Alternative Press have just published “A love letter to the World’s Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Band” which features Pussy Galore as one of the bands that prove Rolling Stones’ influence on punk was enormous.
Pussy Galore excerpt:
“Led by a pre-Blues Explosion Jon Spencer, Pussy Galore arrived on NYC’s Lower East Side noise scene from Washington, D.C. in the mid-‘80s. They had a nastier attitude than anyone and created a bigger din, equal parts Einsturzende Neubauten industrial fuckery and the ultra-garage obscurities collected for the Back From The Grave compilation series. The resultant clang scanned far rootsier than other L.E.S. noiseniks of the day. And if anyone questions from where a large part of their seedy funk descended? Consider that they released a cassette-only, full-length cover of Exile, which was essentially Pussy Galore playing atop the original album spinning on vinyl in the same room.” – Tim Steal / AltPress.com (November 9, 2021)
