A Historic on-air performance by The Rats on Drinking From Puddles !!
The Rats were not only one of the best Punk Rock bands ever to come out of Portland, Oregon…The Rats were one of the best Punk Rock bands ever…period! A direct pre-cursor to Fred & Toody Cole’s universally beloved & longest running (of many) bands, Dead Moon, The Rats originally reigned from 1980-1984, releasing three classic full length LPs, all highly sought after collector’s items (and now receiving the much anticipated re-issue service via Portland’s Mississippi Records label).
The Rats perfectly captured the urgency & energy of the still young Punk movement of the time, while still penning tunes melodic enough that they burrowed into your brain for life.
