Perfect Pussy | Driver

January 16, 2014 at 5:43 am Leave a comment

Like Fuck Buttons, KMFDM, and Swollen Members before them, Perfect Pussy make quite the pronouncement with their band name alone. You name your band Perfect Pussy and, well, you’re pretty much grinding it in peoples’ faces. The name works a bit like a bouncer outside the club doors, ready to toss out all those that don’t belong. (Heck, the band can’t even give a straight forward logo, instead opting for a faded out, kind of debauched Warner Brothers double P.) But hey, in a way, that’s what you’ve got to expect with punk music — and to have it any other way just wouldn’t be punk. Granted, some purists will criticize the band having a female front and not necessarily being that Henry Rollins self-laceration, punching your fans kinda old-school punk. But it’s all about the music anyway, isn’t it? That’s where you must begin with the Syracuse band’s newest track, “Driver”, the first single from an upcoming 12-song debut LP entitled “Say Yes To Love” (out March 18 via Captured Tracks) — the follow up to their low-fi garage EP “I Have Lost All Desire For Feeling”. To listen to “Driver” is to be audibly accosted. It’s a thick loogie hocked in your path, daring you to say something — daring you not to be caught up in the hammering pace, the speedy and dirty guitar lines, the heavily-delivered female wailing of the lead vocals, and the scuzzed-up quality of it all. Halfway through the song you’ll hear guitar feedback going off like an air-raid siren, or electronic computer bleeps signalling your malfunctioning machine is about to hit the skids. Oh, and the song is one hot wonderful mess. — David D. Robbins Jr.
