Our favourite Dutch post-punks Rats on Rafts are flying in from Rotterdam this week for a special one-off collaboration with members of Pere Ubu and Happyness at London’s Moth Club on Sunday night. Here’s a picture of them above playing last years Incubate Festival!

New music maestro John Kennedy has given the show a shout on his Radio X show after playing Rats on Rafts’ version of ‘Some Velvet Morning’, “Amazing, that really is quite a radical re-working”, he commented.
