The Babylon Whackers

July 30th, 2008

If, like me, you like raggae and punk music, then you’ll love The Babylon Whackers, whose first album, Happy Days With…, is being released on August 11th by Manchester’s own Rebel Alliance Recordings.

 ‘We’re now taking orders for our first big release, the amazing Babylon Whackers album, ‘Happy Days With…’ which is being released on August 11th, just in time for the big show in Islington. The Babylon Whackers is an all-star UK punky reggae party featuring our friends Jonny One-Lung (ex-Filaments), Babar Luck (ex-King Prawn) and Majah Tunder with guest appearences from members of Suicide Bid and the King Blues… if you’re a fan of the Clash, the Specials, Desmond Dekker, the Beat or the Filaments then this CD could very well be the soundtrack to your summer!’

If you want to check out the band, then head over to the Rebel Alliance site where you can download a free track and, if you like it, pre-order the album. If you are going to buy the album, then please buy it from the Rebel Alliance site as the company is run by Manchester punk band Sonic Boom Six and they need all the support they can get and hopefully we’ll see them put out more albums by other great bands.

I know this post seems like advertising, but I do feel that people need to support these guys and I know the album is going to be superb.

It’s finally back home

July 23rd, 2008

Yes, my Xbox 360 is back from repair and running great (fingers crossed), so I’m back online and will be racking up the kills, but mainly deaths, soon enough. I also finally get to play The Bourne Conspiracy since it arrived the day that my 360 died and will probably post my thoughts on the game at

It’s Alive

July 22nd, 2008

Hello, and welcome to Mallrat-Designs, the home of me, TheMallrat.

I’ve left this place with a ‘coming soon’ placeholder for way too long now and have decided to do something with it. Here I’ll be posting my thoughts, my artwork and anything else that I feel like posting.

I will also be changing the look of the site when I get a chance. This design was just one of the standard templates that I had to choose to set it up.
