Last Summer to Dance

Andy and the Rattlesnakes

One of the great, lost, eclectic underground rock and roll bands in West LA in the early 1980s.

"Long ago in a place that is no more - the legendary Taurus Tavern in Venice, California - a band called Andy and the Rattlesnakes showed up. They played a tough, streetwise, worldly-wise music. Other musicians listened, and the Rattlesnakes had their influence on L.A.s music." - Michael Ventura Author of Letters at 3am and Night Time Losing Time

Last Summer to Dance

Andy and the Rattlesnakes

Compilation album of the studio and live tracks recorded by the band in 1980 and 1981.

In the late 70s and early 80s, Andy and the Rattlesnakes captivated L.A. music fans with their exciting live performances. Their audiences quickly understood that a Snakes performance was not going to be just another rock-n-roll evening. Whether politically charged, strikingly imaginative or sweetly romantic, their songs covered an expansive musical and lyrical territory. The band's sound combined twisted punk overtones, reggae dubs, ska skanks, and spontaneous jazz and blues improvisations, into a mixture held together by the heart and soul backbone of solid R&B.
