The Puss Puss Band Album with Rab on keys 2018

Thursday, January 25th, 2018

The Puss Puss Band are a two piece mainly studio based outfit from South Wales comprised of multi instrumentalists Asa Galeozzie and Lee Pugh.

Both have worked with numerous artists and bands in the UK and the Welsh music industry over the last ten years as writers & session musicians
he Puss Puss band are so named because their first regular audience consisted of a cat.

Having been big fans of the Who they got in touch with John (rabbit) Bundrick and asked him to listen to some of their songs. He was so impressed that he worked with them on their album ‘Echoes across the cruel sea’ and collaborates with them on upcoming tracks. Asa and Lee are obviously over the moon about their ‘third’ member:

Now, what Lee and Asa don’t realise is John Bundrick has been a fan of mine for eons:-) I asked him for a little comment about the Puss Puss band and this is what he said:
“My old mate Gongleshanks has been in touch to ask about the Puss Puss band. I was so thrilled to hear from Gongle I had to rack my brains to remember who the PP band are! Then I remembered I worked with them on ‘Echoes across the cruel sea’ which is a great album but……well as you probably know Gongle is a Megastar and we are all incredibly blessed to know him! WOW it was awesome of you to get in touch Gongle:-)” John Bundrick
Here’s a track from the puss puss band featuring MY mate JB: Not just you) You Tube

So …. Lee …..Do you know anybody famous??😭 😭 😭 apart from Megastar Gongle of course!
I might …but no one in your league Gongle?
Could you change the lyrics in ‘Not just you’ to

‘Everybody wants to be someone else it seems – apart from Gongleshanks who is perfectly happy being the Megastar that he is! ??
Anything is possible? If you’ve got the beans, we’ve got the means?…..

If I’ve got the beans?? Blimey Lee, no wonder I get you mixed up with James Bacon!
Now for another musical interlude:
Bucko’s lullaby

Is Asa real or is he a figment of your imagination? It just seems that you do all the interviews and talking on Twitter. Is he your imaginary friend? Maybe ‘Rab’ is also your imaginary friend and you forged that note!

That would make things easier wouldn’t it?…can we ponder that thought? No.. Asa just has more sense than me and keeps an eye on other things behind the scenes…while I dance like a monkey out front of shop…essentially the same arrangement live too…and yes, as unlikely as it sounds…Rabbit is very real. I’m still not quite sure how we managed to pull that off but he is most certainly our ‘Gem’. We’re incredibly fortunate to have him and to be able to work with a musician of his calibre.
Are you planning to write any happy songs any time soon?
You never know?! We only really write from personal experience and try to deliver that as honestly as we can. Echoes Across The Cruel Sea was a very intimate, personal collection of songs and we went to a lot of effort to present them in as intimate and direct a way as possible. Personally I’ve always found writing happy songs to be quite a shallow well and not as challenging or creatively fulfilling. For me, more complex, darker emotions push and stretch me more as a writer and also as a musician and performer…..but you never know?

We’re currently working on the second album and while we don’t want to give away too much…I will say that it will be a slight departure from Echoes Across The Cruel Sea but we’re pretty sure you’ll still know it’s us when you hear it. Perfect World (you tube)

If you have time listen to this interview with Lee, it’s very interesting:
Interview with the Runner (You tube)
At 1. 16 in the interview when the Runner asks Lee how he pronounces his surname I creased up because I honestly thought he was going to say ‘Pugh, Pugh, Barney, McGrew, Cuthbert, Dibble, Grubb’


Well, It’s About Time…new album from Andy Chapman

The Puss Puss Band: Heartfelt Music Leaves a Lasting Impression

 Paul J Wolfle

3 hours ago

The debut album from The Puss Puss Band, Echoes Across The Cruel Sea, features a collection of closely connected songs that lay bare a sincere first-person candor set to music.After listening, you cannot help but feel the songwriters must have somehow lived the lyrics. A singular blend of electric and acoustic indie rock and style, adept musicianship clearly characterizes each of the 12 new tracks. But there is so much more to say and hear.

The Album’s Personnel

Right away, you realize The Puss Puss Band, South Wales-based multi-instrumentalists and singers Asa Galeozzie and Lee Pugh, are no mere mortals. Just judge them by the musical company they keep: namely the well-known keyboardist John “Rabbit” Bundrick, who also played on Echoes Across The Sea. Bundrick’s credits include being a member of Free, session work with The Who, a fundamental musician on the original cast soundtrack of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and far too many other legendary acknowledgements to list here. Meanwhile, Galeozzie and Pugh, along with Bundrick, have created their own winning formula.

About The Songs

Released in April, the album opens with the 3:39 “Bucko’s Lullaby,” a consistently metered cut, seasoned with restrained but distinctly powerful vocals, including unique inflections and the soulful organ work that lightly hovers throughout song. Before long, like a fine book, the track builds to a moving orchestral crescendo. That is probably not a coincidence, considering Galeozzie and Pugh like to call their songs, “pocket epics.” Another fast growing favorite, “Alone,” a strummed acoustic track that cycles through guitar chords as gentle harmonies fill the way, has just the right beat, amount of instrumentation and commercial crowd appeal for the radio charts. The slightly moody and introspective lyrics pretty much speak for themselves: “Because everybody’s got a time, where they break and when their sky falls, where you truly get to know, what it means to be alone…”

A Nuanced Assortment 

From the musicians and writing to the performance and production, Echoes Across The Cruel Sea is impressive in every sense, including “Beeswax,” a progressive, trippy, dream pop music design with plenty of atmosphere to spare. Listen closely to “Not Just You” and you might be able to pick up on elements of an early Greg Lake charisma during his Emerson, Lake and Palmer days. No doubt, Lee Pugh (vocals, lead guitars, rhythm guitars, bass guitar, backing vocals, orchestral arrangements, programming) and Asa Galeozzie (rhythm guitars, bass guitar, melodica, drums, backing vocals, orchestral arrangements and programming) blend a variety of awareness’s into their sound.

All tracks on Echoes Across The Cruel Sea were written, arranged, engineered, produced, mixed and mastered by Asa Galeozzie and Lee Pugh. John “Rabbit” Bundrick plays piano, Hammond organ, keyboards, synths, SFX, orchestral arrangements and programming. The album is available at Bandcamp.  To answer your question, yes, the band’s name is based on a cat.

Snuffy has always been there for me during my hard times.
He’s always only a phone call away.
I am a recovering alcoholic, and in the old days I
used to get on my phone and call the ‘World’ at 3am….
I was in my Studio and I called Snuffy one time after 10 pints of the strongest Lager
and 3 bottles of Red Wine, then I was banned from every single Pub in
Grantham England, Snuff picked up and, thank God, told me to never, ever
call him when I was drunk. I was taken aback at 1st, then later on realised ‘That’ was exactly the right help that I needed…
I have been totally ‘Sober’ now for over 25 years, and I thank Snuffy for being there.

The Puss Puss Band – Music with a Pulse!

KiKi Skinner  | May 12, 2017

Can you hear my echo?   Yes?  Okay, listen up!  

Ladies and gentlemen (Ladies and Gentlemen).  Get ready (Get ready).  To be (to be). Stoked!!! (STOKED). 

In short, these guys know what they are doing.  So clever.  This CD plays like a new age Italian sonnet set to the awesome playing skills of outstanding musicians along with great lyrics and vocals.  

The Puss Puss Band is a Folk, Pop, Jazz two piece duo from the UK that encompasses members Asa Galeozzie & Lee Pugh. 

These guys have played with many UK and Welsh artists and bands for years and just a decade ago they decided to try their hands at writing and being session musicians, and let me just say that I am so glad they gave us a peak into their writing and vocal world because it was so worth it.  And if two musical geniuses were not enough on this cut, they’ve collaborated with piano legend John Rabbit Bundrick to seal this album with splendid instrumentation and classic music. 

This is a review of The Puss Puss Band’s new album entitled “Echoes across the Cruel Sea.”  Twelve songs of pure chilled indie Pop: 

  1. Bucko’s Lullaby
  2. Alone
  3. Fall Back Down
  4. Cliff Song
  5. Inwake
  6. Bees Wax
  7. Say It First
  8. Thinking of You
  9. Feline Fine
  10. End of June
  11. Perfect World
  12. Not Just You 

Three musical masterminds kicked up a great CD where each song delivers something for its listeners with a mix of Pop, Folk, Jazz, and I think ROCK.  These seven songs are my highlights.  

We are introduced into The Puss Puss Band’s world with the opening track “Bucko’s Lullaby.”  This song starts off as a little lullaby but grows bigger and bigger.  This has become one of my favorites as Lee Pugh’s voice rings Bon Jovian on this, and the classic percussions with clear brass just eludes to Sunday mornings when you just want to stay indoors and create.  

The second track entitled “Alone” has the piano as another artist and it keeps the feet moving.  This is a put on your boyfriend’s shirt and just dance type of song.   In addition, it encompasses the magic that U2 prides themselves in building – simplicity with a kick. 

There’s a nostalgic feel to “Cliff Song.”  If you love psychedelic instrumentation, then you will love this song. 

The most illustrative song on the album is entitled “Thinking of You.”  There’s a hidden out-of-breath effect on this cut that gives the emotion of a person wanting to ask but is afraid to get the answer – anxiety and anticipation are all wrapped up in this song.  The lyrics read “Do you ever think about me? / The way I think about you? / Say you’re thinking of me / Can’t stop thinking of you” – Can you feel it? Breathless, anxious, waiting, thinking!  

Feline Fine” is the ninth track and I fell in love with the big band appeal on this cut – so fun to hear this song.  John Rabbit Bundrick plays the piano in this cut so smooth and so elegant that it makes the listener just melt away.  Accurate rhyme scheme and great play on words!! 

With a world so full of chaos today, “Perfect World” is the song to listen to and it makes it alright.  An endearing in-your-face message wrapped around a great vocal and inspiring stringed instruments to set the tone of PEACE. 

Not Just You” is the twelfth and final track. First, you hear a mellow introduction and then Lee’s vocal comes in strong and really stands out front as an engaging first tenor / baritone.  This track closes the album with its frankness and tells the story about wanting to be someone, or something, else.  True, this is not just a one person issue – everybody gets in this slump.  

And that brings me to the title of the album – “Echoes Across the Cruel Sea” which metaphorically ties in the entire scheme of the CD where each song poses a problem and gives a solution like a musical sonnet telling the stories of life’s echoes:  echoes of truth and dare, echoes of love and passion, echoes of fear and anxiety, echoes of the internal struggles of just being human, as well as echoes of time and social issues.  

And like many problems posed to us, we do what “The Puss Puss Band” states in their track Bucko’s Lullaby, “What happens when love goes lame? / You screw it all up and start over again / You box it all up and start over again.”  

Not since Simon and Garfunkel, Tears for Fears, or Burt Bacharach have we, the listening audience, been given great story telling as this.  

If anything musically ever reverbed an echo to your ears to help you remember it, forget about it, because, these guy’s songs send an echo that resonates to your ears, flutters your heart, and then it goes BOOM with blazing guitars, sexy voices, catchy hooks, driving instrumentation, and heart string-pulling melodies.  

Which song of The Puss Puss Band is your favorite?  Comment and let me know!

An update on the Spring Trip into the Oaxacan Mountains 
A few weeks ago we held a medical and dental clinic outreach in a village To Every Tribe has committed to bring the Gospel.  The Center for Pioneer Church Planting (CPCP) sent down fourteen students and one staff member to assist our team for the clinic.  Around six of the students had dental training in the “hand tool techniques” Lori learned a few years ago.  

We do these types of clinics to communicate our love for them and let them know that we do care for them and respect them as a “people group”. The village we went to is part of the indigenous Zapotec people that reined the mountains of Oaxaca during the birth, death, and resurrection of Christ.  These people are very much a part of the rich culture of Oaxaca.  For them, the mountains of Oaxaca are not just their home, they are a large part of who they are.  These mountains have secluded them for many years.  The only way to contact them was by helicopter or an insane hike over multiple mountains. Up until around thirty years ago, there weren’t any roads reaching them.  Then logging companies started to request their trees in exchange for roads and a few other benefits.  As we drive on these rugged, twisty dirt roads we realize that God purposed these roads to be built for the spread of His Good News.  He is the God that all people must stand judgment after our final hours here on earth. But He cares for us, because He is Love.  The greatest way we can demonstrate our love for these people is to share with them the love of God.   To tell them how He sent His Son to die on our behalf so that God no longer will judge those who trust in Him as condemned, but justified.  Justified, because He is a God of grace.  He gives us mercy so that we can have a new life and perfect fellowship with Him.  That we might praise Him for who He is in this life and the life to come.  This is the ultimate reason for our outreach to these people.  We want to stretch out our hands to the Zapotecs to bring them physical healing, but our ultimate concern is for their spiritual healing.  The physical is only temporal, but the soul is eternal.
We want to tell you more stories about the trip, but don’t want this letter to be ridiculously long. PLEASE, check out our blog to read stories about the people’s response to hearing, for the first time, an audio recording of the Bible in their language, about the couple who undestood the Gospel with joy, the crippled man confined to his bed, and other stories from the trip.
If you’re not able to access the blog, please send us a note at and we’ll send you an email with the blog content.
Kids at Camp
Thank you for praying for all of us while we were scattered about.  All three kids were at camp in Puebla for four days.  Jim left on Friday and the kids loaded up on their bus on Saturday morning.  It was not the easiest of partings, but we all survived.  Actually, the kids thoroughly LOVED camp and being with their friends non-stop for four days.  They came back with stories about crazy songs at meal times, all sorts of new games, and skit night.  I’m still hearing more stories about camp.  Micah ended up in a cabin with three boys and three counselors.  That worked out well for him since he was a bit sad about leaving me behind.  Rebekah bunked with a counselor she had met before and made friends with a cabin full of girls she’d not met before.  Elijah was with his friends and had a blast.  They and our other To Every Tribe friends on the trip all seemed to take care of each other when their activities overlapped.  Each of the kids wished that camp had lasted longer than just four days.  I take that as a good sign.
Annalise and I did well together at our home in Oaxaca.  We played games, went for walks outside, watched Elmo and a Barbie movies, ate and took naps.  She learned early on not to climb the stairs without me after she took a four step tumble.  Thankfully she wasn’t badly hurt, but did learn not to do that adventure alone.  I really enjoyed having her with me.  She woke up so cheerfully and not so early in the mornings.  It was fun, but busy, having a little one around.  She turned two just last week.  I’m thankful the Lord had a task to keep me busy while Jim and the kids were away.  I think I would have been quite sad at home all alone without Annalise.
The Mission Field of the Heart
“For the missionary, the biggest mission field is his own heart.”  
AJ Gibson, To Every Tribe Mexico Field Director

There’s something about living in another culture, away from the comforts and distractions of the US, that really brings to surface areas of sin in your life.  I’ve heard other missionaries speak about it, but now I understand.  When you deal with constant sickness or frustrations and inconveniences, when things in culture don’t make sense to your American mind, when everything takes work, sinful attitudes seem to come to the surface.  The Lord has been graciously “cleaning house” these past few months.  I’ve just started reading a book, How People Change and just picked up another book by Milton Vincent, A Gospel Primer for Christians.  The Lord is showing me some errors in my thinking and is bringing me more in line with Scripture.  I’m sure I’ll have more to share with you along the way. Thank you for praying for us along this journey.

John “Rabbit” Bundrick (The Who, Free, Bob Marley, solo) – an interview by Thodoris Dimitroulas from Greece

Friday, October 14th, 2011

John “Rabbit” Bundrick (The Who, Free, Bob Marley, solo)

EXCLUSIVE:Hit Channel had the great honour to talk with a living legend:John “Rabbit” Bundrick. “Rabbit” is The Who’s keyboardist for more than 30 years. Previously he was a member of Free (“Heartbreaker” album).He has also played with Bob Marley,Roger Waters (“Amused to Death” album),Johnny Nash and Eric Burdon (The Animals,War singer) among others. Read below the great answers he gave us:
Which are the current projects you’re involved in?Are you doing any recordings this period?
I’ve just finished doing some Snowy White (ed:Roger Waters,ex-Thin Lizzy guitarist) gigs in Holland and Germany, and will do more with Snowy as time goes on. We get on really great, and have a mutual respect for each others playing.
How you came in contact with Night Parade guys?Did you live in Liverpool like them?
I met them all when they hired me to play keys on their last album. It was a great meeting, and we instantly became friends. I just wish someone with some ‘clout’ would sign them up and give thema chance at the big time. Great guys and great musicians. Rob writes fantastic songs and has a very unique voice. Things are slow for them right now, but they are still plodding on, so fans, you can check them out on my website,
How possible a new The Who tour?I know Pete Townshend is recording right now..
Well, it’s all down to Pete an when and if he wants to work again. I know there’s something in the pipeline, but have no details of anything definite. We’ll see…He’s the boss, the rest of us just wait around for him to be active.
Do you think the period you were playing with Johnny Nash was very important for your later career?
It kickstarted my whole professional career as a giggin’ musician. Without working with my dear friend, Johnny Nash, it led me on to other work including Bob Marley, Free, I became the ‘staple’ keyboard player for Island Records in the early ’70s, and branched out all over London to other artists and producers, Glyn Johns (ed:Led Zeppelin engineer,famous rock producer), Pete Townshend and Ronnie Lane (ed:Faces,Small Faces bassist,deceased) and Glyn is the guy that introduced me to me, Joan Armatrading, Andy Fairweather-Low, and countless others..Micky Most (Donovan’s “Cosmic Wheels” album and solid session work).  Johnny Nash is responsible for all of this, thanks John.
Do you think your solo albums should have received more recognition from fans and press?Many of these are excellent works!
Of course I do, but the problem was that I had no ‘band’ of my own to tour and gig those albums, so really it’s partly my fault for not getting a band of my own, and working the songs Live. I was doing so many sessions for others, and the Studio is where I am the most comfortable, as opposed to the stage, that I never even thought of having my own band. Thank you for the nice comment on their worth.
Do you miss old friends like Paul Kossoff (Free guitarist),Bob Marley,Jim Capaldi (Traffic drummer), and John Entwhistle (The Who bassist)?
 Goes without saying, I miss them all everyday, and have pictures of them in my studio so I can get their vibe going here, which inspires a lot of my work. I could have easily been a casualty as well, and thank God for allowing me to continue on with my Life & Career. Long may it last.
When you first met Bob Marley in Sweden,did you expected that you would become close friends?Were you familiar with reggae before meeting him? 
When I met Bob in Stockholm in 1971, he was just a songwriter for Johnny Nash, as  per the Marley Tracks Johnny used on the “I Can See Clearly Now” album. I’d never heard of Reggae before that, so Bob personally taught me how to do the organ reggae style while we were recording songs for Johnny in Europa Film studios in Stockholm. Bob, and myself were taken to Sweden by Nash to help compose songs for the Film Johnny was starring in at the time. Fabulous days, fabulous days, the best so far……..
Do you have happy memories from Roger Waters’ “Amused to Death” recordings?Was Roger a easy-going person to work with?
Yes, very good memories. He is such a talent to reckon with. His music is the ‘original’ Pink Floyd sound. I did a bit of work on “Amused to Death”, a bit of Hammond here & there, that’s all, but it was a mind-blowing experience to hear ‘that sound’ coming into my headphones as I fumbled along trying not to let the nostalgia   and jaw dropping music that I was playing too. Wow !…what an artist that guy is, what a talented, intelligent man Roger is (ed:unfortunately,many Greeks learned the name “Roger Waters” last summer). 
Do you like today Eric Burton’s “Survivor” album?It has some great musicians playing there (Alexis Korner,Zoot Mooney,P.P Arnold).. 
Yes I do, and you know what?, I’m playing on that album too (ed:that’s why I’m asking for that). Eric covered 2 of my “Broken Arrow” songs on his album a couple of years ago, “Muddy Water” and “Devil Run”…..My Crawler drummer, Tony Braunagel produces Eric’s albums today, and Crawler’s bass player, Terry Wilson, is in Eric’s current touring band. It’s all in the family. Musicians as old as us eventually get to know these old ‘rock stars’,  ha  ha.
You’ve played with many great musicians. Is there anyone you’d like to work with and hasn’t happened yet?
Uh, Eric Clapton, Roger Waters, Paul McCartney, too many to list.  I’ve met them all several times, but they already have their own keyboardist, like I am the Who’s keyboarist, the others have their own favorite guy they like to work with. Once you’ve worked with a certain band for as long as I have, means I know the in’s and out’s of how they work, live & play, so they can rely on their main man on keys to slot right in whenever the time comes.
Have you ever been in Greece?Send a message to Greek fans.
Nope, but would love to visit. I know Greece is having trouble right now, but hope that the trouble doesn’t ruin the people’s of Greece vitality and energetic outlook on Life. Hang in there you guys, hang in there.
A huge “THANK YOU” to Mr John “Rabbit” Bundrick.

I’ve just been doing a bit of work with Jimmy over the Internet.
He sends me stuff down the ‘wire’, and I have a jolly time over-dubbing
brand new keyboards and then send it back to him. He’s a great song writer and
vocals are supreme. We work great together. And the thrill of it all?…
he comes from two of my favourite bands………..SAVOY BROWN…..and CACTUS, with the old
Vanilla Fudge band members. I’m in my Element here Ya’ll…………….
