Rat Columns is the mutable musical project of David West, an artist as prolific as he is
diverse in his output. West is the driving force behind the groups Rank/Xerox,
Liberation and Lace Curtain, he was also a member of Total Control, and most
recently debuted a solo album proper. Whether its forward-facing punk or turning his
hand to crafting sleek prisms of pop, West's credentials check out. Rat Columns is no
exception, always central to his vision and returned to many times since its inception
in Perth almost a decade ago. Over the years the band has morphed and continued
with an array of different friends from the USA and Australia, always finding David
West dancing through the long shadows at its core. Working with many distinguished
underground imprints including Blackest Ever Black, Adagio 830, Smart Guy Records
and RIP Society, Rat Columns have left in their wake a trail of 7"s, EPs and two full
length albums. Now a third album, entitled "Candle Power' is cued for release through
Upset The Rhythm.
