First Long Play Record - Rats (The)

First Long Play Record
The Rats were very much a vehicle for cult figure David Kubinek, aka Kubie. Kubinec had been a leading light of the World Of Oz , a pop psych band who released a highly regarded album on Deram in 1969. He'd also been signed to Motown and he later had a solo album on A&M produced by John Cale. A talented original writer capable of beautiful tunes, haunting lyrics, obsessed with despair, drink, drugs.

'First Long Playing Record' was an album collection of Kubinec songs recorded by producer Adrian Millar with musicians brought in for the job (Adrian Millar had a history in the studio going back to engineering for Joe Meek, and by the 70's was partner in several production enterprises with Andrew Loog Oldham, of which The Rats was one). It really kicks along and is a storming rock album of the glam era, reissued and on CD for the first time.

Kubinec and Millar's Rats had one brilliant single released off the album in 1974 via the Good Ear label, the T-Rextatsic 'Turtle Dove', a classic Junkshop Glam single, and features as lead off track on the successful comp 'Boobs: The Junkshop Glam Discotheque' (RPM 298)
