Spun: Nashville Pussy

It’s been almost 10 years since Nashville Pussy formed, but their music remains the same–ballsy, unabashed rock and roll sure to remind you what being white trash is all about. With songs like “Pussy Time,” “Going Down Swinging,” “Lazy White Boy,” and “Raisin’ Hell Again,” Get Some packs more than its fair share of white trash anthems. Trailer park rockers will no doubt identify with the album’s themes, while listeners humoured by tales of America’s trashy underclass will find something to laugh at.

Get Some takes it back to the old Nashville Pussy days, where ripping solos and blue collar attitude prevail. Nashville Pussy addresses white-trash stereotypes with authenticity and wit on tracks like “Atlanta’s Still Burning,” where Cartwright shouts, “Spent all my money on cheap sensations/feel like the king of the barbeque nation.”

Musically, Get Some fails to delve into new territory, doling out yet another 13 songs of predictable chord progressions and straight ahead groves. Nashville Pussy’s most redeeming quality is their ability to stay true to themselves and avoid any pretensions of being anything but the hard-rocking, tell-it-like-it-is band of trailer park heroes they are.
