Ratbones - Lost In East Berlin


  Following on from yesterday's dose of Soviet themed pop punk, here's something similar (and equally as good). Whereas yesterdays band, Silver Foxes, were from Australia, today's update features Ratbones who are based in Genova and Milan, Italy.

  Forming in 2003, they're a Ramones influenced 3 piece comprising of Ludo Ratbone (vocals/guitar), Pablo Raton (drums) and Andre Monelli (bass/backing vocals). They released their s/t debut album in 2013 and followed it up with the Ratwars ep last autumn. Check 'em out here : https://ratbones.bandcamp.com/

  The Ramones had problems with the KKK, Ratbones are having problems with the KGB, luckily for us those abduction issues led to great songs. This is Lost In East Berlin........

The KGB took away my babe, 
took my baby away from me 
The KGB took away my babe 
And I don't know what to do 

The Stasi agents took away my babe 
they took my baby away from me 
The Stasi agents took away my babe 
now I don't know what to do 

I am here lost in East Berlin 
And I don't know what to do 
East Berlin but the lights are blue 
and I don't know what to do 

The KGB took away my babe, 
took my baby away from me 
The KGB took away my babe 
And I don't know what to do 

The Stasi agents took away my babe 
they took my baby away from me 
The Stasi agents took away my babe 
now I don't know what to do 

I am here lost in East Berlin 
And I don't know what to do 
East Berlin but the lights are blue 
and I don't know what to do
