NASHVILLE PUSSY


"From Hell to Texas" (SPV; 2009)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Sticking to the cowpunk attitude-meets-raw rock 'n' roll formula they've been championing for over a decade, Nashville Pussy returns with another batch of road ready boogie friendly whiskey-soaked hellbound tunes on the 12-track "From Hell to Texas."

Never ones to shy from subtleties, songs like the fiery "I'm So High" and "Drunk Driving Man" are self-explanatory accounts direct from the hard living rock lifestyle, while tracks like "Pray for the Devil" showcase Ruyter Suys' formidable Gibbons-meets-Perry guitar chops and "Why Why Why" and "Late Great USA" display this tandem's ability to pump out contagious hand-clapped and cowbell friendly hooks that get the whole crowd moving.

Bursting at the seams with songs about drugs, drinking, drinking, and drugs, Nashville Pussy continues its chug on its raucous rock route, huffed up on whatever they can get their paws on and not afraid to share a taste of its non-stop country-fried rock attack.

"Get Some" (Spitfire Records; 2005)

Reviewed by Snidermann

If you don't know anything Nashville Pussy, well, all you really need to know is the band's name, derived from the classic Ted Nugent album "Double Live Gonzo." 

As they do with their name, Nashville Pussy holds nothing back. The music here is all about getting laid, drinking, smoking weed and getting laid. And it's all done with hard rockin', good time rock'n'roll.

"Get Some" (nothing held back there, either), rocks hard and heavy and leaves the empties behind. Still, as kick ass as this CD is, it still doesn't compare to the band's live performance (read my review by clicking here). The band rocks hard live and has a great time in the process. 

The music on "Get Some" is barnstorming good fun and dangerously combustible. Just check out some of the song titles: "Lazy White Boy," "Hate and Whisky," "Hell Ain't What It used To Be" and a killer version of the Tina Turner classic "Nutbush City Limits." 

Nashville Pussy is good, raunchy fun.

"Say Something Nasty" (Artemis Records; 2002)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

Nashville Pussy is a band whose sound is easy to describe: Imagine AC/DC if they'd come from the South rather than from Down Under with "Wango Tango"-era Ted Nugent (and sometimes "Lace and Whiskey"-era Alice Cooper) on vocals. Not a hard sound to imagine and not a bad sound to listen to. It's all chunky guitars, Southern boogie flair, and raw lyrics that rave about rock'n'roll's favorite things: sex, drugs and violence. With song titles like "Keep on Fuckin'," "You Give Drugs a Bad Name" and (my personal favorite) "Gonna Hitchhike Down to Cincinnati and Kick the Shit Outta Your Drunk Daddy," you better know what to expect before that laser beam hits the CD in your player.

Virtually every track on "Say Something Nasty" does what it's supposed to: It's supposed to kick your rock'n'roll ass and maybe put a smile on your face at the same time. If I have to choose highlights, I'll take the aforementioned "Gonna Hitchhike...", "The Bitch Just Kicked Me Out," "Keep on Fuckin'," the balls-out rocker "Let's Get the Hell Outta Here" and the rough-edged cover of Rick Derringer's "Rock'n'Roll Hoochie Coo."

Those looking for deep, complicated art-like thinking in their rock'n'roll had better pass "Say Something Nasty" on by. Those looking for a rowdy, rollicking, raw, rock'n'roll experience need look no further.

Nashville Pussy: Blaine Cartwright - guitar/vocals; Ruyter Suys - lead guitar; Jeremy Thompson - drums; KatieLynn Campbell - bass guitar.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
