Track of the Day #134: Catholic Action – L.U.V.

Posted by Neil Wilson

Catholic Action - L.U.V.
You’ll be forgiven for knowing this track already if you are a regular round these parts.  L.U.V. was part of a rather excellent split tape released last year on Fuzzkill Records along with the now sadly departed Poor Things, and we played the hell out of it on the Scottish Fiction radio show.

The great news is that Catholic Action are now releasing the track as their ‘official’ first single on vinyl via Luv Luv Luv Records.  That means two things.  Firstly a revamped and spruced up version of the track, and secondly we get to gush about it’s brilliance all over again!  Behold the glam rock swagger of L.U.V., the rapturous guitar lines reminiscent of early ’70’s Bowie and T-Rex, and the confidence and self assured vocals of front-man Chris McCrory.  With support slots with Swim Deep, FFS, and The Libertines already under their belts, the band are gunning for your attention.  Ignore Catholic Action at your peril.
