Rats In The Palace
The Positive Experience
This record is the result of the unique bond and performative style that we have established as we have grown together as people and performers. It brings together a combination of some of our favourite songs and improvised jams that took place throughout the evening. As such, it is a dynamic blend of the huge range of culture and musical influences and a testimony to the understanding and trust that we have found in each other.
It is a collection of passionately honest expression from a group of people who feel complete safety in each other's company, recorded live in a warm sanctuary during the depths of Scottish winter. It tells the story of the experience of a group of misfits: queers, foreigners and transfolk who gathered in the City and, years later, found a home in each other. It sings of heartbreak, defiance and our universal unity through the love of ourselves, each other and the music.
We made it ourselves, top to bottom and we hope you enjoy the ride. Come live the life of a Rat in the Palace.
