When guitarist RICK RIVETS left the fledgling NEW YORK DOLLS in 1973, he didn't switch gears so much as he just assembled one of the toughest US Glam rock bands of the era, THE BRATS, who with the help of Whiplash Records, released their debut single, one of the first independent "underground" singles to come out of the New York scene, along with Television's "Little Johnny Jewel." Released initially in 1974 on a defective pressing, it quickly slipped into obscurity until in 1976 when the label re-issued the 7" while that version of the band was no longer active, resulting in poor distribution and ultimately a failed release based on it's incredible potential. We have gone through the archives with the folks at Whiplash Records and culled out superior versions of theses two classic glam rock cuts, both cleaner and louder than ever presented before. Some may recall the vicious cover of "Be A Man" by SF Bay Area punk legends, The Infections on their debut LP as possibly their first exposure to the Brats, so its with great excitement to add the Brats to the roster of HoZac Archival with this sparkling and powerful proto-punk debut single, now presented with the trashy clarity and gritty city ugliness painfully intact. First pressing of 600 copies Black vinyl.
