Catfish is Canada's answer to the Red Hot Chili Peppers. "Viciously Deliecious" is chock-full of funky rhythems and wailing guitar figures. Call it punk/funk, if you will, but that's not all for the acoustic "Masochist" and the semi-ballad "Marigold" help ease the tension which surrounds so much else of this album. And just for fun, they cover the Rolling Stones' "Miss You" with great accuracy, right down to the Jaggeresque vocals. If you don't mind a band that wears its influences on its sleeve, then Catfish is for you.
