I actually used the definition of a Post-it in song lyrics once: “Sticks prominently to an object or surface / easily removed when necessary,” but don’t let that distract you from the facts that we have mapped out everything that we need to do in order to finish this new bunch of songs on a giant Post-it. Next step is to enter production mode and get some work done. We have one song in Danish, a lot in English and one cover song… stay tuned!

I’m no stranger to attention seeking band names (does she wear a rat suit? Spoiler alert: no). And I get oh so delighted when I see other band names, song titles or album titles in the quirky category. Here are a few of my personal favourites:
Gay for Johnny Depp
– if there was a Grammy for best band name, they should have it. They were a tour de force in brilliant (and often offensive) song titles. Google them if you dare. My favourite album title of theirs is:
What Doesn’t Kill You, Eventually Kills You
From the band An Emergency I bring you the songs:
Irony Nein Danke
Pulitzer Prize potential!
Peace Burial At Sea captures exactly how life feels at times with this song title:
I found the band Franska Mode Klubben on Myspace (guess my age), and this song title is just awesome:
I Want My CD Back
– didn’t we all know the feeling in the 90’s? Oh the pain! I’m still waiting/for my CD/put it in a bag/send it right away/come on/it really can’t be that hard. Brilliant!
Please enlighten me with your favourites!
Dusting off the cobwebs
Hello everyone, hibernation days are over! The rat suit is out from the attic and ready to rock again.
Since we last spoke we made 3 news songs and 2 babies. That’s almost and equal baby-to-new-music ratio that clearly shows were our focus has been for a long time.
That is all going to change now, because our new music playground has been build! No sandboxes, no swings, no slides, but everything you need to keep two wanna-be musicians happy gathered in our now soundproof garage/rehearsal space. Come visit!
Here are the before and after pics:
Take me back to south Tallahasseeeeeee
Thanks to everyone who came out to see the show at The Office Lounge! We had the best time playing for you and spending the weekend in Tallahassee, cruising in Lance’s old Ford Falcon Futura enjoying the pines and dinosaur trees, horses, deer, birds, everything fried and fatty, moonlit nights and loud music. The Office Lounge is a part of The Railroad Square which most of all reminds me of a mini version of Christiania in Denmark with a free and creative atmosphere. Check it out if you get the chance. And watch out for Gingers Meadows, Book of the Chow Chow and the young and talented Bees And Enormous Tigers who played with us.
Welcome to the old Jaguar car repair shop – now The Office Lounge.

Disneyland, check. Miami Vice, yeah that was cool. What now? Stop by the Office Lounge in Tallahassee Florida for a great Easter show by yours truly, Book of the Chow Chow and Ginger Meadows. It’s free and Easter treats are on the house.

Inspiration of the finest kind.
Vice Vice Baby
We are so happy to be featured on Noisy – Vice Magazine’s music blog. Thank you guys. What an honour. See what they have to say about the Rat Suit ensemble and the single ‘Arena’ here.
Words to wear
Rock out, sleep tight or walk the streets in a very special A Girl in a Rat Suit t-shirt. The words are fragments of the lyrics from the new single ‘ARENA’ and there are only 5 of each style.
The t-shirts are made by Philadelphia based Print Liberation who are awesome in every way. Quote: “no digital-print-iron-on bullshit” and made like this:
The size small fits my mom without being too tight, the medium fits my dad (it’s American Apparel men’s sizes). My parents took the pictures of the t-shirts in a classroom in Jutland on a Sunday while I was in New York. Thanks guys. You rock.
