The Null Device

The Chaser has more articles online. Of particular note: "Harry Potter fans warn against dangerous effects of Bible", "CAMP X-RAY 'INHUMANE': Ruddock asks for brochure".. and don't tell me that Ratcat have reformed. (If so, wonder what they would sound like; would they just playing their 1990-vintage skater-pop hits on the nostalgia circuit for all the mortgaged new parents who used to be into them when they were kids, or have they jumped on the mook/rap-metal/big-yellow-shorts bandwagon and tried to reach out to a new crop of suburban teens?)

As far as I know, they've never really gone away, maybe taken a break perhaps, they just got dropped by their record company c.1993 or whenever.

What have been doing in the interim? Playing suburban RSLs? Doing the bar mitzvah circuit? Touring Japan, where they're massively popular? Or something else altogether?

john paul jones rehashed one of his old songs with them for a soundtrack a few years back, and they're done a couple of few low-key fuzz pop albums, plus the recent best-of. plus simon day's probably kept doing his day job (graphic design, natch) to supplement the publishing income. rsl's? i doubt it, the audience wouldn't be young enough. see also: the sell-in.
