After the collapse of Fullerton Dam, Grant Fullerton and Brad MacDonald formed Madcats in 1977 feauring Bobby Blake on lead vocals (Mike McKenna Band). They were signed to Skyline Records and their self-titled debut was released, with a very risque front cover of a straight-jacketed woman in a cage, in 1978 through Quality, on gold coloured vinyl.

The album was picked up by Buddah/Arista for the US in 1979 and the cover art was altered so that a similar photo of the straight-jacketed woman was not caged. The record failed to ignite the US market and the band was dropped.

Domenic Troiano's Freedom label picked up the band for their second album, 'Streetgame', which was released in 1981. By this time bassist John Erdman had been replaced by Clarence Greer.

The band was able to do some moderately successful touring but split up as the '80s wore on.
