The Ratz have a one minute song called I’m Fucked – which says it all really. If the whole album was just that minute it’d be fine, you’d still get the whole trip.

Fast, furious, high-impact, all-guts-no-glory punk rock that was born in the gutter and is probably still lying in it right now.


Came from the sky like a 747. Classic Rock’s least-reputable byline-grabber since 2003. Several decades deep into the music industry. Got fired from an early incarnation of Anal C**t after one show. 30 years later, got fired from the New York Times after one week. Likes rock and hates everything else. Still believes in Zodiac Mindwarp and the Love Reaction, against all better judgment.
