CD: Mr Cat & The Jackal - Sins and Siren Songs

Rating: 4/5

If you don’t know Mr Cat & The Jackal’s music you’re missing out – their folky, theatrical sound and live over-the-top antics are fun.

Avid fans of the SA five-piece band will be glad to have much-loved tracks such as The Rain Came Pouring and The Spawn of Pirates on CD at last.

Another highlight is the ­album sleeve which resembles a story booklet. Very cool!
