The Rockabilly scene is thriving now, The Cats have toured twice in the last few years so isn't it time they gave us loyal fans a new CD? I'd be made up to be able to buy a new Stray Cats CD Shocked

PostSubject: I SECOND THAT !   Sat Feb 09, 2008 7:43 am

I AGREE . Tommy, ... Is it true that they dont plan on touring anymore because of issues with promoters ? RIDCULUS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Right now the whole "Rockabilly " scene is at an all time high , WHO IN THIER RIGHT MIND WOULDNT WANT TO PROMOTE THE STRAY CATS RIGHT NOW ! If there was EVER a time to give it a try Its now ! I just cant believe this , totally dissapointing =( Is there ANY chance AT ALL in a future tour , or even possibly a new cd ? God WHAT A WASTE not to see those cats together anymore. When you have the type of talent, and checmistry that those 3 men have when they are on a stage playing together, Its just painful to know that they wont ever give it a try again ! Can you just IMAGINE what kind of comeback THAT WOULD BE ? I hope they reconcider something like this. God ! CAN YOU JUST IMAGINE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A comeback , RIGHT NOW would be nothing short of PURE GENIUS !

For the little I understood reading Brian's interview, the problem is not to find promoters. It seems that Brian is not feeling about spend two years on the road making gigs & promos of a new Stray Cats album...

Well he should think about it ! I can only imagine how well it would pay off if they did. I think it would be worth his while if they would only give it a try . Ide bet anything in the world, that if they were to actually do it , Sparks would fly ! There could not be a better time to make a comeback then right now !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hmmm, I always wondered that since the 2004 reunion!
But I am afraid that they will do it the easiest way... recording a live show ;-)
They should play "Mystery Train kept a Rollin" live, wouldnt it be nice?? Above all, that's their latest studio song, and it should be performed live, at least as a novelty

Would the Hoodoo Voodoo Lounge site be what you are after?

howz a petition going to get anything going?

Probably more a factor of money, new material, promotion, schedules and existing projects.

Although I gottta think fan support is probably encouraging.

Exactlly , to maybe encourage them and maybe give them some kind of incentive ! To even get them to start concidering it ! Then possibly present it to them to show just how much we wanna see them / hear them together again ! You never know , just by puttin it in thier ear might start to get them thinking . I think Its important anyway that they know just how much they are still liked after all these years Maybe when they see how much a new Stray Cats cd would sell then it would at least be worth thier while as far as spending money and promotions go & stuff .... Im Just goin for a long shot here, but Ill try anything to wake the beast ! Twisted Evil

Yeah , the existing project thing Im SURE plays a huge role . Each of them DO have diffrent commitments now =(.... Oh well, like I said, you just never know ! Even just a concert ya know. if they cant go drastic, and reunite, or make a new album at least give us loyal loving fans who have supported them since thier begining a good old fashioned Strat Cats concert ... I wonder if Brian ever gets on here just to see what people are sayin about him... The world may never know ! Wouldnt that be great if he did though. *=)

I'd love to hear a new cats Album but I'd only want it if Setzer and the guys feel it should be so. The best stuff thats come out of the Setzer machine is from him just doing whatever he feels like doing at the time. If he feels he should close the tour with the classics than by god let it be, there are plenty of them and the live performances are so different everytime they're like new songs.

I totally agree with what everyone is saying and I said in one of my other posts that, now would probably be the best time in years to HIT the scene big time instead of finishing it all. The stray cats have a massive and very loyal fan base all over the world,and there is proof in the pudding when you try to get a hold of their old stuff or even new stuff for that matter,it is in such big demand that you just cant get hold of it.I recently tried to buy some bits I had'nt got from ebay and stood no chance unless I paid well over the odds for it (have'nt got the money at moment ,or would have carried on bidding)
They would really hit the big time again,with no problem(They could be even bigger this time around than before)
I cant see the point in finishing some thing that they worked so hard to make great,and I think it is something great and all the fans do too.
Please reconsider and maybe have a poll or vote or anything to keep the Stray cats going for a while longer.
The thing is, cats cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat have nine lives and The Stray Cats aint used all theirs YET!
Take Care

I think there's no time left for that......
If Stray Cats are actually going to be doing a 'farewell tour' why would they want to record a new cd?
This is goodbye to europe, not hello again. I understand your frustration Jaybird, but it's been 14 years since their last studio album! I don't think the Cats owe the fans anything. Yes, we'd all love them to record one more album, but think of the pressure of that? It would be compared with 'Stray 1', and 'built for speed' and other classic albums. What if they can't spend enough time together to come up with another 'Stray Cat Strut' or 'Runaway Boys'? New albums never go down as well as songs that we've got to love after 20 years. And if they did record one before the final tours, what would you rather hear, 'How long you wanna live? or a new song that you might not know all the words too? On other posts people have said all the songs that they would like Stray Cats to play. Even if they played all these rare songs different every night not all of them could be played as well as the 'hit' records. So i would say that getting the band together, figuring out what songs to do, and at what venues, is probably going to be enough for now. But a farewell song specially composed for the tour would be awesome! So maybe there is time for a farewell cd single?

Steve,we've had lots of cd's,if you count all the live one's from Euro tour of 2004!
But yeah a new studio album,would be cool.

Stray Cats and friends,come rock with us.

Nice Idea Radiationsteve (a farewell song) that would be brill,maybe even a sort of medley of their old songs with a bit of new input,similar to Gene and Eddie.

What utter drivel, there's a massive Rockabilly following now, a lot of younger people getting into it just as there was in the early 80's, hence why these tours are happening. Anything that Setzer puts his name too Sells.

Just for the record I created this thread before I knew about the tour, as for the band being over, thats leaves me LMAO lol!
