IS a strange com­bi­na­tion – two tradies, a veg­e­tar­ian butcher and a guy from the army who have united to play ’90s-style punk. But it’s a com­bi­na­tion that works for lo­cal quar­tet The Black Cat­a­pult (pic­tured), who say their sound is akin to ‘‘the lovechild of Grin­spoon, Un­writ­ten Law and New Found Glory’’. Drum­mer Peter Hart says he and his band­mates have been good friends for a long time. ‘‘We all get along re­ally well which trans­lates on stage,’’ he says. ‘‘Ev­ery­one has the same amount of cre­ative in­put.’’ The Black Cat­a­pult will re­lease a new sin­gle, Late, next month. Hart says the song re­lates to singer David Reynolds’ con­stant tar­di­ness. ‘‘He likes to push the bound­aries,’’ Hart laughs. ‘‘David’s late to all re­hearsals, record­ings – you name it, he’ll be there even­tu­ally.’’ Hart says the band write about myr­iad lyri­cal top­ics. ‘‘We write about what we think the flavour of the month is,’’ he says. With the band set to re­lease a sec­ond EP next year, Hart says they will cel­e­brate the re­lease of Late with a sin­gle launch party. ‘‘It’s an in­vite-only event but we will be giv­ing away tick­ets to peo­ple who have ‘liked’ our Face­book page,’’ he says.

The Black Cat­a­pult, Zeus Baby, An­gel At My Ta­ble and Smok­ing Martha play Tat­tered ’N Torn, at the Miami Tav­ern, Satur­day night
