      Nashville Pussy

      with Don Jamieson, Drunkula
      Lemmy personally blessed Nashville Pussy calling them Americas last great Rock and Rollband....and Lemmy should know. Over the past couple of decades, Nashville Pussy preached its sleazygospel alongside Motrhead in every rock outpost from Asia to Europe and back again.Raised on a diet of Marshall stacks, Gibson Guitars, Jack Daniels and weed, Nashville Pussy isthe bastard offspring of foul mouthed demented hillbilly ice-cream man Blaine Cartwright andtractor driving, nude art school model guitar prodigy Ruyter Suys. Born deep in the Baptist BibleBelt of Kentucky Blaine Cartwright used the Ramones and The New York Dolls to maintainsanity meanwhile in Vancouver Canada, 8 year old hippie kid Ruyter Suys picked up her fathersguitar playing along with Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix.We got married on a dare after dropping acid, Nashville Pussy is our baby, says Suys.Blaine and Ruyter left their Nashville home when their house burned to the ground. We wereforced to tour incessantly or face the fact that we were homeless Eventually choosing Atlanta ashome, Because the bars stayed open later. Nashville Pussy quickly gained a reputation for beinglike AC/DC with a female Angus in Ruyters blues meets punk frenzied guitar solos and Blaineshilarious jailhouse nursery rhyme lyrics. Rowdy and unpretentious; Nashville Pussy got votedbest local band in opposite ends of the country their first year of touring.Their debut album Let Them Eat Pussy was recorded and mixed in 5 days for $3,000, picked upby Mercury records for a million dollar contract during a signing freeze and Grammy nominated forFried Chicken And Coffee for Best Metal Performance.The band has also found fans with the Mob; The Sopranos featured Drive in one episode andtheir songs have also been in Entourage, SuperTroopers, Cartoon Network, Jackass The Game.They have performed at Wacken Open Air, HELLFEST, Dynamo Festival, Roskilde, Leeds andRedding, multiple appearances on Canal Plus Television and even done voices and cameos inmovies.After the whiskey bottles emptied, Nashville Pussy rocked. Six studio albums later, the band hasnow played in front of hundreds of thousands of fans in nearly forty countries, sharing stages withsome of the biggest bands on the planet, including ZZTOP, Marilyn Manson, SLAYER, IronMaiden, Black Sabbath and LYNYRD SKYNYRD. Weve played everywhere from little shit kickjoints in bum fuck towns to topping the bill at 20,000 seater festivals in Sweden, adds Suys. Itdoesnt matter to us how many people are in front of us. We always kick ass and rock like its thelast show on earth.BIOGRAPHY 2018Where do Nashville Pussy find inspiration for their outrageous lyrics? We farm our ownadventures for fuel. Tragedy becomes comedy as soon as Blaine writes about it, says Suys. Ourold bassist got carried out of New Yorks exclusive Spy Bar kicking and screaming, so we justwrote a song about it, You Give Drugs A Bad Name. Most of our songs start with a big dose oftruth.This badass lifestyle takes its toll. But instead of resorting to Keith Richards infamous bloodtransfusions to rejuvenate themselvesNashville Pussy found themselves new blood. Spicy Colombian/Californian Bonnie Bon Buitragobegan as a teenage fan of the band sneaking into shows, determined to make the leap fromaudience member to member of the band by mastering her craft on Bass.Atlanta native and ex-landscaper Ben Thomas on drums has quickly become known for hisshowmanship, precision and all around sensuality behind the kit. Everyone is always looking forthe next John Bonham, we found him mowing our lawn!Many now believe the band has assembled the classic Nashville Pussy lineup. This rhythmsection is the foundation on which Blaine and Ruyter - who still regularly tops polls of worlds bestfemale guitarist - build their ferocious growling sound. We are Rock n Rolls dirty little secret,blissfully outliving musical trends we never knew existed, says Suys. More than ever, everyoneneeds to escape to a place where they can pretend they dont give a shit, let their hair down andget loud, sweaty and dirty. Nashville Pussy provides that unpretentious refuge. Everyone iswelcome just dont dress up cause its gonna get messy.If theres been a better band than Nashville Pussy to open for Motrhead, Ive never heard them Lemmy
