Rat Columns is
the mutable musical project of David West, an artist as prolific as he
is diverse in his output. West is the driving force behind the groups
Rank/Xerox, Liberation and Lace Curtain, he was also a member of Total
Control, and most recently debuted a solo album proper. Whether its
forward-facing punk or turning his hand to crafting sleek prisms of pop,
West’s credentials check out. Rat Columns is no exception, always
central to his vision and returned to many times since its inception in
Perth almost a decade ago. Over the years the band has morphed and
continued with an array of different friends from the USA and Australia,
always finding David West dancing through the long shadows at its core.
Working with many distinguished underground imprints including Blackest
Ever Black, Adagio 830, Smart Guy Records and RIP Society, Rat Columns
have left in their wake a trail of 7”s, EPs and two full length albums.
Now a third album, entitled ‘Candle Power’ is cued for release through
Upset The Rhythm. ‘Candle Power’ is packed full of chiming guitar pop,
cutting in with moments of soul, disco and experimental plots.
