The Boomtown Rats – Rat Trap

All the hype around new ‘IT’ girl Peaches Geldof got me thinking about her cool parents, Bob Geldof and Paula Yates. Being from Ireland myself I have a certain nostalgic pride for Bob Geldof and his band the Boomtown Rats (6 lads from Dun Laoghaire Ireland). The name “Boomtown Rats” comes from a gang in Woody Guthrie’s autobiography, Bound for Glory. This video looks like it’s from Top of the Pops. Awesome song…
