Garage punk band, The Rats, hail from Portland, Oregon and were active between 1980 and 1984. In A Desperate Red was their final album, originally released in 1983. Band leader, Fred Cole, left to form country band Western Front before reuniting (musically) with his wife, Toody Cole in proto-grunge punk band Dead Moon. Despite all of his other excellent projects, In A Desperate Red is widely regarded as one of Fred Cole’s best records.
