Patsy's Rats - Rock N' Roll Friend
Patsy's Rats are from Portland, Oregon and are headed by Patsy Gelb (daughter of Giant Sand's Howe Gelb) and Christian Blunda (guitarist & vocalist of Mean Jeans). Also featured on their 2015 s/t 7 song ep are Aaron Levy (bass/vocals), Nat Browner (drums) and Kyle Raquipiso (drums).
Mixing up catchy powerpop with driving indie tinged rock n roll, their debut single, Rock n Roll Friend is an infectious throwback to a time when the likes of The Go-Go's, The Runaways and The Bangles used to rule the airwaves.
You can check out their music here : https://patsysrats.bandcamp.com/ but if vinyl is your preference a 7" is newly available on La-Ti-Da Records http://latidarecords.bigcartel.com/product/patsy-s-rats-rock-n-roll-friend-ltdr027.
Ideal for listening to in the car on a hot summer's day (volume up, window down), this is Rock N' Roll Friend......
