New Signing: Lucy And The Rats

lucy and the rats

Wipe Out Music are delighted to welcome the infectious and charming garage pop sound of Lucy And The Rats to our roster.

Lucy And The Rats are Aussie punk rock legend Lucy Spazzy‘s new London backing outfit. Their sound came about like a lab experiment gone wrong; the most delicate of hamsters being savaged by the filthiest sewer rats whilst humming the sweetest of sweet melodies. But with Manu (Thee Tumbitas) on drums and Mike Animal Cannibal and Joe To Lose (Los Perros, Johnny Throttle) on the twin guitar assault, these rodents had some bite and, voila, Lucy and the Rats were born!

Their sound is chock-full of mean hooks and warm irresistible melodies; Lucy’s delicate voice and harmonies sitting on top of what has become a brilliant powerpop backing band.

The band have spent the past few years playing all over the world and the next stops are Japan and Australia, to where they will depart shortly after supporting the Buzzcocks and playing onstage with powerpop legend Paul Collins (The Beat, USA).

Their new self-titled debut LP was released recently and was recorded in Denia, Spain it was produced by Johnny Casino and Jim Diamond  (White Stripes, Dirtbombs).
