Biography

Noise-rock quartet Rat at Rat R was formed in 1981 by guitarist Victor Poison-tete. Originally hailing from Philadelphia, the band soon relocated to New York City’s Lower East Side and became one of the highlights of the NYC noise-rock scene. With Sonic Youth, Live Skull and Swans among their contemporaries, the music of Rat at Rat R can best be described as no wave guitar-oriented noise music.

Rat at Rat R has strong links to New York City’s avant-garde composer Glenn Branca. Branca’s cousin, Sonda Andersson played bass until 1988, when she left to play bass in Live Skull. Andersson was replaced by Walter Sipser. John Myers, guitarist for Rat at Rat R, is Glenn Branca’s conductor. David Howard replaced David Rat on drums for the self-titled album released in 1991.

Their self-titled album was produced by Barkmarket singer/guitarist David Sardy.
