A Record With The Beloved Dave Catching: Here’s What They Told Us

The group has a varied background, including world tours, political activism, and criminal records, but the band itself comes together in a union of Punk with a DIY ethic, to share the love and angst. Song topics include drugs, emotional turmoil, day to day struggles, and politics – a mixed bag, making the group an interesting one to get to know. Lisa had a chat with Dirtycakes to see what makes them tick.
