RAMSHACKLE GLORY – ONE LAST BIG JOB

a4285697527_10

Ok before I start, I want to tell you guys that we are very sorry for not posting since Halloween. We have been busy being lazy bastards. BUT WORRY NOT! 2017 will be THE YEAR OF INDIE IS DEAD. Ok back to the album.

One Last Big Job is Ramshackle Glory’s final album, after six years of being a band. This is how Pat the Bunny himself put it:

RAMSHACKLE GLORY is a retired anarchist punk band that was based out of Tucson, AZ. This is our last release. Our band lasted from 2010-2016. We put out three full length albums, one split album with the folk punk band Ghost Mice, and toured every year. We donated money to a large number of anarchist and radical political projects, and distributed a lot of free political literature on a variety of topics. We stood up for our values as much as we knew how to. I’m proud of everyone in our band for doing what we did together. This project was hard on all of us in different ways, but in the end we took care of each other as much as we know how to. That isn’t something to take for granted. I actually think it’s all we have. Thanks to everyone who helped us, tolerated our mistakes and our crankiness, and listened to our music. You have funny taste. So do I.

Love,
Patrick Schneeweis (June 1, 2016)

This album might be Pat’s final album too, since he announced that he’s retiring from the music industry. What a shame. Although I have always been a Johnny Hobo kind of person, I might like this album. Let’s check it out.

This album is one of the best “goodbye” albums I’ve heard. f there was something that I really liked about this one, it’s the instruments. The instruments sounded really good. It might have been one of the strongest “sides” on this album. Then the lyrics were good in some parts too, but they felt uninspired in other bits.

My biggest problem with the album is that the vocals felt kind of weak in some songs, but it isn’t exactly a HUGE problem. I understand that Pat’s voice has worsened thanks to his unique vocal style (which I love).

This album still is an enjoyable little thing, which I personally recommend, but I wouldn’t listen to it every single day for the rest of my life.

8/10
