1000s of Cats is a Tokyo-based indie/punk music duo composed of Sonoko Nebashi (G.) and Dave Gatchell (Dr.). The band name is inspired by the children’s picture book called Millions of Cats by Wanda Gág. The two have been making music together since 2006. and have released several albums and EPs, including:

They sound like someone mixed a kids song and a punk rock anthem together and it turned into indie rock. Somehow, it all works. Their lyrics are quirky and their melodies are catchy. Their music is raw and unpolished, and their performances are devoid of artifice and pretense.

"It’s one of the most pleasurable listening experiences of the year for this reviewer. Minneapolis Limited Records has done right by America making this LP available in the U.S. Only 150 were pressed, so buy now or cry later..."
Josh Benke (Razorcake)
"そのサウンドはポストパンクからさらに原点回帰しパブロック、ガレージパンクへ逆流し、チープな演奏と二人のキャラクターが独特のポップさを加えた新世代のオールタナティブ。"
バローギャングレコード
"The songs have the stripped-down, straightforward guitar playing and earnest vocal delivery of P.S. ELIOT or early BRATMOBILE and witty, observant lyrics that verge on the slightly dark side of unrequited love like the ones that bands such as CUB or BUCK would sing..."
Tim Janchar (Maximum Rock n Roll)
"Their sound goes from post-punk to the beginnings of pub rock, with an undercurrent of garage punk, and a low-budget performance style. This two piece is peculiar pop that adds to a new generation of alternative."
Barrow Gang Records
