We've been quiet of late but we've been working on our two new projects, 'The Surgeonaires' EP (with Tigger from Hustler on Bass) and an EP from Steve Haynes (Hustler's Lead Vocalist).
Today, 8th February, we are please to announce the release of The Surgeonairs EP,
‘A DELICATE OPERATION’
The EP comprises three tracks: Love Lies Dead, Me & My Guitar and Delicate Operation.
Download or Stream the tracks from Spotify or and of the other major streaming platforms.

We hope to get the Steve Haynes EP out on 1st April, sooner if possible.

26th February 2021
All's well at Black Cat. CD's for all three Hustler Albums are available from the key European Amazon outlets as well that this site. Unfortunately, only 'Reloaded' is currently available to download and stream but we hope the Remastered versions 'High Street' and 'Play Loud' will available online in the near future.
5th December 2020
Finally, we’ve now released the remastered versions of Hustler’s first two albums, High Street and Play Loud. High Street also included two Bonus Tracks; ‘Happy Days’, which was originally the B side of their first single (‘Get Outta Me ‘Ouse’) and ‘Suzie’ now available for the first time.
11th October 2020
A while ago, Universal Music inherited the Hustler back catalogued and we are currently talking to them about getting the remastered versions of the first two Hustler Albums (High Street & Play Loud) released before Christmas.
Two years ago, Ken Lyons (aka Tigger) managed to persuade the lovely people at Universal Music to let him have access to the original Multi Track Tapes and Master Mixes. Like a child in a sweetshop, he spend many hours in the studio turning knobs and pushing faders. He remastered both albums and produced two bonus tracks and so we at Black Cat are ready to go. Fingers crossed eh?
18th August 2020
Release day (7th August) went off with a bang. Album sales went through the roof and Radio Caroline are back on board with Hustler too. They were the first radio station to play our first single back in 1974. DJ, Barry James, featured our album on the 7th August 2020 (Release Day) on his show and played 4 tracks. Reloaded was his ‘Album of the Day’. Plus, the lovely Suzy Wilde played 'Stay Close To Me' on her show on the 17th August.
If your favourite radio station is not tuned in and turned on to the new Hustler album yet, help them out, give them a call and make a request for your favourite track.
