Backyard Camping

by Ratboy Jr. W/ Dog on Fleas



Rat on Fleas or Dog on Rats, or.... Whatever you call this collaboration it was years in the making. We have been talking with our friends Dog on Fleas for a long time about working on a song together and now it has finally happened. We originally released this song on a limited addition cassingle. yup, a cassete. Did you get one? Well, if you did, you should sell it on Ebay for a Schmillion bucks!

So, want to know how we did this song? First we laid down a groove. Chris on drums, John on bass, Dean on clavinet, Matty on piano, and Tim on guitar. We then improvised our words. yup, we did. 16 takes of various words and noises. This is take 13. with a little of 10 and a dash of 3.

We think you can tell how much fun we had, if not, turn it up!


Oh boy, you have to listen for yourself.


released May 2, 2012
Recorded at No Parking Studios by Dean Jones.
