“Yorkshire Rats are a high energy punk / rock n roll band from the north of England, their songs are infused with
social issues and points of view of life in the UK. They blast out tales of frustration and woe and this band can make most depressing of struggles seem almost superficial. A cocktail of thundering drums, motown-esk bass, a wall of guitars and socially charged lyrics. What else could you need?”
Bands, just like people and animals, are not created equal. Some are destined to fall apart, some to disintegrate in a flurry of narcotic cocktails, some fail to fulfil their potential, some never go anywhere, and are forgotten, lost to the mists of time, while others are content to merely drift through the scene rehashing the same tired formulaic tunes over and over again. Some bands however, bands like Yorkshire Rats, with their endlessly catchy, hook-laden sing-a-long punk rock anthems are destined for eternal glory and to become the stuff of legend.
