Description:The Good Rats
November 14, 1978
Mini Cinema, Uniondale, L.I., NY  
WLIR-FM Broadcast

I was inspired to dig this one out of cassette purgatory by the rats crawling around in the beginner section of Guitar Hero II.  I know that these guys were well known on Long Island and in Rochester but I never really had a good sense of national exposure.  The band is still around and does lots of gigs in the NYC/NJ metro area. There should be several other FM broadcasts in circulation.  I would be interested in knowing if anyone has any.

The rubber rat I caught at another show around this time is still on my desk having faithfully followed me through 20+ years.

Note:  I was playing with new toys when I did this transfer last night from my own TDK MA cassette of the show. Being environmentally conscious, obsessed with SOA and/or pressed for time, I used the notes from an earlier upload of a different version of the show that was grabbed from another site at least two years ago. I have updated my lineage to be correct for this seed.  The MD5s will not match the earlier seed.  Apologies for any confusion.

The Good Rats Lineup:

Peppi Marchello - Vocals, baseball bat player, and rubber rat tosser
Mickey Marchello - Guitar
John "The Cat" Gatto - Guitar
Joe Franco  - Drums
Lenny Kotke - Bass

Notes:

"Klash Kabob" unfortunately cuts in the middle during the tape flip. The Rats were very tight
musically and it was nearly impossible to flip the tape at a dead spot in the action.

One of my favorite radio broadcasts, this concert takes place at the Mini Cinema which was mostly
known for showing underground movies including the Rocky Horror Picture Show. This 400 seat theatre
was packed for this event which wasthe 8th Anniversary of the cinema. Dennis McNamara of WLIR
was the mc, and the Good Rats even sing Happy Birthday to Dennis as it's his birthday too.
