Dancing with the Star-ving
“Dancing with the Star-ving,” b/w “Me,” the FREE digital single from No Wave pioneer David Rat. Rat, former drummer/composer from the seminal NYC noise rock band Rat At Rat R. Rat At Rat R, along with The Swans and Sonic Youth, were major forces in NYC noise rock in the early to mid ’80s, and helped establish alternative music as we know it today. His checkered past (though a little blurry) is filled with tiny glimpses of beauty, trash, misery, hate and hope.
After years of relative obscurity, David has recently revived his career as an artist with a new memoir and a reissued, remastered edition of the first Rat At Rat R album Amer-Side. His memoir, Happy Ending, has been published by Open Books and is available in paperback and electronic formats.
This single, available for free digital download on all formats, is taken from David’s forthcoming Dromedary album The United Hates, due out this summer.comments powered by Disqus
