So again we have another CD from the famous Massey hall show in Toronto on 28 March 1983. A good show, but how many releases do we need from one show?

Added another compilation on compilations page . It is a compilation called Live and Cult and is from 2012. It is the same songs as numerous other compilations. So don't waste your money if you have one of the other compilations already.

Added lots more on the Eventology page .

Added a new page: Facts, which will eventually have all kind of facts about the Stray Cats that don't have a place in any of the other pages.

On 25 May 1998 I started Anchorman's Straycats Site. The last modification I did was on 20 November 2002. I kept it up online until somewhere in 2003. I just didn't have the time anymore. I was busy with my own business, got married, had a total of three kids (actually the wife did, but you know what I mean).
Ever since the Straycats got back together I felt the itch again to do re-open the site.
This was also due to the fact that I was looking for some information that I knew was on my site, but I couldn't find it anywhere on the internet. So therefore I looked for my old files. I managed to salvage it from an old computer. But it was all written according to old and now obsolete standards. I worked with frames a lot. Which is an abslute no-no nowadays. So this old dog has to learn new tricks, called CSS and HTML 5. Not so hard actually, but still a lot of work. My old site was entirely written in Notepad. Some things change because it is now entirely written in Notepad ++. Yep no editor's, Wordpress or something like that. Because in the true Straycats spirit: Only the cheapest most inferior software went into the making of these pages.
True Straycats aficionados will understand where that is coming from. For the other 99% of the people it means that these pages will load like lightning! (and hopefully won't crash like thunder).

This site is 100% cookie free. There is only a small script on some pages. This is handled within your browser and doesn't use any external code. I have no Facebook plug-ins or any other social media plug-ins.

These pages are also 100% without advertisements. Just a bunch of info about the Stray Cats in an ordered way.

If you have any comments/remarks/complaints/compliments which you would like to make you can always e-mail the Anchorman.
