Mad Rats – Speed Kills Ep
I have been writing Nuno for a few years now, and while we were originally trading TIME X stuff, he was telling me about a new project he had going called THE FIENDS. He sent their first recording and it was smoking fast hardcore. We talked about possibly releasing something, and after a few months, agreed on releasing that original tape. They changed one member and decided to change the name as well, to MAD RATS. On a side note, in Brazil, the fake old-school Vans are called MAD RATS (our Brazilian friends pronounce it “mad hats”), so I’m suspecting that this has something to do with their name choice.
