The Catheters display an impressive disregard for the tidy rules of punctuation on their just-released third album, Howling ... It Grows and Grows!!!. (Yep, all those exclamation points are theirs, as is that mysteriously placed ellipsis, which they must've picked up in its original package from run-on devotee Fiona Apple.) No such luck where their native Seattle's noise-grunge tradition is concerned: Howling respectfully picks up where Mudhoney left off a decade ago, trampling a well-trampled path from garage-rock to post-punk (not to mention from the stage to the bar). But at least they sound like they're having a good time. If they didn't ... how boring would that be???
