Rat Paws: How To Influence People And Talk Dirty tape

Rat Paws: How To Influence People And Talk Dirty tape

The sole member of Rat Paws used to have a much-missed show on WCBN and also used to be in a “new rock alternative” band called Hot Boss. She’s returned (probably permanently) to her home city of Montreal, so we don’t hear much of her in Ann Abor anymore, but this very short limited-edition-of-25 tape managed to squeak out. There’s only five songs plus two alternate takes, and a lot of them cut out after a few seconds and then crash into the next one. Aside from some drums by Fred Thomas on one of the versions of “Astrology Sux”, it’s all vocals and guitar. The slow songs are sparse and longer and awkward and the faster ones end before you know it. The whole thing couldn’t possibly be more raw and lo-fi. Would this tape possibly make any sense to anyone who doesn’t already know Rat Paws? It’s hard to tell, but if anyone else in the world is interested, there might be a few copies left via the Life Life.
