Profile

Most probably know RatL from their first Ralph Records album, 1981's Songs for Swinging Larvae. But Dave “Ted the Loaf” Janssen and Brian “Renaldo Malpractice” Poole first began making music together about a decade earlier, as they outline in the somewhat patchy autobiography on their official website. One of their earliest influences was Tyrannosaurus Rex, the early, psychedelic folk incarnation of the band that would later come to be known as T. Rex.

After they hooked up with The Residents, RatL released a bunch of music, including reissues of some of their earlier material, three additional studio albums, and a collaboration with The Residents called Title in Limbo. But by 1988, after their album Elbow Is Taboo, they had decided to call it a day. Now, almost 30 years later, as the CD re-issue series completed, they decided to regroup and release a brand new album Gurdy Hurding.
