ONE LITTLE INDEPENDENT RECORDS ARE PROUD TO ANNOUNCE ‘PRATS WAY UP HIGH’, A COMPILATION TRACKS BY THE PRATS, HJAVING NEVER BEEN AVAILABLE ON VINYL LP GREEN PRESSING LIMITED TO 1,000 UNITS.

‘Prats Way Up High’ is a compilation of tracks by The Prats, featuring demos and songs from their John Peel session recorded in 1979. It was 1978 in Edinburgh and the spirit of punk had hit high school as four friends got together to form The Prats. Paul McLaughlin, Dave Maguire, Greg Maguire and Tom Robinson were then aged between 12 and 14, and while their instruments were basic - including a cardboard drum kit - their enthusiasm carried them through.

The late John Peel was a fan and long time supporter of The Prats. In 1979 the band recorded a Peel session, which the broadcaster played with considerable enthusiasm. As he said at the time: "... this session has put me in a good mood for the rest of the weekend... it's terrific...a great session!"

The legendary broadcaster also offered his fee from a DJing appearance to finance a single release. 1980 saw the release of The 1990s Pop EP on Rough Trade Music. The seminal EP contained four tracks - Disco Pope, Nothing, TV Set and Nobody Noticed. Disco Pope received significant airplay, particularly from John Peel and is still a college radio favourite in the US. The end of school in 1981 meant the end of the Prats. “Bands are like marriages between four people,” Paul reflects. “You just stop getting on with each other.”
