Tuesday, November 18, Rats return to Maida Vale. Tonight, of all nights, The Boomtown Rats were the featured artists on BBC Radio 4s Mastertapes, the series which looks back at a key album from an artist's career. This recording of the programme took place at the BBCs Maida Vale studios where the band recorded their Peel sessions back in the late s.
As Kentish Town is a quick jaunt around the overground, this was a nice easy trip. There was a very lively crowd, self included, at the front. Place was absolutely buzzing at the end of Rat Trap with the whole of the circle stood applauding. Headed to the bar for Diamond Smiles, and saw the the rest of the Forum was very crowded.
Support: Republica. Support: Republica My second annual pilgrimage to Cambridge to see the Rats in a smaller venue than those I would normally see them in London. A slow train journey allowed me to consume the best part of a nice bottle of rjoca, however it did mean I missed Republica and ended up a little away from the stage, however, The Junction is pretty compact, so even if you had your back to the wall, you'd still be as close as you could ever get to the stage at The O2 or a festival.
The Rats had a new swanky video to replace the projections of the last tour, even if the visuals are more or less identical, except a montage of them playing at festivals when introduced by Geldof during the encore of Diamond Smiles.
Also a new twist on the snakeskin suit story which was welcomed by those who had undoubtedly seen the Rats last year at the nearby Corn Exchange. New York: Virgin Books Ltd.
