Biography

Hard rock, psychobilly, southern rock or cowpunk? Nashville Pussy are notoriously difficult to label but who cares? The music they dish up is high octane stuff indeed. Incidentally, that goes for the music as well as the lyrics. The band’s detractors can get pretty vocal about their disapproval of the often outspoken lyrics on sex, drugs, booze, brawling and good ole rock ‘n’ roll but the fans simply can’t get enough. Nashville Pussy is the brainchild of the husband & wife combo Blaine Cartwright (vocals/guitar) and Ruyter Suys (guitar). The line-up is completed by the brilliant and daft Bonnie Buitrago on bass and Ben Thomas on drums. In 1998 they won a Grammy nomination for ‘Fried Chicken and Coffee’ off their full-length debut ‘Let Them Eat Pussy’. Though they’ve never hit the big time – their unwillingness to compromise or surrender to commercial tastes may have something to do with that - they do have a fiercely loyal cult following on every continent. Their latest outing ‘Pleased to Eat You’ (2018) confirms their reputation of sounding like AC/DC with a female Angus. Nashville Pussy are a time machine that transports the listener to those 70s days when headbanging in public was likely to earn you a one-way ticket to the looney bin. (#GMM19)
