Tracks I would love to hear the Rats do they haven't played in the reunion era (or very rarely)...

After seeing the three tracks from Citizens on youtube from Dublin. They had a magnificent energy to them. I'd love to hear any of the new tracks live just for the experience. 

But in terms of older tracks. They've never/very rarely have done since the 2013 reunion.

Do The Rat

Drag Me Down

Elephant's Graveyard (I missed when they did this one)

A Hold Of Me 

Dave

Blind Date

Kicks (I think they did it at Butlins but I missed it)

Keep It Up

Never In A Million Years

Back To Boomtown

 I would completely agree with this great selection, apart from A Hold of Me. I would substitute it with He Watches it All or Hard Times. Or anything else from Surfacing they don't currently play.

I think they should definitely try out some tracks they don't normally play in general. Europe Looked Ugly, Icicle in the Sun, perhaps bring back Me and Howard Hughes. I'm curious how they'd do these, honestly..

100 per cent. Rats and Geldof have always been underrated and overlooked. That's a good wee album you are listening to. Love. Thinking voyager two type things. chains of pain big romantic stuff

My fave on this album is hole to fill but like all of them not really a bad track at all on this l.p. As such then s.a.d.and how to compose and finally live target then I'll start on my vinyl collection ( is imports etc) and see how we get on

I love both The Vegetarians of Love and Happy Club albums. Great Song of Indifference, Hole to Fill and Roads of Germany are my personal favourites.
