Cats & Dinosaurs

From Gothenburg/Sweden

Cats and Dinosaurs is a left wing feminist swing collective playing original swing dance music with political lyrics in Swedish and English, AKA “the worlds most radical swingband”. We mix the objectively best politics with the objectively best music. Result: dance party!!!! Our feet are planted in the radical backwaters of the jazz and blues, but we threw out all the standards in favor of our own leftie-feminist songbook.

Jazz was the punk of the twenties, and we want to honor the creativity and radicalism of the jazz pioneers by embracing their energy and attitude rather than copying them note for note.

We are also lindyhop dancers!  This is the secret behind our perfect dance groove that will get every floor going, all while our subversive message slips into peoples subconscious like gleeming red silverfish.
