Edgy, anthemic and raucous ... bow to the all-conquering power of Pussy!

A bar room bruiser of a Rock 'n' Roll band from Atlanta, Nashville Pussy are probably the closest thing that Uncle Sam has to our very own Motörhead. Taking their name from Ted Nugent's immortalised introduction to 'Wang Dang Sweet Poontang' on 1978's 'Double Live Gonzo' album, the band have been kicking up a shit storm in one form or another since the late 1990s – their debut 'Let Them Eat Pussy' first emerged in 1998 as I recall. Largely ignored by the mainstream media, the four-piece have nevertheless achieved something of a cult status on the underground scene, a growing legion of fans around the globe happy to wave the banner whenever they roll into town.

To celebrate their decade long partnership with Steamhammer/SPV, the band has just released the bumper compilation album 'Ten Years Of Pussy'. A two disc set with the first disc containing sixteen of the best tracks from the last decade and the second a blistering six tracker recorded at Nottingham's Rock City back in 2009. If you're new to the phenomenon that is NP, this is a great way to get up close and personal.

Singing songs about sex, drugs, Rock 'n' Roll, drinking and fighting, their overdriven, unapologetic sound could be described as a cross between Motörhead, AC/DC and Lynyrd Skynyrd – lean, mean and full of attitude. Lacking pretension, subtlety and (to a large degree) anything like finesse, they nevertheless whip up a veritable storm (especially live) and I defy anyone not to be transfixed by the force of nature that NP in full flow – check out their rambling run through of 'Nutbush City Limits' on the second disc and you'll get a real taste of the Pussy!

Personally speaking, I'd start with disc two as that really showcases NP at their most primal – sweat soaked, dirty and meaner than an alley cat in heat! 'Go Motherfucker Go', 'You're Goin' Down' and 'Struttin' Cock' all have the crowd eating out of the palm of their hand in a way that many more prominent bands would sell their girlfriends for! Crank it up and let it go... this is worth the admission price alone in my book.

As for the main event...well...where to start? As I said earlier, subtlety and finesse aren't words you'd ever associate with NP, but if you're looking for some good time, Rootsy Rock 'n' Roll delivered with barbed passion and angst, you won't find anything better. Kicking off with the rowdy 'Come On, Come On' from 2005's 'Get Some!' opus, Nashville Pussy hit you with the force of a runaway freight train. 'Going Down Swinging' is all Bon Scott attitude, whilst the hilarious 'Before The Drugs Wear Off' is akin to Johnny Cash fronting Steel Panther. Then there's the groove laden 'Til' The Meat Falls Off The Bone', the Blues-tinged shuffle of 'Lazy Jesus' (which features Lemmy Kilmister), the thumping 'The South's Too Fat To Rise Again'... oh I really could go on, but by now you must have got the picture!

Edgy, anthemic and raucous ... bow to the all-conquering power of Pussy!
