THE PRATS - Die Todten Reyten Schnell 7'' 1980

Puuhhhhhh..... my dear friends... I have to admit, I slept little, much party & drunk and I'm still not sober. What a match it was? Tension to the end and very exciting. I think both sides lost a lot of energy and nerves that night. I will not say much about the game, you all saw it and the better team won in my opinion, and this post is dedicated to the Scots who played really well and need some consolation: The Prats were founded late 1977 in Edinburgh and comprised the Maguire brothers Paul (vocals/guitars), Greg (guitar/vocals), Tom (bass) and David (drums). Their first vinyl appearance was on the Earcom 1 compilation in 1979 with three tracks, In the same year they recorded a session for John Peel's BBC Radio 1 show. Peel also offered his fee from a DJing appearance in Edinburgh to finance a single release by the band. A series of 7Inches then followed, including General Davis and Die Todten Reyten Schnell, which was released on a German indie label called DaDa Records. In 1980 followed their last record called The 1990's Pop EP via Rough Trade. But the end of school in 1981 meant saw the demise of the Prats as they went their own separate ways into the big, bad world. Cheers & Prost!


  1. Noch immer nicht nüchtern??? Da hilft nur eins, noch ein Glas und die Lautstärke auf 10!!:)

  2. I'm still a bit upset about the game. Eintracht were slightly better than Rangers. I also couldn't sleep that night, but more to do with how devestated I was! Also had to be up at 4am for work. Oh well, at least we won the Scottish Cup today. Anyway, congratulations and all the best for next season.

    1. I see it the same way, Eintracht was a bit more willing and had the better chances to score, but the 118th minute could have brought Rangers the victory if Trapp hadn't been there. Well, and a penalty shoot-out is always pure tension and 50:50. I think the win is deserved. Don't fret any further, it's been a very good season for the Rangers and we're looking forward to the next one.
