CAT'N'GUYEN ! How do you pronounce that ? Don't know, but they are real !
They are two! A Catboy playing bassguitar very loud and very powerful
and LRTT* speaks in tongues born out of fever and a non-irrelevant
provocation due to HipHop. Beats are homemade resampled stolen and rewinded.
The lyrics tells storys inspired by the bitterness of daily grind and
the Bassguitar-Likz come straight out of the bloody hands of a male cat in tights.
All in all it's pretty funny.

After the foundation in 2009 CAT'N'GUYEN got some stories to tell. CAT’N’GUYEN that are two! LRTT* and CATBOY. They live in smelly Berlin and started out joking around with beats and bass and phät HipHopRhymes. Close to the forecast of the apocalypse in 2012 they finally released their first album SHINYHIPHOPDEATHFUCK with a lot of help of their friends. So it became a 100% DIY-record. Before LRTT* and CATBOY met, they both were active in different bands. LRTT*, the shout-out-loud of CAT’N’GUYEN, was a band member of OBST UND GEMÜSE (Punk), ENTRAILS MASSACRE (Grindcore), ERDE UND PLASTIK (Folk) and also involved in some other projects like VALERTA BIBATONIS ORK . A collaboration with JQR from EFFTER . And of course N!G!U!Y!E!N! in collaboration with ORAVIN . Catboy also joined and launched different music-projects, until the lonesome wolf became THE first bass-guitar-playing Catboy in tights. He used to play solo under bridges and in bathtubs on children's birthday partys. The idea to mash up came up on the occasion of the BELTANE-Festival , which is the YNFND-Get-Together once a year in the middle of nowhere in the woods. CAT'N'GUYEN was born! Just one month after CAT’N’GUYEN were invited to the Fusion-Festival and to the LFSM-Festival (Les Femmes s'en Mêlent) at Festsaal Kreuzberg. Dorfdisco , OPAK-Magazin or La Gazettede (french) wrote about them. Surprisingly ALIEN KIOSK asked them to create a Take Away Tape, which is a one hour radio show! So they did it, only using Music from friends. After that they recorded a few song on their own and contributed PULL OF YOUR SHIRT to the YNFND-COMPIPI and the CUTE CHAOS TAPE COMPILATION (TrimTabTapes) . The song was played at Expatriarch-Radio Show and a local Berlin radio station, who invited them for an Interview in preperation for the DOWN BY THE RIVER Festival, where they supported JEFFLEY LEWIS amongst others. MEGAPENG came across and gave them the possibility to appear on the "MORE MUSIC-LESS MACHO!" and made CAT’N’GUYEN BAND OF THE MONTH in July 2012 . They also played for the Refugee Tent Action or the ODD POP Festival in the LBB in Maastricht, which was documented by K.i.M. TV (starting 11:30'). In 2013 they will have some space to trial-and-error some new shit. Latest projects are for example a Live-Soundtrack for a Performance or joining other formations like EPIPHANY NOW or BALG. CAT'N'GUYEN made some UNPLUGGED Recordings, that you maybe will get to here some time. They made a virtue out of necessity. Unplugged concerts where arranged by locations in Berlin, that are forced to react to the gentrification processes and it’s problems by either starting concerts very early or just doing Quiet-Metal. When they unpack the acoustic guitars they are supported by the gorgeous dogwoman MADEMOISELLE BARDOT. Besides this experiment you can expect the RMX-Album of SHINYHIPHOPDEATHFUCK to come. Lately they where asked 13 Questions by La Moustache, which is the latest news. CAT'N'GUYEN broke up in September 2013 but somehow it is a pity, because some people liked it, for example Terminal Escape.
