3 stars Interesting short-lived UK band,formed in late-60's in West London.Their first eponymous LP,released by Vertigo Label in 1971,was produced by ''Black Sabbath's'' manager Patrick Meehan.With a clever artwork,showing a caterpillar cutting off a ''psychedelic'' apple,''Catapilla'' was a very experimental album,featiring female vocalist Anna Meek and three wind-instrumentalists.Really hard to describe their sound,CATAPILLA's style is based on psych-inspired guitars,tons of sax solos and strong aggresive vocals by Anna Meek.There is a lot of space for jazzy improvisations and if you could imagine a cross between COLLOSEUM or NUCLEUS with JEFFERSON AIRPLANE,you're quite close to how this band sounds like.''Catapilla'' is one of the most daring examples of a band,who succesfully blended brass-rock with psych/progressive rock with nice results.A great debut indeed!
