Re: Rat Patrol 2LP acetate

Rat Patrol has a lot of post-Vietnam America vibe. The malaise of the 70's as everything seemingly went to shit: sweaty, grimy. I wonder how much their time in NYC in 81 influenced Rat Patrol? I think quite a bit. Definitely an influence. But "Hearts of Darkness/Apocalypse Now" was the big influenc...

So who's making money from this?
Proceeds will be forwarded to Bernie so he can finally install a set of functioning ears.
:mrgreen:

Hmmmm. The idea of advertising a bootleg where someone will be making money from The Clash/Joe on this site just doesn't sit right with me.

Re: Rat Patrol 2LP acetate

Wow. I caught this thread on my way out of work yesterday, but did not look or listen until today. This is quite the find. Rat Patrol has long been my Holy Grail of lost recordings. There is something amazing about Rat Patrol. It has this hazy, druggy, heat shimmering vibe to it. The music is hip. ...
