LIVE @ OLD SCHOOL STUDIOS with MR JASON – Saturday 22nd December 2012
RATS AS BIG AS DOGS – I go back a long way with the various members of this band, apart from Oliver Swift, who I don’t think I’ve ever met. He’s dead to me. Hehe. Jay I met during the first week that I worked in Thetford Music, a local Mon & Pop (mainly Pop) musical instrument shop in Thetford, in the U of the K. We quickly became friends, and have been for over 20 years now, at one point being in a hardcore band called “Volunteers” together. Shannon I met when she did her highschool Work Experience at Old School Studios, when she was about 15. Reuben I met when he was in teen-garage sensations “Thee Vicars”, whose early gigs I booked, and I recorded most of their back-catalogue. This band is unlike any of their previous bands, though I guess it has tiny elements of each of them.
