My Sweaty Cats "Split Head Cat" shirt
Coy verging on evasive, the members of My Sweaty Cats have always avoided divulging how the band's name came to be... until now. Turns out all that was needed was a pot of organic dandelion tea and a heaping bowl of kale chips.
"We were backstage at our first ever gig," recalls co-founder Marianne Lavallee, "but we still didn't have a name." She pauses to sip the dandelion tea and partake in some kale chips. "It was the middle of an Oregonian summer heatwave and the TV news was on in our dressing room. A woman with no AC was being interviewed and she was going on and on about 'my sweaty cats'. We all looked at each other, shrugged and went out onstage. It just kind of stuck.
What does this have to do with this particular shirt? "Nothing really," says Marianne. "We just wanted to see what the Greek monster Cerberus looked like with cat heads instead of dog heads."
