    Concerts: Cats In Space, Jimi Anderson Group; Glasgow Oran Mor 9th May 2019
    Concert Reviews

    It could have been with heavy heart that Cats In Space fans trudged through the unseasonably cold and wet Glasgow evening to see the band on their Narnia tour; the news that singer Paul Manzi would soon be leaving his feline chums to take up the role of keyboard player/singer in The Sweet only just having settled in. Cats In Space however were here to celebrate, here to lift the mood and here to quite simply have a great time. With three albums under their belts CiS also have a plethora of thumping, pumping, retro-humping 70s styled anthems at their disposal. However, tonight’s early festivities were brought to us from a different time in musical history, the Jimi Anderson Group thoroughly and rather expertly fixated on the 80s. Stepping into the wardrobe of time was Sea of Tranquility’s Steven Reid.
