Ska/reggae band, The Bionic Rats, have just released their second album, “…should be seen and not heard”.
With band members hailing from Ireland, Poland, Italy and Brazil, The Bionic Rats came together from the ashes of Dublin reggae outfit, Kingsativa. They mix the rhythms of Ska, 2tone, Reggae and Rocksteady into their own special brew of Jamaican heart and Irish soul.
The album is available to buy at independent Dublin record stores Freebird, Wicklow St and Spindizzy, Georges Arcade, as well as on Bandcamp here http://thebionicrats.bandcamp.com/
If you like their sound, you can catch them live supporting the legendary Lee “Scratch” Perry in Dublin’s Button Factory on Saturday 16th February, headlining the Tramore Ska Festival on Saturday 30th March and every Sunday from 7:30pm in Dublin’s longest running ska/reggae residency, “The Sunday Skank” at The Foggy Dew, Fownes St, Temple Bar.
