    Ratatat at the Corner Hotel, 15/5/2009..

    It’s funny how you can get into bands. Sometimes you’ll be approaching the wrong side of consciousness at a house party and find yourself stirring as somebody plays the latest long-player from some four-piece from the South, and manage to remember to pick it up over the next couple days, and fall in love with it. Sometimes you’ll hear them in between tracks on the wireless, not get the name of the song or the band, and be forced to wait another two weeks before you find out, manage to remember to pick it up over the next couple days, and fall in love with it. Sometimes you’ll already have the album, know it’s more than decent, and then slowly become obsessed with it as you’re exposed to more and more thirty second snippets of perfection on the promo for a British TV channel’s winter programming.

    And so it is with Ratatat – enough of the opening of ‘Gettysburg’, followed by enough pathologically repetitive start-to-finish plays of Classics and their latest album LP3 while wandering the UK…
