Friday From the Vault – Ratatat

One of the great lost joys of gigs was the pre-gig mix tape. Many a band treated it as a demonstration of how cool they were, with carefully selected cuts from the trendiest acts demonstrating just how down with it the headliners were. Nowadays, most bands just bung on the bassists iPod, but it can lead to unexpected moments of joy. Why, in a venue the other evening, I was reminded of the delights of Ratatat’s wonderful ‘Seventeen Years’. Enjoy.
