Wingnut Dishwashers Union


Wingnut Dishwashers Union was a folk-punk project started by Pat The Bunny in 2007 and disbanded in 2009. Pat The Bunny is a Brattleboro, Vermont-based (later on Tucson, Arizona) musician who known for his numerous projects, most notably Johnny Hobo & The Freight Trains, Ramshackle Glory, some solo stuff, and of course, Wingnut Dishwashers Union, among other projects he's been involved in but not the central member of.

This band in particular was formed just after his first major (and arguably most well-known) project Johnny Hobo & The Freight Trains. Though his first project featured numerous collaborators, Wingnut Dishwashers Union was a mostly solo effort, with occasional collaborations. Thus, most songs are just Pat's voice and acoustic guitar, or in other words, shouted words and slammed strings. His songs pretty much all revolve around being a burned out, strung out anarchist, but somehow still manage to be personable and relatable. Simply put, this is one of Pat's best projects, and the one that introduced me to him. I've meaning to upload some of his stuff for years at this point, so I'll make an effort to add more soon. Enjoy.
