Pussycat and the Dirty Johnsons
Watch and listen:
Puss Johnson - Vocals, guitar
Dirty Jake - Guitar
Filfy Antz - Drums
The formidable Pussycat is renowned for prowling the audience whilst the adrenaline fuelled Dirty Johnson boys pound out their infectious blend of punk 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.
Their debut studio LP Exercise Your Demons received many great reviews and, with the high impact raw energy of one of their shows artfully captured by producer Alex McGowan, the eagerly awaited power-packed follow up Dirty Rock ‘n’ Roll graced them with even higher praise from fans and reviewers alike. Containing 11 blistering tracks the trio also bought in the double-bass skills of Phil Bloomberg (of The Polecats) to guest on a couple of numbers!
Pussycat and the Dirty Johnsons’ video Trouble With The Devil has received over 40,000 hits and the last three years has seen the band play hundreds of shows, including numerous UK tours and some great festival slots. They’ve played with the likes of The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Thee Oh Sees, The Fuzztones, Bad Sin, The Damned, 999, The Polecats, The Creepshow, Bow Wow Wow, The Meteors, The Vibrators, Resurex and The Rezillos, amongst many others.
Currently finishing new material for the eagerly awaited next album, 2016 will see them hitting the roads of the UK again for their Autumn Tour!
With Puss on vocals and guitar, Dirty Jake on guitar and Filfy Antz back on drums (after a two year stint as a T-Rex), this Basingstoke trio create an incredibly tight wall of sound!
Ain’t No Pussy!?! Well that’s for sure!
