Nashville Pussy : Ten Years of Pussy

Nashville Pussy Ten Years of CackBlabbathSex, Drugs and Rock’n’Roll all the way from Atlanta, Georgia. It may be a bit of an overused cliché but what the hell would you come up with to describe these sleaze ridden rockers? They are literally oozing rock’n’roll swagger and well… God knows what else they’re oozing up there on stage.

Here we have a collection of songs plucked from the last ten years to showcase the best of the ‘Pussy. If that’s not enough you get a bonus live E.P. of six songs recorded in one of CB’s favourite gig cities: Nottingham.

So this is a pretty substantial package to get your ears around and if you’re not familiar with this lot; it’s a great place to start.

Nashville Pussy have successfully welded the sleaze of the likes of Hardcore Superstar and Backyard Babies with the more all-American hard rock attitude of their mates The Supersuckers and some straight-up GNR strutting. Throw in a bit of Glam here and there, a smattering of Country twang and a whole load of party attitude and you have yourself the down and dirty experience that is Nashville Pussy.

You know the score… huge roar-along choruses, kick-ass riffs and plenty of whiskey-slamming hellraising. Blaine is the master of ceremonies; the perfect frontman for a band like this and he, like the rest of his band, can put the Nashville Pussy stamp on a broad range of rock approaches.

‘Come on Come on’ is a pretty straight forward rock anthem to kick things off and if that was your first taster of the band then you’d think it was all a bit tame. Then comes ‘Rub it to Death’ complete with screeching guitars and that repetitive chorus line. Things are spicing up a little….

Classic rock overtones on ‘I’m So High’ and full-on assault of ‘Going Down Swinging’ keep the momentum going, laid back numbers like ‘Until The Drugs Wear Off’ switch it around to keep you on your toes and the towering guitars on ‘Hate and Whiskey’ are as uplifting as you can get.

Let’s face it though. We want something you wouldn’t play in front of your mother. How about the completely over the top pomp of ‘Pussy Time’ or scare your Gran off too with ‘Lazy Jesus’ while you are at it.

On top of that you have the live E.P. which includes a gravelly beer soaked version of ‘Nutbush City Limits’ as a highlight and has a cramped sweaty club feeling to the whole disc.

‘Ten Years Of Pussy’ is an album you can literally kick back and party to. Everything is immediate and in your face. No chin stroking, no repeated listens to fully appreciate the meaning behind the songs it’s just unrestrained rock’n’roll to lose your mind to.
