Matthew & Son


Can this be any cuter? Because when you take ‘Cat’ as your stage name, you will inevitably be photographed piled high with kittens. Also, we have two utterly adorable promo videos of youthful mid-sixties Cat Stevens trying to do the foppy pop star thing. (He later wrote more than one marginally grouchy song about having to do the foppy pop star thing.) Not everyone is well suited to prancing around in a velvet le smoking while surrounded by listless women dancers. Cat Stevens most definitely was not. The fact that, more than anything else, he resembles Bilbo Baggins, does not help his bid for teenybop idol. Soon, he would find his true calling writing heartfelt folk songs and bringing the ‘sensitive beard’ look into fashion.
