No Course To Follow

Debut Album

Our first real release, 8 tracks clocking in at about 28 minutes. Released digitally on Bandcamp, and also in a limited edition of 50 blue cassettes. You can also stream it on Spotify if you really have to.

We went down to Portland to record with Hutch Harris producing and Victor Nash engineering, at Destination:Universe. We love that studio, with resident cat Oogie (RIP 2020), walls full of sci-fi novels, and a herd of nutria.

Visit our bandcamp for some early demos and live recordings.

Bobcat is a Band

We're just a bunch of dummies in Seattle making punk rock music in a basement.

Katie was in a 2-piece band with Ellen Callaghan called the Worst Idea. Tyler and Dylan were in a 5-piece band called A Province of Thay for several years. Tyler left that band. Katie asked Tyler's wife, Danielle, if she wanted to learn a few covers on guitar so they could play at an open mic night. She declined, but mentioned that Tyler was looking for people to play with again. He showed up with several mostly written songs, and they roped Dylan into playing bass and singing. This was no longer a casual open mic situation.

They needed to call themselves something, even just informally. Tyler was reading a collection of short stories by Rebecca Lee titled 'Bobcat and Other Stories', and they started using that amongst themselves, with the intention of coming up with a better name later.

It stuck.

Latest Update:

Out of Hibernation

When we made this site, we weren't really planning on it only updating every six months. But we definitely went through a stretch of not having much to talk about for the first part of this year.

But we've hit the point where roughly 5 of 8 new songs are ready, 1 more is ready to play ...
