Ricky Rat “Crossfire Summer” 7″

TRASH BRATS’ guitar player Ricky Rat has just released his first solo album “Songs in C Major Love” and elegantly introduces it with the single “Crossfire Summer”(vinyl on New Fortune Records), a great power pop tune with a well-dosed mix of early KISS and HEARTBREAKERS guitar riffs emphasized by a melodic and catchy chorus. Ricky is on lead vocals with the help of his old bandmate Brian McCarthy and this works very well.
The B-Side is a cover of the BAY CITY ROLLERS ‘classic “Saturday Night”, a song that totally fits with Ricky’s music and glammy universe.
Ricky Rat will be back in Europe in March/April 2012 to tour with his road rock’n’roll comrade Kevin K, and there might even be some solo shows! Meanwhile, you have some very cool tunes to listen to here!/Laurent C.http://www.reverbnation.com/rickyrat
