RATS AS BIG AS DOGS- Stupid suits you
What sort of dogs are we talking about here? Petite French bulldogs
named BonBon? Great Danes? Obvious but important questions that need
to be answered. Perhaps another reason I dont go to Suffolk
much if they have those types of problems. But maybe I should. I digress.
Though Im aware that REPEAT have already reviewed this, I thought
Id have my tuppence worth. Recorded by Seymour Quigley and another
bloke whose name isnt as familiar, Rats as Big as Dogs also
feature Bury St Edmunds Shannon Hope, who brings a good bit
of melody to the otherwise intensely loud, proper punk
music. The quartet dont miss a beat, mainly because their drummer
is phenomenal; heavily indulging in the past, they sneer their way
through songs in which I dont really know what theyre
talking about but those words I can make out sound pretty intelligent
and meaningful. Sometimes disillusioned, always with a hint of rebellion,
RABAD dont want to hold a tune- they want to screw it, stamp
on it and then probably lecture it about the state of the government
in a catchy, repetitive style. And why not, eh?
Tracks like the hard-hitting Print and Generous
when it suits should secure a place in everyones diaries
when they next have a gig. Should be a lot of fun. Take earplugs though.
I dont have to. Im already deaf.
