Unpack the Rat
The legendary concert show
Five of the sexiest English Lovers of all time join forces on this once-in-a-lifetime night to remember to forget!
Listen as Jake Shenanigan Banigan, Jimmy LeB, Mike the Knife and the Big D rasp, moan and croon their way through times hard and high, floating their improvised tunes on ivories tinkled by Mr. Heartbreak Erharter himself, supported of course by the hippest rhythm-section this side of your pelvis, featuring WolfMan on double-bass and the man they call Sticks, on drums.
Chances taken, wagers lost, conquests made, wives swapped…the chequered histories of these macho men will be remembered in the warm glow of whiskey, obscured by the haze of countless cigarettes, and dressed up in black tie and French cuffs.
On this night, no soul is too bare, no lie too big, no chord too diminished…

So if you wanna pay the rent, you gotta have a job, but work is a four letter word.
Nobody knows that better than Mike the Knife, Jimmy le B, Jake ‘Shenanigan’ Banigan and the Big D. They’ve been there, done that, and they’ve got the songs to prove it.
Accompanied by the legato labours of “Heartbreak” Erharter and the White Shoes Orchestra, the Gentlemen of the English Lovers lament the working man’s lot… from a discreet distance.
After all, it’s hard to swing a hammer when you’ve got a microphone in one hand and a drink in the other.
