Tales from the Rat House
Tales from the Rat House is a zine from San Francisco, California, U.S.A.
This was a publication in the mid 1980's written for punks with a bent towards left wing politics and humor. The principle editors were Joe Britz, Larry Livermore and David Hayes who were housemates in the "Rat House." There was close affiliations with the band M.D.C. who once played on the Rat House roof to protest the motorcade of the Pope. Both Larry and David would work closely together on Maximum Rock 'N' Roll and the Gilman St. Project music club, eventually making the Lookout! Records label.
