Sober – Katie the Pest

I don’t trust my ability to predict these things myself, so take this knowing that, but Katie the Pest could have been huge if they had come maybe five years later than they did. Five summers later. It is probably not only timing that kept them where they are. Publicists and that essential air of cool i don’t get also factor into this. And also their willingness to be more than the band they wanted to be. They should have been huge, or at least bigger than what they were and still are. I would much rather have them have a share of the distinction than a lot of the bands that did. I don’t mean to push them into a wave they were not apart of – the drowning in reverb, summer slacker/stoner guitar pop wave of a few years past – but even though they weren’t, they were its best band.

Sober – Katie the Pest

This band was infuriatingly too small. Oh wait, they’ve reformed. Still too small. Anyway, earlier last decade, while playing catch up with all that Slumberland and similar stuff from earlier the decade before, i stumbled on to Katie the Pest, they then becoming THE synchronal band for me in my time of all that type of music. Their album, This Giant Will Kill You, was exactly what i was looking to immerse myself in and call my very own at that time. And look i did. For so long.

While content with the mp3s that i kept and transferred over three computers, i didn’t own a physical, legal copy of it until early last year. Infuriatingly small. Infuriatingly obscure. Infuriatingly devoid of others’ esteem, adequate distribution, deserved and discoverable profile. Especially over here. I still am not sure of everything they’ve put out. I want, want, want it all!
