the rats-teenage radio



awesome super basic punk from 99. if you asked the man on the street what punk sounded like, this would probably be it. 3 chord songs, raw recording, a drum beat (just one) with no rolls, no frills and no cymbals bar the hihats and songs like "d'ya wanna root?". cd also contains a killer cover of wire's 'mr suit'.

the rats used to play pretty much every weekend, mostly at the hyde park hotel, i have good albeit blurry memories of this band. guitarist don rat went on to form scumrock band the homicides after the demise of this band in 2001
