THE RATS 'The Rats' LP
First LP, recorded in 1979 by Portland punk legends – the Rats. Fred and Toody Cole of Dead Moon, Pierced Arrows, The Range Rats, The Weeds, The Lollipop Shop and a million other bands along with Rod Rat present a punk rock masterpiece. Stripped down and lo fi. The record has a slight psychedelic edge and some definite roots in early rock and roll. The record that started to define the aesthetic that would later inform what Fred and Toody accomplished with Dead Moon. Nuts and bolts great songwriting on songs such as Teenagers, World War 3, Social Indigestion and more.
