Nightcat - #1 House Rule (1991)

This single is one that reminds me why I enjoy doing these blogs. You just never know what you're going to find out about these artists! I thought this was just a random one off single by some pop tart, but instead Nightcat was a creation of Marvel Comics! Marvel creator Stan Lee wanted to develop a female superhero who crossed over into the real world. Like Dazzler, this hero was also a rock singer. So they released an issue of the Nightcat comic book and hired actress/singer Jacqueline Tavarez to embody Nightcat in real life. They recorded an entire album simply titled Nightcat. This was the only single. Both the comic and album bombed and Jacqueline was fired, she claims because she appeared in a music video by Long Island Lolita Amy Fisher's ex-lover Joey Buttafuoco!! She has since appeared nude in the film Tromeo And Juliet and that's about it. For more on the Nightcat story, go HERE. I would have died for this had I known it existed back in the day, as I was both a music and comic book fiend! As for this song, it's actually a really good dance pop track (like something from Pajama Party, whose 'ghost' vocalist Nikki Gregoroff also has credits on the Nightcat album and is likely the one actually singing this), and the remixes give it a tasty house edge. Apparently the rest of the album is very rock oriented, but I would still LOVE to get my hands on it!

    It's much more pop than rock, in my opinion, and it only has nine tracks.

    01 - #1 House Rule
    02 - Let Me Be Your Only Girl
    03 - If You Love Me
    04 - I've Finally Found Someone
    05 - Don't Change
    06 - Say You'll Be Mine
    07 - In The Night Time

  4. Somebody just hit me up for the Nightcat comic book. Oddly, I vaguely remember reading it 20 years ago but didn't realize there was ACTUALLY an album... which is how I wound up here. Thanks Sarah and Nasty G! If anyone wants the full book, choose your preferred format:

    PDF, CBR, Gallery
