SMART 030 


DAVID WEST, man of Perth now residing the Bay Area, adopted the nom de guerre RAT COLUMNS as a way of stepping away from his other outlets (past and present)—BURNING SENSATION and RANK / XEROX. Let’s just say it allows him to foist his pretty light new wave romance sounds on the masses all the while incorporating socially-maladjusted solo forms that may not be as obvious in his other work. For those keeping score, we have JAMES VINCIGUERRA (of current down-under punk-synth shredders / former SmartGuy artists TOTAL CONTROL) coming along for part of the ride. Sonically, the band brings to mind the soundtrack to an unmade John Hughes film scored by Joy Division/New Order with heaps of David Kilgour in the mix. Rat Columns: Four songs of dark, ill- fitting pop wanderings and mangled noises. Edition of 500 copies.
