Nashville Pussy Signs With Spitfire Records
Nominated for a Grammy for Best Metal Performance in 1999 for "Fried Chicken And Coffee" from their debut release "Let Them Eat Pussy," Spitfire Records proudly announces it has signed Nashville Pussy to an exclusive recording deal for North America.
Taking their name from the intro to the Double Live Gonzo version of Ted Nugent's "Wang Dang Sweet Poontang," the band's current line-up features: Kentucky born singer/guitarist Blaine Cartwright (formerly of 9 Pound Hammer) - lead guitarist and Vancouver BC transplant, Ruyter Suys (pronounced Rider Sighs) - drummer, Austin, Texas transplant Jeremy Thompson (a.k.a. "Remo") and new addition Karen Cuda on bass and supporting vocals hailing from Denver Colorado.
Since founding the band in 1996 - the husband and wife guitar team of Cartwright and Suys pursued their vision until it became reality.
"We were sick of seeing bands that sucked, so we decided to make the kind of band that we wanted to see," says Suys.
Straight off the blocks - Nashville Pussy was positively infamous for their ferocious, take-no-prisoners live shows - and immediately the most talked about band in the country. Nashville Pussy was soon the object of a heated bidding war between the majors and band's debut "Let Them Eat Pussy" earned them a Grammy nomination and slot on the Marilyn Manson tour.
Blaine Cartwright says about the new CD "It's like the return of Nashville Pussy. We put some of the sleaze and glam back in, only better. It's a good-time rock & roll record. We've always been in that situation where we had to keep everything going, touring, rehearsals, and writing. This time we've taken the time and reloaded. I want to get back to kicking ass in America , 'cause America needs it's ass kicked."
