The Bandname"The Ratmen" came to be because at that time there was a Batman revival going on. Bassist Ron found that so silly that he thought it was time to ridicule it. In came with The Ratmen. Their band t-shirts had a drawing of a fat rat on it. During the early days we had a second guitar player,Peter Fol, but only stayed for a few gigs to play then left which then become only us three. Walter, singer guitarist, was the genuis of the band.
