Kristmas Kittens

Local stalwarts the Livid Kittens have been making some kind of rock-oriented racket for a long time now. Combining elements of hard rock, punk, goth, glam, and surf — and filtering it through the rabid vocals of lead kitten Paige Harvey — the unit's sitting on its latest slab (and fifth effort), The Diamond-Cutter Sessions. What you have here are four Kittens originals: the bawdy one-two punch of "She Calls Me Daddy" and "Cock" tearing it up as openers, followed by the truckin' of "Showgirl Hips" and "Undertow" before closing with a fucking brilliant rendition of Motörhead's "Ace of Spades" (where yours truly believes ole Lemmy's given a run for his money). In any case, this disc is a good way to get your holiday jollies. Though an even better way is to catch the Kittens at Saturday's "Rock 'n' Roll Christmas Party."
