Was just playing on EastEnders in the Queen Vic, not for long, but it was definitely Rat Trap.

What is with soaps and chosing the Rats as background pub music?  When was the last time you heard the Rats on a juke box in a pub?  25 years ago?biggrin

I like playing their stuff, if only to annoy my friends who don't appreciate it smile

I play it at home and on my iPod, but I doubt if it is even available on a juke box in most pubsbiggrin

Its probably the Irish connection but there would be Mondays & Rat Trap on most jukeboxes here. I'll check uptown Sunday for any others smile

I'll have to have a look next time I get the chance and see if I can find either song, if anything is on there it would be Mondays.  Can't see it though in England!

Is this a new post on youtube - rat trap on the tube during 'in the long grass' tour

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95fjmQ_tmmc

some of the comments made about the exact time of the tour seem incorrect. I still have my 'long grass' tour ticket. Maybe I should scan it and send it to them.biggrin

The reasoning behind this thread (or where it started) was that the Rats aren't often played on the radio or TV in the UK so I was so excited to hear them that I had to report it.  I now have a new local rock radio station (Jack FM) and I've heard the Rats a number of times on there, I am very pleased to report.  It isn't always Mondays or Rat Trap either.biggrin

The Eurythmics are on there now.  They definitely aren't pants of any description.

Would love to hear later rats songs on radio they play a lot of old garbage a lot of the time so why not a brilliant band like the rats who released some fab songs over 6lps yet never seem to be played on radio yet a lot more obscure bands/songs are but it's their loss
