Rammerator


Rammerator are a rock superband formed in 2004 from the ashes of local Norwich legends 'Spastic Pudding.' Their unique sound is a combination of Will Croft's heterosexual guitar and vocals; Robbie Mcknight's bass, again heterosexual; Tom Yaxley's drums (very heterosexual) and Jacob Solstice's guitar which I'm told is rather heterosexual. All this adds up to a sound which Will assures me is "extremely heterosexual." Their debut e.p. 'Forced Entry' Read more on Last.fm
Rammerator are a rock superband formed in 2004 from the ashes of local Norwich legends 'Spastic Pudding.' Their unique sound is a combination of Will Croft's heterosexual guitar and vocals; Robbie Mcknight's bass, again heterosexual; Tom Yaxley's drums (very heterosexual) and Jacob Solstice's guitar which I'm told is rather heterosexual. All this adds up to a sound which Will assures me is "extremely heterosexual." Their debut e.p. 'Forced Entry' took just 16 hours to record and mix and is a remarkably powerful and confident first release from a band already well on the way to achieving their goal of playing a fifth gig within 2 years. Here is a breakdown of the e.p, track-by-track. 'We Like Rock' has been described by some as 'a masterclass in compositional limitations.' The chorus lyrics to 'We Like Rock' took 10 years to complete, Jacob having started work on them aged 8 and it wasn't until meeting Will in 2003 that the process began to speed up, eventually culminating in a eureka moment after a 12 hour writing session in 2004.

Listen to the chorus and I think you'll be as pleased with the end result as Will and Jacob were. Tom's drums were actually recorded underwater but the band came to a mutual decision that this was silly and re-recorded them in a more sensible environment. The drums you hear on the ep were recorded on a raft, a location that 'had all the ambience of water but with that extra dryness one gets from playing above the surface,' says Jacob. The powerful backing vocals were recorded using helium with the band singing an octave lower than normal to make it sound like they had inhaled no helium at all.

This is a potent example of the revolutionary recording techniques employed during their tenure in the studio. A lot of people believe the first line in 'Bitch Hot Woman' to be 'she's like chemical weapons killing blacks.' This may seem offensive but they are actually mishearing because the line is actually 'sheep like semi-cow wet puns, kill Lyng blacks' and as Robbie says 'There aren't actually any blacks in Lyng.' The song is notable for its twin solos by Will and Jacob. This was purely unintentional as Jacob forgot to carry on playing halfway through the solo and Will with cougar-like instinct launched straight into a solo of his own to save an excellent take. Highway Driving isn't really about driving on highways. In fact it is a clever metaphor for the rise of consumerism in today's Britain. When we say 'Oh yeah, Highway Driving!' what we *mean* is 'Oh yeah, we must put a stop to the 21st century's saturation of the marketplace by products we do not need and only want because we are led to believe so by bloated mass-media companies filling the minds of our children with lies.' Remarkably none of the boys have studied politics but as Tom says 'We're not ruling anything out.' The 'doom' section at the end of the song was originally at the speed of the first half and the first half at the speed of the doom section but the band played it the wrong round by accident and never looked back. Lost at Sea was written during the band's 'pirate phase.' All of them are in agreement that this was a big mistake and burnt all their pirate costumes and returned to their roots on the Japanese techno scene while still keeping the one good song from that 6 week period. Rammerator - exactly what it says on the tin: 'Approximately 2 servings per can.' Read more on Last.fm.
