"I have reviewed a lot of records and this live release from tommy and the Rats is one of the funniest things I have ever heard. For me there is always an awkward moment between pressing play and the music starting. In those moments I think to myself "dear god help me" or "please be gentle". When the first track from "Do not listen to this"(vol.1) "watch you pee".....all I could think was? who does this guy think he is?" then "pickle puffer/Bob Dylan riff"? hmmm. By the end of "reach around" I was really interested in finding out more about D'amour and his Rats. The four song disk finishes with "beat me" D'Amour's rendition of The Queers tune "love me". tommy and the Rats are a three piece with Steve Toland on snare, Jim Taylor on upright bass. and Thomas D'Amour singing and playing guitar. The record is a live recording and has a great stripped down feel. I saw this band in Boston and was amazed at the Rats explosive acoustic performance. S Green Other town Underground NYC
