Stray Cats – Brian Setzer


The Stray Cats are an American rockabilly band formed in 1979. They are best known for their hit song “Stray Cat Strut” and for helping to popularise rockabilly in the 1980s.

An interesting anecdote about them dates back to their early days in the New York neighbourhood of Long Island. At the time, the band played in local bars to an audience of mostly punk rock fans. One day, an audience member started throwing beer cans at the band during their performance. Instead of stopping or getting angry, the Stray Cats started playing louder and faster, using the cans as percussion on their instruments. The audience was impressed by their cool attitude and their ability to turn a negative situation into something positive. From then on, the Stray Cats gained popularity among the punk rock public, who appreciated their unique blend of rockabilly and punk energy.

This anecdote shows the importance of attitude and perseverance in the music industry, and how an incident that could have been negative ended up helping the band to gain recognition.

Longevity of carbon pigment inks
Tests carried out in the USA, in the Wilhem research center, guarantee a longevity of 150 years if these inks are associated with acid-free papers, with the Hahnemühle or Canson paper ranges we work with.
On a more technical aspect, the carbon inks are encapsulated: it is coal dust mixed with a binder which allows to deposit it on the paper. No difference in density between the printer output and after drying. There is a slight evaporation of the binder which stabilizes the pigment on the coating. It remains then the coal dust, which will give the density and nuance of the black and white impression.
The inks are made from pure monochromatic pigments chosen for their resistance to light, available in seven progressive shades, from light gray to black. They are specially designed to reflect light back to the viewer’s eye and completely eliminate color anomalies such as metamerism (which changes color depending on the light source). The Piezography System, monochrome inks, provides a unique photographic look that includes depth and brilliance throughout the image surface.
The formula allows for a longevity that reaches record levels when printing on archival and fine art papers. The print quality is at least equal to the best silver baryta print, if not better.
