The scholarly among you may well know a Catherine Wheel as a medieval torture device named after St. Catherine, a martyr who died by it. Others may know a Catherine Wheel as a somewhat unpredictable firework.
But Catherine Wheel today is probably the best rock 'n roll band of the 90's. No, wait! I hear you groaning, thinking "Oh God, another groupie with a web page," and trying to click your way outta here as fast as you can. Sure I like the band, and I'd like to introduce them to you, but even if you know and HATE the band, why not hang around and at least play some of the games?
Anyway, if I'm a groupie, I'm not your typical one. I've been a rock 'n roll Joe (with tales of woe) all my life and have a pretty large record collection. But I tend to like stuff everyone else likes. So when I find a band I like (especially now that I'm middle aged), I just assume everybody else has already discovered them, all their albums are platinum, and I'm late on the bandwagon. When I find a band that pleases me as much as Catherine Wheel, I'm surprised and a bit upset to find out they're a "best kept secret." If I enjoy them, chances are lots of you other rock 'n roll Joes will like them too.
Oddly enough, I've little to say about the band! You can find plenty elsewhere. I will say that they are a four-piece band from Britain, have been around since the early 90's, have made the charts on several occasions even though they've never had a "monster" hit, are a guitar-oriented band that defies any more specific classification, and they are outright nice folks. I encourage you to find out more about Catherine Wheel (or CW as devoted fans call them) by cruising this little virtual town I've created, called CWville. I hope over the months and years to gradually add more and more to the pages, as I learn more and more about web programming, and as time permits.
You must have figured out by now that the town picture on the main page is your springboard to all of the activities and links provided. As you pass the mouse "hand" pointer over the picture, your browser's status bar displays the associated activity you will go to if you click there. If the status bar says, "Welcome to CWville," there is no activity associated with that portion of the town. If you have Netscape 4+ or Internet Explorer 4+, little boxes pop up to tell you about the section of town your mouse is pointing at.
This page is a part of the Catherine Wheel web ring. You can go to other sites in the ring where you'll find the more typical - and more useful - fare, such as lyrics, discography, concert experiences, etc., by clicking areas on the picture at the bottom of this page. These other web pages are (mostly) from younger fans who are far more up-to-the-minute on TV videos and concerts and bar scenes, CW trivia, etc., than this old codger, so they'll do better with that stuff than me. I just wanna have a little fun - and I do hope you enjoy your stay in CWville! Y'all come back now, hear?
