Description

Nashville Pussy: Blaine Cartwright (vocals, guitar); Ruyter Suys (guitar); Corey Parks (bass); Jeremy Thompson (drums).

Recorded at Studio Litho, Seattle, Washington.

Kiss, Motorhead, and Ted Nugent are just a few of the influences that come to mind when a revving motorcycle segues into a driving AC/DC-influenced guitar riff and Nashville Pussy does what it does best; sleazy, high-octane Southern hard rock with attitude to spare. HIGH AS HELL, its second album, delivers the goods, as illustrated by "She's Got the Drugs," with its munching-on-glass vocals and Sid and Nancy-style love story.

The title track boasts a foot-stomping, Texas blues-rock groove, while "Go to Hell" puts a new twist on country music heartbreak in a grisly depiction of a man catching his wife in an adulterous affair. "You Ain't Right" finds the song's hero ending a bitter relationship, and Nashville Pussy has fun with handclaps, recalling early Aerosmith, with "Rock and Roll Outlaw." The self-explanatory "Blowjob From a Rattlesnake" tells of a run-in with the law leading to an disagreeable prison stay, while the closest thing to a manifesto comes to life in "Drive," where bad deeds are rationalized as just "...different ideas of fun."

What the critics say...

Magnet (8-9/00, p.87) - "...12 generous helpings of white-trash bliss....somewhere in between AC/DC and a Southern-fried Motorhead....[It] is the sonic equivalent of a tornado in a trailer park..."
CMJ (5/22/00, p.3) - "...Opens up a nasty can of punk-metal whup-ass....the band's Motorhead-reverant debut [is] looser, more Southern-fried twin-guitar squeal....It's about time someone brought rock back to where it started, and [they] know it's all below the belt."
