The empress makes her rounds, mistress of all cats

In vinyl, You're a kitty! on Thursday, 7 April, 2011 at 0:59

Song: Kitty Empire
Artist: Big Black
Album: Songs About Fucking

I like that beneath the raw, screeching sounds and ostensible cacophony, this is quite a harmless song– it’s about cats! Unless I’m missing an allegory somewhere. It reminds me of a short story my sister and I read as kids, “King of the Cats” or something. It may very well be the origin. For such an abrasive, rough song, I tried to find kitty photos where she looks intimidating or dominant. And this is the best I could come up with. Hmm. Well, in order, she sort of looks mysterious, grumpy, and proud. Not bad for an empress. I now realize I could’ve done “Catnip Dreams”, but there’s always next time.
