Pussy Garole - Pussy Gold 5000 e.p ( Buy Our 1987 )





Deconstructionist trash-rock act Pussy Galore is noteworthy if for no other reason than the bands that it would eventually spawn--Boss Hog, Free Kitten, the Royal Trux, and the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, among others. Formed by the latter act's titular corpse-of-Elvis frontman in the early 1980s, Pussy Galore were about as offensive, aggressive, and inaccessible as a band that professed a love of the Rolling Stones could get. Nonetheless, Spencer and company's clanging no-fi sound and its slaying of one rock-&-roll sacred cow after another represented a fearless interpretation of punk, one that influenced many a band to follow in its twisted wake. In September '86, Pussy Galore recorded tracks for "Pussy Gold 5000", In January '87, "Pussy Gold 5000" was released, the single pressing of 3,000 sold out in one month.
Arguably one of the most inept bands of all times, Pussy Galore played blaspheme, obscene, irriverent, barbaric and often out-of-tune punk-blues. The hoarse and demented vocals of John Spencer, the ridicule guitar strumming of Julia Cafritz and Neil Hagerty framed the sub-amateurish sound of the EP Groovy Hate Fuck (1986). They moved to New York, where they added ex-Sonic Youth drummer Bob Bert and keyboardist Cristina Martinez, and they tripled the absurdity of their garage-sound. Thus, their first full-length, Right Now (1987), sounded like Captain Beefheart meeting the Cramps and Einsturzende Neubauten in a studio with defective microphones. Spencer disassembled and "de-sematicized" rock'n'roll and then built a new syntax based on the genre's illicit sounds, i.e. on its most subversive codes. And carried out this semiotic operation while posing as a satanic pervert. Dial M For Motherfucker (1989) was even more meaningless and pointless, but that was precisely the point. Pussy Galore begot an impressive cast of alternative groups: Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Royal Trux, Bewitched, Boss Hog, etc. Never was an irrelevant entity made so relevant by its irrelevance.
