“Rats” (by Ed Schrader's Music Beat)
You may know Wham City's Ed Schrader as the host of The Ed Schrader Show and The Ed Schrader Podcast, or as the voice of David Bowie trying his hand at standup comedy. Ed Schrader's Music Beat began with a floor tom, a little bit of reverb on the vocals, and a three-year tour of the USA. Now joined by bassist Devlin Rice (Nuclear Power Pants), Ed Schrader's Music Beat is bringing to mind minimalist Swans songs stripped to their essence with wit, concision, and a message. Providence's mighty Load Records is responsible for the tour-only "Rats" 7", and will release the debut ESMB LP Jazz Mind in fall 2011.
