The Good Rats Just Keep On Keeping On

Wayne Robins, Good Times, 30 January 1974

YOU COULDN'T find a more classic showcase for the Good Rats than Ubie's O.T.J, in West Islip. Monday night means beer blast at Ubie's, Wednesdays it's mugs for a quarter, and weekends are oldies but goodies, with Danny and the Juniors or Ben E. King or Tony and the Fists. But Thursday nights belong to the Good Rats, a recently revived first generation Long Island rock 'n' roll band that is playin' for keeps.
