Vive le Rock: Pussycat and the Dirty Johnsons "Dirty Rock 'n' Roll"

Pussycat And The Dirty Johnsons’ debut seemed to come from no-where in an explosive burst of punk’n’roll. So, how to follow such an impressive start? By taking the elements that made ‘Exercise Your Demons’ a winner and improving on them, of course. They’ve also slimmed down to a trio by losing their bassist, although they have, however, enlisted Phil Polecat to play double bass on a couple of numbers. The twisted humour’s still abundant, albeit a tad darker. ‘Burying The Bodies’, ‘Hell Bent’ and ‘Souvenir’ cast Puss in the role of deranged serial killer and should appeal to the psychobilly element of their fan base. The coup de grace though is ‘Hideous’, a witty savaging of those orange-skinned harpies that plague UK cities every weekend night.
