Profile After singer Dave King had left the band Fastway, he got a call from David Geffen and John Kalodner in 1990 to come to America to found a new supergroup. With guitarist Mandy Meyer (Krokus, Cobra, Asia), bassist Cain Carruthers (The Untouchables) and drummer Mike Alonso (The Meanis) formed the band Katmandu, and quickly the band came to the studio to start recorded. 

The album was produced by John Purdell and was released in 1991 on Sony Music. The album consist of twelve songs well perfrormed had a couple of minor hits. Two singles were released.  “The Way You Make Me Feel” and “When The Rain Comes”. Because of the anticipated global success of Katmandu with minor success only in Japan the band dissolved later in 1992. Singer Dave King went to the band Flogging Molly and guitarist Mandy Meyer was a member of  Gotthard.

    This was one of the most underrated bands of the early 1990’s. I still listen to their music. Sad they didn’t do more! This cd gets a 10 out of 10 from me!!

    I really enjoyed seeing them supporting Little Angels at The Manchester International 2 and went out and bought their album on cassette afterwards. Later I bought it on CD too and I still listern to it regularly. Its still as good now as when it came out in 1991. I wish they had recorded more.

    I have only ever bought albums from unknown to me support bands I have seen live on maybe 4 occassions.

    Katmandu was one, Stagedolls, Dirty Deeds and Red White and Blues was the other.
