Judging from the photo gracing the front cover sleeve of Past Perfect Tense, one would understandably be inclined to believe the Raves are a Beatles tribute act. Not only does the Atlanta, Georgia band dress the part (we’re talking 1964-1965 here), but the physical resemblances to the lads from Liverpool are uncannily similar as well. Although the Raves do dwell deep in Beatles country, they write their own material which is so good and strong that it adds a few unique wrinkles to the fabric. A copycat band they are not, but comparisons to the Rutles are not far off the radar. In 1981 they unveiled their debut album, The Color Of Tears, and some of the cuts from the platter are featured on Past Perfect Tense, which further involves previously unreleased tracks from 1989, the date the band dismantled. But they recently reunited and are preparing to issue a brand new album this year.
