What Was Music? 1992-1995
While this band does not pertain to metal in any way, shape or form, it is,
or rather was (they broke up), quite a peculiar creature. I was lucky
enough to see them play live several years ago for about 15 minutes or so in
a small record store, and it was a blast let me tell you. When Pussy started
doing their thing, nobody could even understand what the hell was going on.
I myself just stood there like a buffoon trying to remove my jaw from the
floor. The guitars were all dissonance and noise, the drums - rampant
poundings, the vocalist (also a drummer) was wailing and screaming her
insides out all over the place.
This stuff is a total deconstruction of whatever rock music is supposed to
be, and a real noise treat. Pussy's full-length "Ride A Dove" captures them
at their most punishing, while this album, combining the early stuff from
their out-of-print 7- inch singles and EP's, is, so to say, more down to
earth, resembling a Captain Beefheart-incited trio of inveterate junkies
trying to play at their first-ever jam session. This is as messy and
fucked-up as rock music gets.
