I started Alcoholic Rat’s website in 2002 to share my gig and scooter rally photos, band memorabilia and a small gig guide. I chose its’ name as I was part of the all-girl scooter club from the 1980s called the Alcoholic Rats’ Scooter Club. Over the years I’ve tried to drop the name but it seems to have stuck!
As the internet progressed, I moved from Website to Myspace to Facebook, with a separate listings site for UK Psychobilly Gigs to enable bands and promoters to advertise their events, and for punters to find out what’s on in one place.
In addition to those, I also run the official band pages for the Guana Batz, King Kurt and Hancox, and a tribute page for the Klub Foot to share everyone’s memories and photos.
I decided to set up this blog to tie it all together again and enable you to get an email notification every time there is an update on any of the pages I run, so be sure to click the FOLLOW button on the main page.
To view old content and photos, click the links on the titles below:
GIG LISTINGS on Proboards – A month by month list of upcoming events in the UK.
GIG GUIDE ON FACEBOOK – Month by month photo albums for UK gig flyers.
(You can also contact me via messenger on this page to advertise any UK events by either sending a jpg flyer for the Facebook albums or the written information in the format of DATE ~ BANDS at VENUE ADDRESS for the gig listings page – Sorry but I do not have the time to copy all the information from Facebook event invites)
GUANA BATZ OFFICIAL FACEBOOK – I run this on the band’s behalf and post any band related news and photos. The band do not log into this page and there is no other website.
KING KURT OFFICIAL FACEBOOK – I run this on the band’s behalf and post any band related news and photos. The band do not log into this page and there is no other current website.
HANCOX OFFICIAL FACEBOOK PAGE – I run this on the band’s behalf alongside band member Gino and post any band related news and photos.
KLUB FOOT FAN PAGE – A selection of photos and memories that people have sent in. (This is a page I set up many years ago – I do not own rights to any of the photos and where possible have tried to credit them back to their original owner. The page has nothing to do with the original promoter.)
