For those of you who still don't have a clue, The BEAT RATS are as they describe themselves a "Merseypunk" band from NYC including FRANK MAX (guitar/vocals), PAUL GARWOOD (guitar/vocals). TONY MATURA (bass/vocals) and ROBERT “Mongo” PINNOCK (drums).
"Have Mersey!" is the long awaited followup to their brilliant 2009 debut "A Cellar Full Of Rats!" and it's been released by Kool Kat Musik in conjunction with Liverpool's Cavern Records.
If one cannot deny that The Beatles are their major influence, The BEAT RATS infuse into the music their own brand of punk and garage which in the end gives a real freshness to the whole record.
This record should strongly appeal to those of you who dig The KAISERS, The FLAMING GROOVIES and so on.
