Harry Pussy - Harry Pussy

£18.99

Harry Pussy emerged out of the Florida swamps in 1993.åÊFormed by Adris Hoyos and Bill Orcutt, the duo becameåÊlegendary for their volatile live shows, which often devolvedåÊinto violent clashes with audience members. ObliteratingåÊthe lines between hardcore, noise and free jazz,åÊthe unclassifiable Harry Pussy were at once all of theseåÊthings and none of them.åÊOriginally released on Siltbreeze, their self-titled debutåÊalbum reveals an antagonistic and visceral approach toåÊmusic: Hoyos‰۪ self-taught, wild-style drums and shroudedåÊscreams tangling with Orcutt‰۪s high-tension blues guitar.åÊAs David Keenan writes in the liner notes, ‰ÛÏHarry PussyåÊplayed at such a heightened speed-of-thought climactic future-åÊprimitive peak that they outstripped technique so completelyåÊthat people thought they couldn‰۪t actually play atåÊall.‰۝

From the opening blasts of ‰ÛÏYouth Problem‰۝ to the spasmodic,åÊelectro-convulsive take on Kraftwerk‰۪s ‰ÛÏShowroomåÊDummies,‰۝ Harry Pussy is an absurd and devastatingåÊstatement. Twenty-plus years later, rock ‰۪n‰۪ roll‰۪s collectiveåÊears are still ringing. This long out-of-print vinyl releaseåÊis recommended for fans of The Dead C, Royal TruxåÊand Mars.
