The former front man of Johnny Hobo & the Freight Trains and Wingnut Dishwasher's Union spent about a year in the desert & emerged with a new hope & a bunch of new friends who were holding instruments like a banjo, a violin, a saw & an accordion (to mention a few.) Ramshackle Glory is a combination of all these things more.
Their first full length offers a much fuller sound than any of the past bands mentioned above. The band is folksier in general with punk thrown in (& even some occasional beat boxing in the back round.) Lyrically it is a story about overcoming addiction, figuring out radical political & personal beliefs, trying to stay sane during it all & the friends that are there along the way (getting hurt & helping out.)
A must for anyone who has followed Pat's music over the years but also a good place to start if his work is new to you.

THis CD is crazy good. I've ordered it for a bunch of my friends and they all feel the same way. This is just as good if not better than Johnny Hobo/Wingnut.
