EN Tales from the Rat House was a publication written for punks with a bent towards left wing politics and humor. The principle editors were Joe Britz, Larry Livermore, and David Hayes who were housemates in the so called “Rat House" in San Francisco. There was close affiliations with the band M.D.C. who once played on the Rat House roof to protest the motorcade of the Pope. Both Larry and David would work closely together on Maximum Rocknroll, the Gilman Street Project, and co-founded Lookout! Records.
