Demo/The Cat Empire is an independent 5-track instrumental demo released by The Cat Empire in 2000.
It was never released for retail sale but was sold at performances in clubs and bars when The Cat Empire were just beginning their career.
The demo consists of only three original Cat Empire musicians, Felix Riebl, Ollie McGill and Ryan Monro.
A copy was recently sold on online auction website eBay for approximately 350 AUD. It was rumoured that a roadie or close friend of the band was selling early demos on the 2009 UK tour.
