After many years of misery, addiction, and nihilism Johnny Hobo & The Freight Trains finally burned to the ground. Out of the ashes rose Wingnut Dishwasher’s Union. While Johnny Hobo songs made people want to shoot dope, WDU songs just might make you want to shoot a capitalist.
On this album WDU performs most of the songs as a full on, electric punk band (including members of Endless Mike & The Beagle Club). There are still many moments of raw acoustic feeling to be found, while the new electric sound enhances instead of replacing what is already there, by co-existing side by side with singer Pat The Bunny and his bloody guitar strumming.
Overall the lyrics offer hope and a desire for social change with Diy Anarchist politics woven into the entire album. Pat The Bunny uses words like “Anarchy” and “Freedom” and actually knows what he’s talking about. This is gutter rock at its finest!
