Catch 22

New Jersey ska-punk combo Catch 22 were formed in the autumn of 1996 by singer/guitarist Tomas Kalnoky, trumpeter Kevin Gunther, and drummer Chris Greer. Recruiting bassist Pat Calpin, trombonist Jamie Egan, and saxophonist Ryan Eldred, the group spent the next two years touring relentlessly, selling out all 2,000 copies of its self-released demo, Rules of the Game. Signing to Victory Records in late 1997, Catch 22 issued Keasbey Nights the following year, quickly becoming one of the best-selling bands in the label's history. The grind of touring ultimately became too much for Kalnoky, however, and upon his exit from the roster (he would later go on to front ska-punks Streetlight Manifesto), the remaining members of Catch 22 tapped new frontman Jeff Davidson; with Calpin then assuming guitar duties, new bassist Pat Kays was brought aboard for the 1999 EP Washed Up! Alone in a Crowd followed a year later. Davidson departed the band in March 2001, and Catch 22 were still looking for a replacement when November's Washed Up and Through the Ringer was released. The album was a sort of compilation; it contained the Washed Up! EP and some rare tracks, along with several live cuts and two new songs that found Gunther and Eldred sharing vocals. This vocal dynamic continued for 2003's Dinosaur Sounds, an album met with mixed fan response. Catch 22 Live appeared in October 2004; an accompanying DVD included bonus features and live footage shot the previous August at the Downtown in Farmingdale, NY. The band continued touring, including a stops at 2006's Bamboozle and Warped Tour festivals. Catch 22's next full-length was a concept album that followed the life of Bolshevik revolutionary Leon Trotsky, entitled Permanent Revolution. It was issued in June 2006; the band later headlined a nationwide tour with Voodoo Glow Skulls, Big D & the Kids Table, Suburban Legends, and more in tow. ~ Jason Ankeny

I can admit that Keasbey Nights 1998 is much more energized and all around better than Keasbey Nights 2006. But it stops there with Catch, I'm glad Tom left and then made Streetlight, a much more talented band. Same thing with him leaving Gimp, if he didn't we would be stuck with grunge Nirvana-esqu e Tomas. But Tunalips and Mrs. Butterworth' s Indestructib l e Bomb Shelter are great songs.

This has more energy because they actually wanted to do it the only reason the streetlight version was released was to avoid pissing off catch even more than they already were

Streetlight' s recording of Keasbey Nights is so much better. Streetlight is just a better band. Catch 22 isn't bad, they just don't measure up to streetlight.

So good! Catch 22 is ska in the purest form!! Streetlight loves suburban legends!!!

gotta agree with m-boy93, keasbey nights, alone in a crowd then they just went downhill... though atleast we got streetlight

washed up and through the ringer.

Keasbey Nights and Alone in a crowd are their only good albums, and their live one shouldn't even be up there, it sounds so much worse than their recorded songs. It's a real shame the only Keasbey Nights is the Retrack by Streetlight manifesto, I felt the Catch 22 version was more energetic and better overall.

permanent revolution is a very good album, but it cannot rival what tom has moved on and done with streetlight. he is a great talent and streetlight is more proof to that than catch 22 was

THOMAS KALNOKY... is in some reggae band now i seen them at CHEESEQUAKE FIRE HOUSE IN OLD BRIDGE NJ... they are kinda weak but i have to agree he was one of the best ska/punk vocalists i ever heard

YOU GUYS NEED TO GIVE ALONE IN THE CROWD SOME LOVE TO

thomas kalnoky, to me, made catch 22. He was probably the best vocalist but what i've heard of permanant revolution sounds good.
Report as inappropriate
Jim, I agree with you, Permanent Revolution is AMAZING! The sound is improved, the lyrics are actually interesting (which is something I find unique to Catch 22 and Streetlight, ) and the reggae-ness of it is...the best. Btw, even though Catch 22 and Streetlight are kinda rivals, I don't think anyone needs to take sides, they are both awesome groups.
but WHY IS PANDORA MISSING KEASBEY NIGHTS AND DINOSAUR SOUNDS??
Report as inappropriate
I think Permanent Revolution is a great album! It has a refined sound that is not present on some of their earlier albums.

Dearest Forkspoon,
While there is no such thing as a 4th wave of ska yet, Streetlight and Catch 22 are paving the way for the new wave of Ska!
That is all.
Report as inappropriate
Alone in a Crowd is the only album they have that's really worth your time.
Report as inappropriate
Keasbey Nights is one of my all time favorite albums regardless of who does it better. It's still an amazing Catch 22 joint.

I loved them live. One of my favorite concert going moments, ever. Ever!

just a personal opinion but i really dont think that 22 shuld have done a concept album, its still an ok album and i love the band, its just keasbey nights and alone in a crowd were much better. imo

really awesome sound! love it!!

would catch 22 and streetlight be considered 4th wave ska or third wave? IS there even a 4th wave?
Report as inappropriate
As tomas put it "It was the lesser of two evils." If anyone wants discuss either band feel free to let me know.
And to whom ever posted the bio about catch 22 should understand that Tomas didnt leave because touring was grinding on him, he left to pursue his college education in art. He went to the university of savannah, GA
Report as inappropriate
Catch 22 died with keasbey nights in my opinion. Once Tomas left the vocals went downhill in every way possible. I used to be a die hard catch 22 fan and then I found streetlight manifesto. Streetlights music is much more meaningful and full of a lot more talent. I could careless about who does keasbey nights better, because it doesn't really matter. Streetlight didn't want to do release the album, but victory was going to re-release the original without re-recording any of it.

wow grassroots way to freak out over someones opinion..i think streetlight does riding the fourth wave and a couple other songs better. That said, Catch 22 kicks a**!
Report as inappropriate
why do they need my name, your a fucktard! streetlight did a worse version of every song on keasbey nights. You are a f**kin dumbass. its all because of the bass line. pat did such a better line on bass than josh. streetlight ruined keasbey nights. great band. i still like you tomas, dont worry.
