Rats on the Run – About

Communique No. 1 might have started it all with the need to break out and recast. What began as a travel blog with music at core moved to take on a life of its own.

From a bedroom in England, to bedsits in U.S, to dive bars and motels across 23 states, from Vietnam’s heat and all the way back again… this thing just continued to grow.

ROTR is now:

Above all Rats on the Run is a network… Of artists, promoters, music lovers. Be sure to look into these submission platforms and partners, it’s a pleasure to work along side them.

A collection of promoters and journalists, each submission gets sent to all blogs.

One of the leading music submission platforms for musicians. Global playlists, pluggers, promoters and bloggers.

Mentorship and feedback from a global collective of agencies, labels, music journalists and promoters.

Rats on the Run – The Creative side

Fritch (2018 – Ongoing). Open invitations for collaboration. One-off releases, soundtracks and releases.

Hollywood (2017-2018). Reflective aggression framed in restraint. Post-rock cut to snapshots of tough sound and dreamscape.

Dick Venom & the Terrortones (2010 – 2016). Sleazy schlock n’roll sci-fi glam-garage and psychobilly.

Mable’s Husbands (2005 – 2009). Loop stations, drum machines, a duo then full band. Scratching at under-belly balladry.

Rats On The RunHow to Contact / Submit

You are welcome to contact and email directly, or make use of the partners above (RCM Indie Collective, Groover, Muso Soup). As always, I will listen to everything.

For every review, I take the same care reviewing as you do making music. I gladly spend hours on listening, writing up, posting, adding to playlists and sharing on social media.

In return, I ask you to consider a £10 donation, or £5 for a one track single. This will only be asked for if I reply to your submission and guarantee a review. And I only review music I like.

I’m hoping you think that sounds fair. I look forward to supporting each other.

For submissions, enquiries, or anything else, please contact by email or fill the form just below.
