C Cat Trance were formed by multi instrumentalist John Rees Lewis after his departure from Medium Medium, taking the band's drummer Nigel Kingston Stone with him. The band are seen as members of the post-punk movement, but that's not all that is to say about their sound. C Cat Trance incorporated ethnic music into their compositions before world music became a popular genre. Their influences come mainly from Northern Africa and the Middle East. A lot of people have played with the band, creating a unique mix of pop, new wave, club and world music. Play Masenko Combo was the band's fourth and last album, originally released on Ink Records in 1987. For this re-issue, we have added rare tracks and the remaster was once more created by Martin Bowes of Attrition.
