They say there’s a fine line between inspiration and imitation, but Leeds Rockers China Rats manage to maintain that line in the sand perfectly. If you could cut (metaphorically) through their new track ‘Deadbeat’ it would bleed The Damned/The Clash and that’s why I love it. China Rats produce a cocktail of lo-fi, reverb-filled punk, which is delivered in an aggressive and passionate manner that helps keep the Punk-spirit alive and well in 2013.
China Rats release their upcoming EP ‘Don’t Play with Fire’ on September 30th and play a show at London’s Seabright arms on October 9.
