Just typing their name is probably enough to get this site flagged for inappropriate or NSFW content, but I don’t particularly care. It’s obvious they don’t either, otherwise they wouldn’t have chosen something such a blatant and un-Googleable name as Perfect Pussy. They’re a punk band out of Syracuse, and they really started to make serious waves in 2013 thanks to a cassette-only EP I have lost all desire for feeling and live shows best described as “endlessly captivating.” Earlier today, Perfect Pussy announced that they will be releasing their debut album Say Yes to Love via Captured Tracks on March 18th. In other words, it promises to be a great post-St. Patrick’s Day hangover soundtrack (or the exact opposite). Along with the album announcement, the band also released the song “Driver,” which kicks off the record. It’s the sort of scorched earth type of track that makes your hair stand on end and drives mosh pits into a frenzy. I’m looking forward to seeing that and a whole bunch of other songs performed live next week when Perfect Pussy rolls through Chicago for an all ages show at Schubas. They’ve actually just kicked off a short tour for this month before they go for an extended jaunt in March with SXSW sandwiched in the middle. Check out their Tumblr or Bandcamp to hear some music and see all of their upcoming dates. If you want to join me at the Schubas show in Chicago on Jan 22nd though, and you absolutely should, tickets are an affordable $8 in advance. It promises to be quite the experience. If insanely lo-fi punk rock isn’t your thing, maybe Pick Your Poison can help you find something more attuned to your tastes.
