For those who aren’t big music fans (or scrupulously avoid out-of-field information with respect to genres in which they have no interest), a DVD spine reading, in bright, colorful letters, “Nashville Pussy” can create a bit of a stir. Kind of like the time one had to review another music-related disc entitled This Ain’t Your Mom’s Hardcore, Vol. 2.
Yep, it’s a concert disc, this DVD, and it features the band Nashville Pussy (named in reference to a line from a Ted Nugent’s Double Live Gonzo LP) rifling through 19 blistering songs in a 70-minute set from the Key Club in Hollywood. Husband-and-wife duo Blaine Cartwright and Ruyter Suys — the latter on guitar, the former handling vocals and additional guitar work — are joined by drummer Jeremy Thompson and new bassist Karen Cuda (replacing Corey Parks, sister of douchey ex-Dook hoopster Cherokee Parks), and together they all give the crowd exactly what they want, and then some.
The disc’s track listing consists of “Pussy Time,” “Going Down Swinging,” “High as Hell,” “Piece of Ass,” “Come On, Come On,” “Good Night for a Heart Attack,” “She’s Meaner Than My Momma,” “Go Motherfucker, Go,” “One Way Down,” “Hate and Whiskey,” “Hell Ain’t What It Used to Be,” “I’m the Man,” “Nutbush City Limits,” “The Bitch Just Kicked Me Out,” “She’s Got the Drugs,” “Shoot First, Run Like Hell,” “Lazy White Boy,” “Snake Eyes” and perhaps my favorite (based on title alone) “I’m Gonna Hitchhike Down to Cincinnati and Kick the Shit Outta Your Drunk Daddy.”
Housed in a regular Amray plastic case, this region-free disc comes with Dolby digital audio, and a bonus feature entitled “Pussy Home Movies.” So sit back, grab your bottle of whatever, and enjoy some good, old-fashioned sleaze-rock, if that’s your thing. If not, you might want to query Word Entertainment as to when that Amy Grant concert you liked so much is finally coming to DVD.
