11 Dec New Single Release from Lucy and the Rats, “This Situation”
A collective comprising of Lucy from the Ramones influenced pop punk trio, The Spazzys, who gained grea prominence across the globe following making headlines in Australia. Lucy has now assembled together a bunch of deadbeats and outcasts from the punk rock underworld of London and starts rehearsing. Manu, Mike and Joe, who were together in (the punk band) Michael Jackson become the Rats.
Splitting time between recording their debut album and touring all around Europe, (including a tour last month supporting The Buzzcocks) it has been a very busy time for Lucy and the Rats but they have still managed to record and release a pair of great singles. Lucy and the Rats sophomore single, “This Situation” b/w “Melody” are two more gorgeous slices of their Powerpop – Girl Group hybrid.

It doesn’t take long to find record labels interested. Monster Zero release their first 7″, “Girl”; Surfin’ Ki the second one, “This Situation” with Dirty Water Records taking on the digital duties for both singles
When you listen to Lucy and the Rats, the melodies become power pop tunes and after a few rehearsals (if you could call it that) they start recording them. There you go, what you get from that is Lucy and the Rats, a kick ass punk band playing Lucy’s catchy melodies.
