Nashville Pussy announce April UK shows

Straddling the line between dumb hillbilly stoners and genius sleaze-rock satirists, Nashville Pussy are an acquired taste, but a taste worth acquiring for anyone who ever wondered what a bar-room brawl between Motorhead, Kid Rock and Steel Panther might sound like. Fronted by husband-and-wife duo Blaine Cartwright and Ruyter Suys, the Atlanta-based hairy quartet specialize in roaring biker-punk party anthems about moonshine, weed and trailer-trash sex…There is plenty of self-satirising wit on this decade spanning retrospective too, in song titles such as ‘The South Is Too Fat To Rise Again’and lyrics like the killer opening to ‘Before The Drugs Wear Off’; “You’re meaner than shit, hotter than hell, ten months pregnant but you can’t even tell.” Blammo! It also makes perfect sense that Lemmy privides guest vocals on ‘Lazy Jesus’, an hilarious attack on the son of God for being a pious layabout snob: ‘You don’t do nothing except tell everybody they are wrong.’ Correct. Nashville Pussy play with swagger and ugly-sex attitude, reminding us that rock’n’roll was spawned from the illicit, profane, salacious, late-night saloon-bar hedonism of the Deep South. On faster numbers their guitars even out-riff AC/DC. 8/10” (Stephen Dalton, Classic Rock Summer 2015, reviewing ‘Ten Years Of Pussy’.)

High octane dirty Southern US rock ’n’ rollers Nashville Pussy are set to tour Europe and the UK in celebration of the 15th anniversary of their ‘High As Hell Album’. Expect to hear classic sleazy, greasy rockers such as ‘She’s Got The Drugs’ and ‘Struttin’ Cock’, let alone songs from last year’s acclaimed ‘Ten Years of Pussy’ double CD, containing the very best tracks from their three SPV releases – 2005’s ‘Get Some’, 2009’s ‘From Hell To Texas’ and 2014’s ‘Up The Dosage’. After kicking off in France in March and blazing a trail through Italy, Spain, Germany, Belgium and Holland, Nashville Pussy will hit the UK to play the following gigs:-

6th April - London - The Underworld

7th April - Evesham - The Iron Road

8th April - Hastings - The Brass Monkey

Nashville Pussy were formed in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1997. Their unique blend of southern metal, boogie rock and psychobilly and songs about sex, drugs, drinking, fighting and rock ‘ n’ roll soon won a huge cult following in America and Europe. “We were tired of seeing and hearing bands that were just going through rock’s 101 motions, all slick but with no real soul. So we decided to play the kind of music that we would like to hear,” comments  Ruyter Suys on the birth of the band. Their debut album, ‘Let Them Eat Pussy’, released in 1998, spawned a 1999 ‘Best Metal Performance’ Grammy for the single ‘Fried Chicken and Coffee’. Ever since, Nashville Pussy, one of the hardest working bands on the planet, have played over 1,000 gigs in 40 different countries, touring with the likes of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Motorhead, Reverend Horton Heat, Slayer, and ZZ Top, as well as headlining numerous tours in their own right.
