Pussycat and the Dirty Johnsons third LP “Aint No Pussy”

Pussycat and the Dirty Johnsons eagerly-awaited third LP “Aint No Pussy” has been upon us for a few months with 11 blistering tracks of freshly squeezed, unadulterated, punk rock’n’roll. Again artfully captured by Alex McGowan at Space Eko East, this long player doesn’t compromise in its aural assault.

After Dirty Water fell headfirst last year, and released their ‘Dirty Rock N Roll’ album, we are now also re-releasing 2013’s ‘Exercise Your Demons’. With the high impact raw energy of their live shows captured in the studio by producer McGowan, their debut studio LP “Exercise Your Demons” received many great reviews. The power-packed follow up “Dirty Rock’n’Roll” received the same accolades with the band (now a trio) bringing in the double bass skills of Phil Bloomberg (of the Polecats) to guest on a couple of tracks.

Pussycat and the Dirty Johnsons have played hundreds of headline shows across the UK and Europe as well as supporting the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Thee Oh Sees, The Fuzztones, The Polecats, The Rezillos, Bow Wow Wow, Mad Sin, The Damned and many more big name bands.

The formidable Pussycat is renowned for prowling the audience whilst the adrenaline-fueled Dirty Johnson boys pound out infectious, dirty rock’n’roll. Like all cats they are hard to pin down and have been described as one of the most incendiary live bands in the UK.

The Dirty Water Club started in October 1996 in the Tufnell Park neighbourhood of north London, at a venue called The Boston. The club’s name is derived from The Standells’ 1966 hit ‘Dirty Water’ which glorifies the US city of Boston, Massachusetts.

Past performers have included The White Stripes (voted by Q Magazine as one of the top 10 gigs of all time, Mojo one of the top 30 and Kerrang one of the top 100!), The Gories, Country Teasers, Black Lips, NOBUNNY, Kid Congo Powers, The Fleshtones, Billy Childish, Radio Birdman, The Dirtbombs, Thee Michelle Gun Elephant, The 5.6.7.8’s, The Horrors and The Brian Jonestown Massacre to name just a few. The club has also seen some original ’60s performers, such as The Monks, ? and the Mysterians, Kim Fowley, Sky Saxon, GONN, Michael Davis of the MC5 and more grace its stage.

Their in-house record label, Dirty Water Records, is one of the leading garage/beat/(real) R&B labels in the world.
