Before you read this or watch the video, have a drink!!
Rats of Unusual Size were a punk band that originated in the bowels of the East Village in the wild and wooly late 80s NYC. There was a very vibrant underground punk and rock scene (pretend the late Peter Graves is reading this to you) sometimes called Scum Rock by people who were insiders. After recording a few albums, some singles, playing a multitude of gigs all over the country, leader Jim relocated to Flint MI and formed a second incarnation of the Rats of Unusual Size. After more shows, records and further touring he relocated to San Francisco where he is a theater impresario and co-owner of The Dark Room Theater.
The other Rats, like Daniel Simpson Day — whereabouts unknown.
