Together with eight other labels we present you our second 7″: Rat Licker by Dead Neanderthals.
2020 has been one of the worst years in recent history: a global pandemic with deadly outcomes, hateful police brutality leading to cold-blooded murder of countless black people and a wack conspiracy theory about a satanic, pederast network of the elite which further derailed society.
These circumstances have been a direct inspiration for the Rat Licker 7” by Dead Neanderthals. Rat Licker is a scorching 12-tracks-in-9-minutes record that not only reminds us of the early days of Dead Neanderthals, but also of classic bands like Naked City and Painkiller. Frenzied saxophone squealing and coked-up punk rhythms are joined in unholy matrimony to drill a hole in your skull.
To emphasize that not all has been lost in 2020, the 7” is brought to you by a collective of like-minded record labels and distros that want to operate in unity to show that together we can achieve much more than alone.
Rat Licker is brought to you by: Utech Records (US), God Unknown Records (UK)
Sentencia Records (ES), Burning World Records (NL), EveryDayHate (PL)
Moving Furniture Records (NL), Consouling Sounds (BE), Saw-Whet Distro (CA)
and Dead Neanderthals (NL).
7″ limited to 300 copies or digital and available in our webshop.

Dead Neanderthals is composed of two members, Otto Kokke on Saxophone and Synthesizer and René Aquarius on drums. After first collaborating online, they began improvising live, and have released several albums. The Quietus Jazzhammer/Stormannsgalskap as a mighty “pounding headache of rampaging blastbeats, distorted foghorn drones and radioactive seagull squalls.”
