From the FatCat Wikipedia entry:

FatCat originally began in 1989 as a record store in Crawley, West Sussex, formed by Alex Knight, Dave Cawley and Andy Martin. It moved to central London in 1990, and originally specialised in Detroit and Chicago-based techno and house music. The store closed down in 1997, and the record label was born in its place, initially releasing dance and electronic 12"s.

I found this piece in the 'Hammersmith & Shepherds Bush Gazette' dated 1st August 1997: “London's Fat Cat Records, the first stop for aspiring DJs, has finally closed its doors. The Monmouth Street shop, which has provided rare dance music from all over the world since 1991, sadly ceased trading after a massive rent hike.”
