Nashville Pussy
Get Some
Spitfire Records


For quite some time, I've merely regarded Nashville Pussy as little more than a novelty act that simply sold sex as Rock 'n' Roll. This is the first full album I've heard since Let Them Eat Pussy, and the act has been mostly dropped (within the album, I'm sure the stageshow is just as wild as ever) while the music, fortunately, has been polished. Here, it seems, they've finally started to live up to their promise of bringing back good-ol' Southern Rock. They still have that dirty, seedy, white trash element to their music, but unlike in year's past, that's not the only thing going for it. (Well that, and a seemingly endless supply of hotter-than-the-sun bass players, and a lead guitarist who looks like she would contemptuously flick her ashes on your chest while she was half-heartedly rocking your world.) I still wouldn't place them on the same pedestal as a Lynyrd Skynyrd, but I can now at least, in good conscience, mention them in the same sentence. Their music has achieved greater complexity in its structure and arrangement than in years past, and their constant touring has really tightened up their synchronicity. Some bands come shooting out of the starting gate with a stellar take-off and then stall soon afterward. Nashville Pussy is of a different variety in that they've gotten considerably better with age. If your life can't be completed without owning at least one of their albums, or you just like to own music with shocking names so people will think you're cool, then this is the one to get, because you will actually enjoy it.

If I've got one minor disappointment, it's that "Snowblind" is not a cover of the old Black Sabbath song. I was actually looking forward to hearing what they would do with (or maybe to) a song like that.
