Hear Kitty kitty / Blog



A new HKK bio by Cordell/ Jonny Kat:) 10/13

Hello !

My name is Jonny Kat. I play guitar with Hear KittyKitty. "What's Hear Kitty Kitty?" You ask? "Who is Jonny Kat?"

Well here goes....

Hear Kitty Kitty is my best friend Kitty's (Nikita La Tijera) project shes started a couple years ago. "The plight of the alley cat!" She laughed as she swaggered into the neon clouds of Hollywood Blvd. Kitty and I have played lots together. From backyard parties, carnivals, charity events.... to after hour clubs, theaters, and radio shows.... to U.S. National tours.... to Donnington (England), at this years Download Festival.... she has been my musical chocolate, to my peanut butter cup. Hear Kitty Kitty IS Kitty's vision.... I am the one to bring it into focus....

Who is Jonny Kat? I like to think of myself as a Super Hero! Like Batman! Spider Man! Iron man! YA SUPERMAN! (I leave Wonder Woman for Kitty).... The truth is Jonny Kat is lil ol me... Cordell Crockett! But I think I'm lots cooler than Bruce Wayne, Peter Parker, and Clark Kent combined. Why? Cuz I get to party like a rockstar, touring the world as bassist of Ugly Kid Joe, having sold more than 5 million hard copies of 4 different albums, with number 1 video and radio hits like "Everything about You " and "Cat's N the Cradle ", and currently touring European festivals in support of UKJ's current EP "Stairway to Hell". Ya Bruce Wayne might be loaded, but what would you rather be doin? Hangin out with Alfred or sharing stages with Metallica, Moterhead, Black Sabbath, Soundgarden, Prodigy, Lamb of god, Puddle of Mud, Guns N Roses, and on and on and on.....and thats my day job! When I get my super hero tights on, and ya, tey're tight, I'm ....JONNY KAT! Handlin the shit on guitar, and stage, with 3 of the sultriest sexy super heroines in God's lair...HEAR KITTY KITTY! Yep...that's us...saving the universe, one song, one fan, one city, one world at a time.... best of all, there are no bad guys, or bad girls.... just bad boys n naughty girls.... Cordell Crockett is Jonny Kat!

quick note on Danzig cover:)

As u may, or may not know, I had a side project last year as lead vocalist of a Danzig cover band. In that period of time.. A few of the songs such as "Mother" and "long way back from hell" just super did it for me and I really enjoyed singing them. But "I'm the One" totally became my favorite. I love the blues and combining sweet with sex and sultry mixed in with a huge helping of .balls. chutzpah. panache. whatever u wanna call it.. Danzig's got it in his swagger and I very much enjoyed 'studying his art" .. if u will:) I hope u enjoy my version.. and u will hear this song mixed in on different nights with covers by other artists I respect such as the Distillers, the Runaways, Betty Blowtorch.. This video was recorded by my friend Jeff Isgod at the Viper room Femme Fest tour 2013 kick off show last week and sent to me in 4 parts. So, I tried to edit it smoothly together in imovie..but a couple lines r missing and if u know your danzig by heart and say... HEY!.. well. that's y... thanks to: the Viper room...as well as all our friends, families, fans, endorsements. and everyone working hard to make Femme fest AWESOME!. more 4 sure! meow 4 now!

remembering 9/11. kitty

Today we remember the September 11 attacks of 2001 + honor the thousands of innocent men, women and children who were taken from this life, too soon. And it kind of makes u think. No matter what is going on in our lives.. what struggles or challenges we are facing- large or small u have to just be grateful to wake up today carpe diem!

and for all the little things we sometimes take for granted or sometimes go unnoticed...

Today. stop and appreciate. and remember the so many. who 11 years ago had that simple gift taken away.

Mid Summer Update: kitty 7/30

Hi everyone! Well! We had a great time on our 1 month US Spring Fling tour and we want to thank everyone again who made that special. As u may know, when we got back Cordell went out on a 1 month reunion tour to Europe with the band he was in before hear kitty kitty, Ugly Kid Joe. Since he got back early July, we have been working on a new batch of songs for our next EP and we are very excited about some of these tracks. He will be going to Brazil w UKJ from 8/9-8/12 and we should begin recording the new EP pretty soon after that but we already have a few tracks that are close now. And we both Can't wait to share! I have been planning 2 shoots with my friend and awesome photographer, Glen Willis and he came to NO HO to visit Cordell & I at the studio today and we took some cool pix I'll be posting soon. Hope everyone is having a good summer :) xoxo kitty

reality tv check. jonny kat, 10/28

Isn’t “reality tv” just “non-fiction tv”? If that’s true (which in my opinion it is), then NFL Football games, MLB Baseball games, NBA Basketball games, and NHL Hockey games would all be classified as “reality tv” too. I recently found myself sidetracked, watching a couple different “reality tv” shows, at my friend’s house. The shows I saw that day were more “fiction” than “reality”….fa shore….”Jersey Shore”….that is! And who’s version of “reality” is the Kardashian’s….the world may never know! I probably have more in common with the “Pawn Stars” since I’ve visited many pawn shops along my path to super stardom. I like the “reality tv” shows that inspire us, like the “Biggest Loser”, and “Extreme Home Makeover”. At least those two shows seam to make us want to be better people (in general). News, documentaries, biographies, and NOVA shows are more the “reality tv” shows I find intriguing. The tattoo show I caught for a minute was interesting as well. In a nut shell, my point is this…. while “Wipe Out” is really funny at times, it’s not “reality tv” funny…. I’m just sayin…. ~ Jonny Kat “Rockin the Box”

Gender Specific Bands vs. Species Specific Bands jonny kat, 10/26

I’m the only guy in an “all girl band”….right? WRONG!!!! In my opinion, bands that are gender specific, just for the sake of being that, are lame. We don’t hear about “all guy bands”. Maybe “boy” bands, but they suck, so I’ve made my point. Put it this way, if a group is selling itself as an “all girl” or “boy band”, chances are , they are more concerned with their “image”, rather than their music. While image is important in the music scene, it won’t stop thousands of mud slinging moshers in the pit from spitting on you if you suck (musically). So, my point is this: If you are a GREAT band, that happens to be all girls, boys, dogs, cats, gorrillas, parrots, chickens, cows, or etc., etc., etc., let you fans figure out who you are. If your music is valid, and they like it, they are more than likely smart enough to know on their own. After all, they were smart enough to love your songs…. I’m just sayin…. ~ Jonny Kat “Rockin the Box”

making lucid dreams realities, jk, 10/20

I have a challenge for you. The next time you are lucky enough, to sleep long enough, to have a dream, then try this: open up your hands and stare at your palms. This will allow you to realize you are dreaming, and thus, allow you to freely enjoy your dream state. Go ahead....fly high in the sky! Make friends with people you'll actually never meet! Shape shift yourself into any animal in the wild kingdom! Close your eyes, click your heels, spin around, and reopen your eyes to a whole new universe! Visit long lost loves! Make right all those wrongs! Bury all the skeletons left in the closet! Truthfully, it's the most fun you'll ever have, all from the comfort and safety of your own bed! (or where ever you happen to choose to sleep) At first, it's very difficult to see any part of yourself in a dream. Don't be scared if you look different than normal. It's just another way of letting you know you are in a dream, and not reality. I hope you have as much fun as I do! Dreams are what help us define our goals. Goals without deadlines are dreams. So get your rest!!!!

ONE YEAR OLDS RULE THE WORLD!!!! jonny kat, 9/23

So my buddy has been ordered to take a 90 day vacation, by the State

of California. In order for this vacation to not permanently damage his

business, which supports himself, his woman, and his two 1yr old-ish

daughters, I have been summoned to come to the rescue! So, not only

is our friendly neighborhood Jonny Kat strumming his 6-string to the

delight of Hear Kitty Kitty, he is also putting plywood on windows across

the South Bay, which have been carelessly broken by criminal minded

foes who are hell bent on a free ride! The hardest part of this task you ask?

Assisting in the care of the 1 YEAR OLD BABIES!!!! During the writing of

this blog alone, I have been puked on, burped at, scratched in the eye,

and interupted 4 times! I'm typing with my left hand.

my right hand is attempting to keep a small wrioggling person from

single handedly ending this blog.....NOW! It's so much easier picking up

a huge pile of broken glass......er.....whre wAS I....AM I....oh ya.....off

the sidewalk, than managing two 1yr olds, simultaneously! It's easier

to set up an entire stage full of gear in 10 minutes, predict which song a

room full of club goers wants to hear, than figure out what a 1yr old

wants, before it bites your finger off! But no matter what, my buddy's

two 1yr olds are the sweetest lil things on earth, and well worth caring

for, even when Jonny Kat needs to battle the bad guys who break glass

in the middle of the night!!!!

Jonny .... er.....wher was I....oh ya.... Kat!!!!
