“First to take the stage at last night’s fourth of Yo La Tengo’s eight Hanukkah shows at Maxwell’s, reunited garage rock band Pussy Galore wasted no time testing the crowd’s enthusiasm for raging 80s punk, as Jon Spencer, Julie Cafritz, Kurt Wolf and Bob Bert opened their relentless forty minute fifteen song set with the antagonistic ‘You Look Like a Jew.’

A glammed up Spencer spit and sweated his way through, his upper lip curled and hanging on the microphone through every track, as Cafritz, dolled up like a hardened 50s bombshell, backed him up with a constant chorus of obscenity until, after closing the show with ‘Evil Eye’ and ending with Spencer’s final words of “so f*** you,” Cafritz smiled and wished the crowd a “happy Hanukkah and merry Christmas.”

Whether or not the attitude was all an act, there was one genuine moment of authentic attitude when an overeager fan stormed the stage to snatch Spencer’s set list, returning to the crowd only to have Spencer snatch it back. However, Spencer then stuck it in his yellow cotton tote and had a genuine smile on his face as he pulled up tape on his hands and knees and packed up his guitar while less greedy fans approached the stage just to say hello and thank him for the show.” – nj.com

The picture of the Pussy Galore drumkit was orignally posted by Larry Hardy of In The Red Records on 31st October 2011 and later by Bob Bert with the following:

“Gonna take her out for a Spin (out) tonight, it’s been 23 years but yesterday she was purring like a Pussy, Wish you could all come along for the ride.”
