In the Middle is the first single to be taken from Rat The Magnificent’s debut album The Body As Pleasure, coming out on the fiercely independent TTWD Records in Spring 2018.

“Muscular, fuzz-drenched post-punk” Joyzine
“Stomping, Cramps’ish, punk-blues” Dexter Bentley, Resonance FM

Featuring Ian Catskilkin of Art Brut/ Future of the Left, Ross Davies and Anna Dodridge of BBC Radio 6 Music darlings Hot Sauce Pony, RTM are a much darker and more foreboding prospect.

A motorik stampede of a song In The Middle is an ode to lust and the carnal acts where Anderson sings of the immediacy of desire.

The video looks at this paradigm, a ritual essay on the bright lights of the flesh and the darkness that can surround such things.

The single’s exclusive 2 b-sides feature Jen Macro (Hurtling, MBV, Graham Coxon, Charlotte Hatherley) on guitar, and were recorded at Brixton Hill Studios with Nick Howiantz.

Cheel Ghar & Rat the Magnificent LIVE! and also NOT LIVE!

Cheel Ghar, KLLR, Modern Men and Rat the Magnificent all have records in the pipeline, much further down the pipeline than they were a while ago. The ever glorious Bradley Hemsell has been using his hawk-like ears to make them all sound like DESTROYERS.

Brad’s also been on business with some buddies of TTWD the VERY NASTY and BRILLIANT Swallowing, who are on the excellent Outsider Art label. You can pick up their record online, 100% recommended, it will fuck you up.

Rat Le Magnificent and Cheel Ghar have a couple of upcoming shows, LIVE LIVE LIVE. Cheel Ghar are making it up north (to Sheffield). Something to behold in the flesh. Find out more on our EVENTS page.

KLLR have the tiniest of teasers available online.

Cheel Ghar represented themselves well, including a guest spot for Dan on stage with NTB.

We raised £85 for Sense, which makes a fun night worthwhile.

Rat the Magnificent have also been back in the studio with Brad Hemsell fiddling around with noises. The record is happening…
