The Perfect Rat originates from the power trio-based, improvised musical explorations of Gary Arce, Greg Ginn and Bill Stinson that began in 2000. The resulting out-freakage deftly mixed grooves and structured ideas with the energy and spirit of Improvisation. The Perfect Rat concept was revisited again in 2005 when Gary Arce (Yawning Man / Ten East / Sort of Quartet) organized a recording session based on the power trio jams of what officially became `The Perfect Rat`. Referencing a more angular, raw and experimental side of his guitar playing compared to the normally blissful and surfy style associated with Gary`s Yawning Man work, The Perfect Rat is a seething, energetic groove that flows like molten lava. Joining in the mix is the legendary and prolific guitarist Mario Lalli (Fatso Jetson, Orquesta del Desierto, Ten East) and the combination of Arce and Lalli is a language unto its own. The rhythm section features legendary guitarist Greg Ginn (Black Flag / Gone), laying down some heavier-than-gravity, grooved-out bass lines merging with the hard, modulating drumming of Bill Stinson (Ten East, Fastgato, CD6) and also saxophonist Tony Atherton (Bazooka, The Mentones) navigates the resulting musical terrain with energy and soul. Jack Brewer from Saccharine Trust finds the words that will sear an impression into your mind. The Perfect Rat crunches jazz, punk and hyper-space jamming into a churning, grinding musical exploration.
