Pat Todd and the Rankoutsiders
Holdin’ Onto Trouble’s Hand
Pat Todd is a man that just won’t quit! Barely over a year ago, the ex-Lazy Cowgirls’ front man assembled a new rock and roll troupe and put out a 28-song double-CD (The Outskirts of Your Heart, Rankoutsider Records) of his trademark mix of rock and roll/punk/country.
In an interview at the time he claimed to have 30 more songs written and ready to go! Now here he comes again with a 20-song release (and threatens to have 60 or so more songs ready!), a full-time label home to a dozen or so bands and plans to tour.
Those who’ve witnessed the Lazy Cowgirls live can attest that musicians half Todd’s age don’t have half his explosive power. I have yet to see the Rankoutsiders live but from what I gather he’s certainly not changed. This album is more of what you’ve come to know and love; I like it better than Outskirts…but that’s not to put down that album.
My favorite song might be “When the World and You Collide”. Now that I don’t live far from Pat Todd’s hometown of Vincennes, IN I’m hoping to actually get to see the Rankoutsiders on tour.
