Unabashed rock and roll classics done up by Tokyo duo The Golden Rat.
Tokyo duo The Golden Rat (featuring Mr Ratboy and Hiroshi the Golden Arm) have released a dazzling
collection of songs - interpretations of tracks which inspired both musicians throughout their adolescence.
This is real rock n roll which left a lasting impact and together, they've dug deep into those influences to
deliver an album that some are already labelling a masterpiece.
Known as the 'Japanese Johnny Thunders' Hiroshi The Golden Arm honed his slashing-guitar style in
the 1980's before forming Tokyo trash kings The Remains (who morphed into The Golden Arms and in 1998 issued their piÃ¨ce de resistance... 'Gimme Some Lips'). In a career touching four decades, the multi-talented Mr Ratboy has plugged in and played with some of rock n roll's elite: Sour Jazz, Motorcycle Boy, Pillbox, Bebe Buell, Jeff Dahl, Marky Ramone & The Intruders, Kevin K and Freddy Lynxx to name a few.
On this album, The Golden Rat stamp their sound all over tracks by Brian James, The Heartbreakers, Lords of The New Church, Lou Reed, The Stranglers, Patti Smith Group, The Little Roosters, Mitch Ryder, The Rolling Stones, Magazine, The Ramones, Modern Lovers, The Saints, Ramones, Radio Birdman and The Only Ones. What originally started as a way to deal with the Covid lockdown of 2020, quickly morphed into something more and these two seasoned musicians realized that the demos they were recording, were in fact, from-the-heart renditions of songs that came from deep within - and has resulted in their ultimate rock n roll memoir - 'We Got A Right'
