Bio

Bootleg Rascal have just finished up supporting Sticky Fingers on tour around Australia month or so back and have been at it in the studio - squirrelled away once again writing in their Rascal den, well into the hair in one of Sydney's armpits.

And the first dub blood to hit the ground from those sessions, is Oh I Know, a hypnotic, muscular melodic song that features their growing musical dynamic and their unique creative "charms". This is the band building toward an album in mid 2015.
And it furthers their post disco 70's style infectious grooves once again a sick riff and old mate's half hoarse half sexy vocals - a snaking bass line snorted off a stomach.

Chuffed to see you guys continually building as a band. It goes without saying that this is the best you've done so far.

Sounds like their buddies Sticky Fingers have been influencing the Rascals. This one's got a mad groove to it.

Super funky and a real catchy tune. Effortlessly laid back.
