Jon and Brad Catler have also toured the World as part of La Monte Young's Forever Bad Blues Band. The Catler Bros.' music often features intricate microtonal heads played in 13-limit Just Intonation which evolve into improvisation as well as Harmonic Clouds which can build to dizzying heights. No other band on the planet plays music quite like the Catler Bros. The Catler Bros. started in Massachusetts in 1970.
They became the town band and performed all over the East Coast. Brothers Jon and Brad moved to NYC in the early 80's and played in the band The Microtones, using 31-tone equal temperament and releasing the vinyl 'Cowpeople'. Jon hooked up with La Monte Young in the 80's, and in 1990 the Bros. became founding members of the Forever Bad Blues Band.
In 1996 the Catler Bros. released the CD 'Crash Landing' on FreeNote Records ij49-tone Just Intonation tuning. The drummers on this CD were Jonathan Kane and Virgil Moorefield. Read more on Last.fm.
