Cats In Space released one of 2015’s finest albums, a real treat for lovers of 70’s themed rock and pop from the likes of ELO, 10CC, Pilot and 90’s cult band Jellyfish.
The song ‘Only In Vegas’ is written by guitarist Greg Hart and 10cc’s Mick Wilson.
Greg Hart says: “Initially the track was a light acoustic romp that Mick Wilson and I agreed could possibly fill a gap as a bonus song, maybe perhaps as an album track. However, as in many cases in the studio, a song sometimes grows on its own and becomes something much more. Dean Howard laid down some amazing ‘Joe Walsh style’ guitar, which kinda lit the blue touch paper, and the Cats wall of sound was once again implemented!
“At the end everyone was insisting this had to be a single. Who was I to argue? After all, it hit all the 70s iconic themes that I loved as a kid. It does in my opinion benchmark the fact that us Cats like to have fun sunny songs as well as the Gothic sinister epics in the Cat repertoire.
“We all need happy tunes in our lives, and this for us is the ideal song to play on a Summers day with the roof down as you blast along the motorways pretending it’s 1976, but respecting the national speed limits at all times of course..!”
