Blackcat Elliot’s sound is a mixture of CBGB’s era punk (Ramones, New York Dolls, the Clash), 70’s hard rock/power pop (Aerosmith, vintage KISS, Cheap Trick) and 90’s grunge. “There Is No Good In Us”, as well as previous recordings, “Never Come Clean” and “Threads Tearing From The Inside”, are available on all digital platforms as well as on CD. So, give yourself a listen and see why Blackcat Elliot has been Albany’s Favorite Garage Rockers since 2001.
Black Belt Jones was formed in early 2020, under the cloud of the emerging pandemic.

Josh Gibbons aka “the silent shredder” is the current lead guitarist for the band and adds credit from bands such as Carriers, The Morning Sound, Tell Keller, On Blur and Bvlcony. Lawrence Byrne is the bass player for the band, returning to the instrument after a 10 year hiatus, following the dissolution of the Albany band “Surface”.
