Nashville Pussy are heading down under

The band Lemmy dubbed “America’s last great rock ’n’ roll band”, Nashville Pussy, are heading down under in May next year.

Raised on a diet of Marshall stacks, Gibson guitars, Jack Daniels and weed, Nashville Pussy is the bastard offspring of foul-mouthed, demented, hillbilly, ice-cream man, Blaine Cartwright, and tractor driving, nude art school model and guitar prodigy, Ruyter Suys.

Born deep in the Baptist bible Belt of Kentucky, Cartwright used The Ramones and The New York Dolls to maintain sanity – meanwhile in Vancouver, eight-year-old hippie kid Ruyter picked up her father’s guitar and started playing along with Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix.

“We got married on a dare after dropping acid – Nashville Pussy is our baby,” Suys said.

Nashville Pussy quickly gained a reputation for being like “AC/DC with a female Angus” due to Suys’ blues-meets-punk frenzied guitar solos and Cartwright’s “jailhouse nursery rhyme” lyrics.

Their debut album, ‘Let Them Eat Pussy’, was recorded and mixed in five days for $3,000 and was picked up by Mercury Records for a million-dollar contract during a signing freeze.

Their track Fried Chicken And Coffee was soon nominated for a Grammy for Best Metal Performance.

Six studio albums later, the band has now played in front of hundreds of thousands of fans in nearly forty countries, sharing stages with some of the biggest bands on the planet, including ZZ TOP, Marilyn Manson, Slayer, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Lynyrd Skynyrd and of course Motörhead, with whom they’ve played every rock outpost from Asia to Europe alongside, time and time again.

“If there’s been a better band than Nashville Pussy to open for Motörhead, I’ve never heard them,” Lemmy said.
