Hands Down album, which I shared a couple years back. In that entry I remember making a comparison to REM, a no-name band from Athens, GA, which is also where the Kilkenny Cats were based. "Attractive Figure" saunters along a trajectory none-too-dissimilar from the Feelies, albeit with meaner guitars. The flip, "Of Talk" is even more engaging suggesting that the Cats were informed of what their west coast contemporaries the Dream Syndicate had been up to. Ultimately, the band may be best remembered for their appearance in the 1987 Athens, GA Inside/Out rockumentary. Not a bad way to be immortalized if you ask me.
