Nashville Pussy @ MOHO Live, Manchester by Frank Ralph

10th August 2010 Review & Photography by Frank Ralph

Can I get a HELL YEAH?!!So, you like rock music, huh? Then you’ll have been looking forward to this gig as much as I was, yeah? Oh, you weren’t there… well where the hell were ya then? You missed a belter.

You see… Nashville Pussy are ROCK.

NASHVILLE-186

Pure rock n’ roll fury with a sexy southern drawl.
In fact, you’ll probably find their picture in the dictionary just below Motorhead’s.

NASHVILLE-167

They really should be playing a bigger venue, in my opinion, but as it goes, MOHO – the closest thing to a spit n’ sawdust venue that Manchester has to offer – suits them to a tee, and the Pussy Wagon is parked outside – so let’s rock!

It would be rude not to!

NASHVILLE-258

Taking the stage to Cheech Marin’s ‘Titty Twister’ introduction (you know the one) they dive headlong into a mighty riff and guitarist Ruyter attacks every note with venom.

NASHVILLE-281

It really is everything a rock show should be – great tunes played loudly, pure aggression mixed with sex appeal, in a hot and sweaty venue. Blaine screams his way through the set with power and attitude, whilst Karen Coda just looks plain cool on bass.

NASHVILLE-334

Showcasing tracks from their catalogue, ‘Drunk Driving Man’ from latest album ‘From Hell to Texas’ and a fantastic version of ‘Nutbush City Limits’ from 2005’s ‘Get Some’ are my personal highlights. Add to this an old classic in ‘Go Motherf@*ker Go’, from the album that got me into the band in the first place: ‘Let Them Eat Pussy’ and I’m a happy bunny.
NASHVILLE-437

I haven’t seen as good a balls-out gig, as chock full of brilliant slabs of rock n’ roll since the last time I saw Motorhead – and I’m ashamed that I’d missed Nashville Pussy the last couple of times they’ve toured.

I can guarantee you I won’t be missing them again.
