SOFT VERGES, HARD URGES!
A new year and despite the odds, new blood to brag about on this cranky old school punk
site. Its great shining a spotlight on the o
riginal punk classics (which this site is renowned
for), but once in a while you come across a band of new punk rock 'n' rollers who can
rock,
perform, excite and make you realise why punk still has the capability to spit out some
refreshing new sounds and energy after all this time.
Pussycat and the Dirty Johnson's
are that act.
For anyone who ain't heard 'em or seen 'em on their live tours or on record, you should check out
their brilliant video 'The Trouble With The Devil' you'll be enthralled
, hypnotised and demanding to
hear more. They waved bye bye to 2017 with the exceptional release of their 3rd album 'Aint No
Pussy' which has been blasting out in the Wolfs lair all winter long. Can't get enough of it. I admit I'm
late coming to the pussy party, they've been around apparently for quite a few years now, but better
late than never.  
They're unconventional,
they're dirty, totally
uncouth and they ain't
the norm which
I like a
lot.
They remind me of
when bands were
unique in sound and
look before everything
became uniform.
These
wacko's from
Basingstoke bring us a
rabid energy we ain't
seen for quite a while
and they have a little
dynamo of a singer
who can (shock horror)
actually sing! They
possess a raw sound of
guitar and drums
by the
rancid pair of Dirty Jake on guitar and Filthy Antz on drums
that distill power chord trashy rock 'n' roll
with phenomenal energy,
and if the Cramps didn't need a bass, neither do these cats. Vocally the
delivery is
bang on and gives all the screamy lame shouters out there masquerading as punk a real
lesson on how you can get your angst across but in a so much more memorable and interesting way.
Don't get
me wrong Pussycat can scream as good as the next, but she can also holler, woooagh and
yelp with rather excellent frequency. She looks like S
oo Catwoman from the 'Swindle' but sounds like
a real street
rockin' version of Toyah, especially with that rather attractive lisp. The talentless
screamers who make punk sooooo boring and one dimensional these days could learn a
real lesson
or two from Miss Pussycat
on how to deliver the fun with alley cat suss in a far more dangerous and
extreme way. We needed someone new who could capture the spirit of rebellion but give us songs
we could actually sing along to
, (remember that old ritual once upon a time when we sung along to
the tunes
coz we loved 'em?). 'Ain't No Pussy' has all these elements and more, amidst its tiger
skinned
leather veneer. 2018 we hope will bring us more acts, more feral punk that excites and more
pussy
. Can't wait to hear what they come up with next, so watch this space as ill be buying a copy
and most likely drool about it till you get pissed off about it
and buy yer own!

photogenic 60's era cat mask. Captured by the
talented Neil Anderson.


This Months Youtube
Is the Pussycat And The Dirty Johnsons iconic
'Trouble With The Devil' promo from 2011. I
watched it once and was immediately captured so
had to watch it again. Within minutes I ordered
the album and the rest is history. I'm sure you''ll
hear more from this mob very soon!
