Forgotten Fridays: Wylde Ratttz

If you've never seen Todd Haynes's fantastic 1998 film Velvet Goldmine, you truly owe it to yourself to do so. It's basically a David Bowie biopic without licensing. Once you watch the film, you're going to need to check out the soundtrack. In addition to the classic songs of the period, it also included a song by Wyde Ratttz. Wylde Ratttz stood in for The Stooges, and consisted of Ron Asheton (The Stooges), Mark Arm (Mudhoney), Mike Watt (Minutemen), Don Fleming, Jim Dunbar, Sean Ono Lennon, and Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore and Steve Shelley. They did a cover of The Stooges's classic "T.V. Eye" that made me desperate to hear more. Alas, there was no more.

Until yesterday. Apparently the band got together to for a second session that included originals and a cover of The Pretty Things. You shouldn't even be reading this any more. This is pure gold, and I can't believe this has been sat on for over twenty years. This is a supergroup to end all supergroups featuring the biggest grunge/protopunk/punk/experimental legends of all time playing some killer protopunk/garage rippers. Do yourself a favor and check this out.

You can listen to Mark Arm sung "Hollow" below. You can (and will) get a copy of Wylde Ratttz's album via their Bandcamp. And then join me in hoping for a reunion tour.
