The Rats
In A Desperate Red

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.

Fred & Toody
Live at Third Man Records

Another hot brace of live recordings made within the analogue haven of Jack White’s Third Man Records and cut down to 7” single length. Fred & Toody are a spin-off project of the band Dead Moon, featuring two of that band’s three members. For the Third Man crowd they played a set of powerful and personal rock music: two tracks are presented here.

Dead Moon
Nervous Sooner Changes

Dead Moon played a gnarly form of rock music, bluesy enough to be released on the legendary Mississippi Records. Nervous Sooner Changes almost channels The Rolling Stones at points, quite a compliment for the genre. A good balance between mournful ballads and straight up rockers on this 1995 album, now reissued on LP.

Dead Moon
Unknown Passage

Reissue of Dead Moon's highly sought after 1989 album 'Unknown Passage'. This is the second album from the Portland four-piece, who combine punk and country and flourish it with a good lick of  unnerving darkness. Stripped-down and solid, the band was fronted by Fred Cole, who went on to form Pierced Arrows. Lovingly remastered and available on cd or vinyl.

Dead Moon
Defiance

Defiance, Dead Moon’s fourth album, is full of attitude and has songwriting chops to match. Originally released in 1990, this is the first time the album has been available worldwide on CD. Defiance includes the fan favourites and Dead Moon classics, Dagger Moon, Johnny’s Got a Gun and Walking on my Grave.

Dead Moon
In The Graveyard

Issued worldwide on CD for the first time, Dead Moon’s 1988 debut album, In The Graveyard is a visceral rock classic. Dead Moon sound like a meeting of minds between AC/DC, Love and The 13th Floor Elevators. The three-piece from Portland, Oregon are made up of singer and guitarist, Fred Cole, Toody Cole, Fred’s wife on Bass and drummer Andrew Loomis. In The Graveyard will make your heart beat faster.  

Dead Moon
Live at Satyricon

At the height of their grunge powers in the late 80s and early 90s, Dead Moon have been disbanded for a while. But today, we live under a waxing moon: relive the days of yore with this live recording from their powerful 1993 performance  Live at Satyricon. Mashing punk, country and lo-fi garage together, these old remastered recordings are still brimming with energy.
