While the Damned are smoothing a pathway to chart success and adulation with a new Tony Visconti assisted album, one former member is still managing to take the unpopular route by battering his own way in the music world. Rat Scabies is set to release his first solo album in the shape of “P.H.D. (Prison, Hospital, Debt)”, and he has given us a taste of what’s to come with a song called “Chew on You”.
With 11 original tracks as well as a version of Louis Prima’s ‘Sing, Sing, Sing Rat climbs over his drum kit to reveal hidden talents in other areas, as well as writing, playing guitar, keyboards and drums he is also handy with his own Cigar Box guitar. Getting Jesse Budd on vocals and Nick Oblivion on Bass, this looks like something to get hold of and play loud on the 18th of May.
