The Kittens were a Canadian three piece noise rock band, with some country influences, from Winnipeg. Shawn Fedorchuk, Russ Desjardine and Steve Kellis started Kittens together after they disbanded their old band, Batsweat, recruiting drummer David Kelly and released the album Like A Plough on cassette. Russ (who went on to play bass in Artificial Joy and helped found The Bonaduces as drummer) and Steve then left the band and Jahmeel Russell joined on bass. Their albums were released on Sonic Unyon. After disbanding for almost eight years, they had a reunion show on News Years of 2007. Russell is now a member of Projektor. David Kelly died in Los Angeles,CA in March 2008.
