Our Record of the Day is from Pat Todd & The Rankoutsiders also from our friends at Hound Gawd Records. Record Labels when run by a Team that is laser focused are a powerful thing. I said on twitter just a few days ago that I would be focusing more on my favorite labels . What goes in to making a label one that I include on a short list as one of the best. First and foremost there has to be a vision , think Eric at Goner, Bazooka Joe at Slovenly, Gregg at Get Hip , Lou from Rum Bar , Tom at Howlin Banana,Ian at Damaged Goods, Scott at Hidden Volume and Courtney at Girlsville they all have one thing in common, they’re very picky. They know what they are looking for and when they find it they have this uncanny ability to get that person or band on their label . I call that integrity of vision and that also goes for Oliver Hausmann of Hound Gawd Records. Look at that roster, Twin Guns, The Fuzztones and a band that all of us at 50thirdand3rd agree is the shit – Ghost Wolves. Oliver knows what works with him and that is true of all of my friends who run labels. These are folks who have impeccable taste in music. They know that I agree with them close to 100% of the time that’s why we’re friends I want to help share their visions with all of you , find me someone more committed to great music then this group and I’m all ears. I’ve covered Twin Guns a few times, I dig the shit out of them., I think at least 3 of us have covered Ghost Wolves . Hound Gawd Records is a label that you will be hearing a lot more about in the coming months here at 50Thirdand3rd.
