News & Nuggets
*FEBRUARY 25, 2010* More cool Big Beat news, again courtesy Alec Palao: "Big Beat's contribution to International Record Store Day on April 17 is Rationalism! by soulful Michigan garage legends The Rationals. This limited edition 7" EP contains 'I Gotta Go Now' and 'Poor Dog,' the two most dancefloor-friendly cuts from the recent Big Beat CD anthology of their A-Square years, Think Rational!, along with an astounding, recently uncovered seven minute Yardbirds-like studio rave on 'Wang Dang Doodle,' full of mangled guitar and honking harp. Further vinyl Rats releases planned for later this year include a reproduction of their hideously rare Fan Club album.
