A place with no Facebook is the debut solo album by G under the name “a cat from Alpha”.

Recorded in a very short time in the fall of 2017, it was intended as a gift to friends and fellow musicians. Mixes were made on the fly, hardly taking more than a couple of hours, giving the record a rough and authentic sound.
Few handmade packaged cds were made and the album was briefly available on bandcamp for free downloading.

During the 2021 lockdown G spent some time remixing it to give his album a proper release.

“A place with no Facebook” is a departure from the indie rock of the Cats from Alpha and finds G in a more acoustic territory. Some cats came by to add something here and there but it’s mostly G alone, singing and playing all instruments.

A place with no Facebook is available in digital format, on streaming services and on cd.
