Alley Cats LV is the new group combining the talents of Zachary Throne, Brent Muscat, Takashi O’Hashi and Stephen Mills. The group, bringing them together at long last, has finally released an EP.

If you have followed the Vegas music scene at all, you are surely familiar with Muscat and Throne; they were both long-time Sin City Sinners members. Muscat was a founding member of Faster Pussycat, and Throne is known for his musical as well as acting abilities. Cats in Boots guitarist Takashi O’Hashi hails from a criminally underrated 80s band that never got the proper credit, and it is great to see him active once more. This is a great group of artists, and fans from their respective past bands are certainly eager for this release.

We only get six songs on this EP which total just under half an hour, but it is a safe bet that you will be satisfied with the end result. In its fairly short duration, it rocks and covers a lot of musical ground. From straight-up rockers and to power-pop anthems, slower stuff and laugh-out-loud sing-alongs, there is a little bit of everything to be found here. It is the culmination of a great group of musicians, each of which bring something worthwhile to the table.

While this EP from the Alley Cats LV is a brief release, it is certainly an excellent one from four great musicians. If you want to see what these guys are up to these days, this EP is a great place to start. A strongly recommended release!

A die-hard fan of classic rock and metal music, Taylor has been writing album and concert reviews since he was 16 years old, and continues to do so, having done well over 1,000 reviews. He is also a fan of video gaming and cinema, and has reviewed a number of games and films as well, old and new alike. His thorough and honest (some would say brutally honest) reviewing style has won him the respect of hundreds of music fans and musicians alike, both local and abroad, and the ire of just as many others. Despite being one of the youngest attendees at classic hard rock/metal shows around Vegas, he is also one of the most knowledgeable, having gained the unofficial nickname of “The Eddie Trunk of Las Vegas.” In addition to reviews, Taylor has written and self-published three books on classic hard rock bands, and is a regular participant in rock and roll trivia contests. Taylor also holds a masters degree in special education from the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV), and has appeared on the hit History Channel television series Pawn Stars. His dream is to be able to one day make a living from writing music books and reviews.
