    When it comes to timeless and catchy early 80s US punk sound in these fast and modern times of ours, Rats Rest from Kansas City could take a big part of the cake. If you like the old-school hardcore punk, melodic with a raspy fucked up voice, expressive vocals, mid paced drum-hitting going fast, heavy bass lines, catchy guitar works with a hard-rock attitude / playing, alongside lyric themes about depression, drugs and death, written with a personal view, then this is your new favourite band. I’m reminded of a depressed Marked Men, a bouncy No Hope For The Kids, or a street-punk-infused Leatherface as I spin these tunes. They get it pretty much right, from the well-sung vocals to the guitar solos that occurs over some moody, incessant bass-lines, its always super catchy! So put your sticky fingers on a copy of this and enjoy it!

lyrics

rolling with the crazies
down the hill into the forest
where all the trees have smiling faces
and the wind comes blowing in
a thousand singing voices
to me it's all there is

then the day came when
the bitter wind came blowing in
i could feel the whole world shrinking
the savage images of
the leaders' philosophy
trapped inside now
never to escape
frozen with disbelief
and standing beside myself

it just can't be
not just a sad little boy's dream
didn't wanna see
now there's a scared little boy's dream
fermenting all the things
that can't be realized
and it takes up all of my time

it just can't be
not just a sad little boy's dream
everyone can see
i got a scared little boy's dream
trapped inside never to escape
to guide me when everything's at stake
you won't find me
begging to please
the leaders' philosophy
