THE RATS at Koma F, February 26, 2010

Posted in THE RATS with tags , on Februar 27, 2010 by mischalke04

This weekend Köpi is celebrating its 20th birthday with a huge festival. I was there for the Friday event and it was massive. The site was muddy and puddles everywhere because the snow was finally melting after two month, but it didn´t keep way more than thousand people from showing up. A great testament to the vitality of the squatters movement and the anarchist punk scene.

There were many groups playing last night but the only one I saw was  the Rats from Umeå. I got to meet Johan, one of their two guitarists, before the show and he told me they had taken a plane to Berlin and it felt like summer for them because in Umeå it was still minus 25° Celcius.

The Rats are not on tour and were invited to the Köpi Fest exclusively. Deservedly so because they absolutely destroy live. They have the best set-up for any rock´n´roll group: a solid backing band of smart but rather normal guys and a real animal for a front person.

They have played Koma F many times, one of their shows was my first post in June 2008. I I hope to catch them again because they rule.

Wenn  Hamburg schon mal nach Berlin kommt muß ich wohl mal kurz aus meiner Winterschlafhöhle rauskrabbeln und meine müden, alten Knochen da hinschleifen…
