Welcome to the Rise of the Rat blog. The title of this post sums up what the general topics will be, in a tongue in cheek kind of way (the second bit, anyway). There'll be updates on what Rise of the Rat have been up to, reviews on albums we like, and gardening tips...that's right, gardening tips – that's the preparing for the apocalypse part...although, growing a few fucking turnips wouldn't save you if an apocalypse did eventuate, but it's a cool catchphrase. So what does growing vegetables have to do with rock'n'roll? Nothing. Who gives a shit – it's my blog – I'll write about what I want.
