Pussy Galore the secret influence on Primal Scream,
MBV and many other British bands crammed in to Pussy Galores first English gig.

dial m for motherfucker is a great lp

charltonlido (gareth), Monday, 28 March 2005 13:30 (fifteen years ago) link

I thought Royal Trux was PS's "secret influence". Royal Trux>Pussy Galore, btw.

Huk-L, Monday, 28 March 2005 14:04 (fifteen years ago) link

Pussy Galore were fucking massive, but I don't hear anything of them in Primal Scream. Not an iota.

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Monday, 28 March 2005 14:34 (fifteen years ago) link

i should try to find their exile on main street tape. it's somewhere up in the attic, i think. but yeah dial m for mofo is great.

I have a CD-R of Exile sitting in a box less than three feet from me. It's got the Sugarshit Sharp EP on it, too.

Pussy Galore were pretty great. I saw them on their final (I think) US tour in '89; they played some shit club in L.A. on a Monday night, as a trio (no Julie) with some eighth-tier glam-rock band called the Dirt Merchants opening up. PG didn't go on stage until 1 AM, and afterward I bought a T-shirt from Bob Bert for $5 - he wanted $10, but I only had $5. Shirt long gone now, sadly.

Somebody who saw one of my bands play its first show over ten years ago later told me that we reminded him favorably of the first Pussy Galore gig, which he'd also seen. This is one of the best compliments I've ever gotten.

Douglas (Douglas), Monday, 28 March 2005 15:08 (fifteen years ago) link

God, that live version Pussy Galore do of "No Count" on the Pussy Gold 5000 EP indicates that they could totally destroy live.
I still treasure my copy of "Groovy Hate Fuck", what a totally awesome record that is.

Drew Daniel (Drew Daniel), Monday, 28 March 2005 15:14 (fifteen years ago) link

I think the influence was more in attitude and the way they mashed different things together Neubauten,No Wave,Garage Rock etc, also did a brilliant live version of "When I Get Off" by DMZ,i know the Jesus and Mary Chain and Bobby Gillespie loved "Right Now" in fact i saw Jim Reid eagerly looking at the reissued "Right Now" CD in Rough Trade a good few years ago.

peter lloyd (peter lloyd), Monday, 28 March 2005 15:18 (fifteen years ago) link

eighth-tier glam-rock band called the Dirt Merchants
They weren't very good, but I recall them as a quasi-noise rock band who managed to get one album out on a major (said album being a perennial used bin filler).

dlp9001, Monday, 28 March 2005 15:53 (fifteen years ago) link

Pussy Galore as influencers : substantial
Pussy Galore as a live band : a blast
Pussy Galore as a studio band: boring after 5 minutes

Ferlin Husky (noodle vague), Tuesday, 29 March 2005 17:36 (fifteen years ago) link

Not the first few RTX albums!

I really like them, but I'd definitely take Historia over the first three Trux albums. It's the best mixing of Spencer and Hagerty together.

Tim Ellison (Tim Ellison), Tuesday, 29 March 2005 17:38 (fifteen years ago) link

For some reason, I always thought Historia was an Italian compilation. I guess I'm wrong, huh?

Huk-L, Tuesday, 29 March 2005 17:44 (fifteen years ago) link

It was their last album, with only Spencer, Hagerty, and Bert.

Tim Ellison (Tim Ellison), Tuesday, 29 March 2005 17:50 (fifteen years ago) link

They were important to me at the time as I was seeing lots of garage punk bands live, actually but spending most of my record money on contemporary noise like Sonic Youth and the Butthole Surfers. Pussy Galore combined the two and made me realise there were a lot of other people playing both ends of that field.

Haven't disturbed my Pussy Galore vinyl in some time, but seems to me they beat the Blues Explosion both live and on disc.

Soukesian, Tuesday, 29 March 2005 17:54 (fifteen years ago) link

I don't really consider Historia De La Music Rock as Pussy Galore though... it was kinda after ther fact, and it's more a joint Jon Spencer/Neil Hagerty collaboration... it is my favorite Pussy Galore album, actually... maybe that's why I conveniently set it aside from the standard Galore canon.

donut debonair (donut), Tuesday, 29 March 2005 18:01 (fifteen years ago) link

For some reason, I always thought Historia was an Italian compilation. I guess I'm wrong, huh?

It was designed to look like Spanish compilation LPs that you can find in used record stores all over North America, but it is in fact an album of originals and a couple of covers. I've always liked its catalogue number of 007.

Vic Funk, Tuesday, 29 March 2005 18:03 (fifteen years ago) link

It's also a crime that, AFAIK, Historia De La Musica Rock (xpost/conf to hstencil: the only Pussy Galore album I didn't sell back, besides the live album on In The Red) hasn't been reissued on Matador like the other albums. Nor has the Corpse Love comp. I'm guessing its label rights issues, or maybe the artists in question just aren't proud of them.

donut debonair (donut), Tuesday, 29 March 2005 18:33 (fifteen years ago) link

Don't Jones me, motherfucker!

NOTE: I never knew what this meant. But it sounds quite cool.

Good Dog (Good Dog), Tuesday, 29 March 2005 18:37 (fifteen years ago) link

I talked to Neil Hagerty not too long after the Matador PG reissues came out (while he was touring Accellerator), and he was kinda, "Well, I don't mind. I still get paid for those records."
PS, his new book is really good. The short stories are okay, but his essay on the sitcom "Wings" is, like, the best TV writing I've ever read.

Back in 1997 or early 1998, I posted on Matador's message board asking why Historia wasn't getting reissued, and Gerard or Accutron or somebody with authority said they weren't offered it by Jon. I've just assumed that he was trying to bury it and make the official PG story end with Live: In the Red (last show, nothing happened after). Corpse Love was still in print when the Matador reissues came out (dunno if it still is), so that's why it's not on Matador.

Interesting Brit press clipping (spelling Hagerty's name wrong 2 out of 4 times) effectively announcing the end of PG circa Historia and start of Royal Trux: http://www.rtxarchive.com/hagerty/pussygalore/images/pg_historia_disarray.jpg

Bob Bert!

Do you like Bob Bert?

I think I do, but it might just be the name.

It is very Sesame Street.

Like Ernie Els.

PJ Miller (PJ Miller), Wednesday, 30 March 2005 11:12 (fifteen years ago) link

I liked "groovy hate fuck/feel good about your body" and er the one w/the pruplish cover. I forget the title. I saw them live, c/w junkyard percussion and julia cafritz (? I think)'s live schtick which = she could either "sing" or "play" guitar, but not both at once. They were highly entertaining.

I hear no discernable "influence" on Primal Scream, unless it's BG's terrible singing, and Julia's singing was far far funnier anyway.

Pashmina (Pashmina), Wednesday, 30 March 2005 11:21 (fifteen years ago) link

best tracks = "cunt tease" "you're nothing but a cu-unt tease/ FUCK YOU!!" and "HC Rebellion" where someone reads out this incredibly self righteous letter from something like maximum rock n roll, whilst someone else (calum perhaps haha) rants about just wanting the chicks in the background, this over a great fall-ish clank-rock backing.

Pashmina (Pashmina), Wednesday, 30 March 2005 11:23 (fifteen years ago) link

Also, they're a great band to cop off when you first pick up a guitar, b/c all their early stuff can me played on one string! Just make sure you leave that style behind asap though, b/c it's a furrow that many people have ploughed before.

Pashmina (Pashmina), Wednesday, 30 March 2005 11:26 (fifteen years ago) link

Purplish cover = Right Now. I like all the ones I have, but play the Sugarshit Sharp EP more than the rest of them put together. The cover of 'Yu Gung' is great.

As for Bob Bert, I can't say I liked the Bewitched album I got all that much.

NickB (NickB), Wednesday, 30 March 2005 11:27 (fifteen years ago) link

I was just fitting a set of halogen spotlights to the kitchen ceiling, and it was kind of a boring job, so I was thinking about what I just posted, and I got the lyrics to "cunt tease" a bit wrong, didn't I?

male singer: "I've got you where I want yeah down on your knees/becuz I'm nothing but a cu-unt tease"

female singer "FUCK YOU"!!!

So it's kind of a call and response thing, I suppose.

Pashmina (Pashmina), Wednesday, 30 March 2005 11:52 (fifteen years ago) link

the bewitched lp is no good? i got a 7 which was good, but never got the lp

charltonlido (gareth), Wednesday, 30 March 2005 11:58 (fifteen years ago) link

Well the one I had wasn't much cop. IIRC the first song (the one that namechecks the Runaways?) is okay in a dumb singalong sort of way, but I couldn't really get into the rest.

NickB (NickB), Wednesday, 30 March 2005 12:05 (fifteen years ago) link

Bob Bert plays good drums on Chrome Cranks records, whatever that's worth. Is he in the Knoxville Girls, too? I can never remember.

THere's a letter from Mick Jagger's lawyer printed inside Dial 'M'... that says something to the effect of "We regret that Mr. Jagger can not comply with your request" - I've heard that it's either he's turning down an invitation to appear on the album, or denying them permission to release Exile.

xgurggleglgllg (xgurggleglgllg), Monday, 3 July 2006 21:13 (thirteen years ago) link

Right Now is probably closest to Corpse Love.

Then I guess go chronological - Sugarshit Sharp, Dial M For Motherfucker, Historia de la Musica Rock.

The Live In The Red album is pretty great too.

Colonel Poo (Colonel Poo), Tuesday, 4 July 2006 08:20 (thirteen years ago) link

Yokay.

fuckfuckingfuckedfucker (fuckfuckingfuckedfucker), Wednesday, 5 July 2006 18:56 (thirteen years ago) link

How does Right Now "rock more authentically" than Historia?

The distinction is that Pussy Galore always felt like an EXERCISE. Which was a drag. Yeah, exercises can result in good music - Stereolab made good music. But it weighs down on things. Historia feels more like just making music. The Godz were free, Royal Trux were free, and this record is free. (Occasionally, Spencer does seem to be doing his schtick, like on "Mono Man" - one of your favorites on the record).

Tim Ellison (Tim Ellison), Wednesday, 5 July 2006 19:02 (thirteen years ago) link

And the fact that it's just him and Hagerty is key. "Revolution Summer" could have been on Sugarshit Sharp or something and been fucked up by some other Joe or Josephina making *shit noise* on guitar!

Tim Ellison (Tim Ellison), Wednesday, 5 July 2006 19:10 (thirteen years ago) link

Yeah. The schtick quotient. It's a problem, ain't it?

For me, Spencer's borderline-horrifying attitude schtick just somehow works in PG's dumbfuck noisepunk context. Seems both appropriate and funny. Whereas it really, REALLY doesn't work for the rock/blues thing he moved on to. (Like, I can't even listen to that one song where he humiliates poor old R.L. Burside with his retarded "blues" interjections. "Snake drive!" my black ass...)

Now, I can't say how, exactly, but "Right Now!" fucking does my head in properly. It feels connected and right-on and effortlessly appealing all the way through. Course, there's nothing to the music but denatured "rock action," but it STILL kicks a million miles of flabby white ass.

And I just don't get that same feeling of effortless, exhilarating, spontaneous CORRECTNESS from "Historia". It just sounds like a group of simililarly-minded junkie-pose hipsters rotating the blues grinder while they try to figure out what to do next. Nothing special.

But, you know, that's just me...

fuckfuckingfuckedfucker (fuckfuckingfuckedfucker), Wednesday, 5 July 2006 19:23 (thirteen years ago) link

Oh, and Spencer would have sang "Revolution Summer" more garble-mouthed if it had been on an earlier record.

Tim Ellison (Tim Ellison), Wednesday, 5 July 2006 19:24 (thirteen years ago) link

"Revolution Summer" is beyond reproach. I have nothing bad to say about it. One of my very favorite Pussy Galore songs.

Dr. Superman, Wednesday, 23 January 2008 08:03 (twelve years ago) link

Not a hard record to find, dude, at least not on CD. There's currently one on eBay for $2.50 Buy It Now.

I've been half-heartedly searching for a vinyl version for a few years, though

and just to weigh in, it IS their best album

you Historia boosters are nuts. That record is easily their worst, right behind Right Now.

sleeve, Thursday, 24 January 2008 15:35 (twelve years ago) link

WTF Right Now is awesome! I guess I would say Historia is their worst album, as in least best, cos I like the others more, but it's still a good album and I don't know why they didn't reissue it when they did the others.

Colonel Poo, Thursday, 24 January 2008 15:37 (twelve years ago) link

I'm not saying it's just their best, but EASILY their best. As someone said upthread, Pussy Galore in theory were awesome, and live (judging by the footage I've seen) were awesome. But come on, those records sound like shit. Historia is just an amazing rock and roll record - proto-Trux, or like the Workdogs if they were much, much better.

For some unknown reason, it's also one of those damn CDs that just won't load into iTunes for me...

If Assholes Could Fly This Place Would Be An Airport, Thursday, 24 January 2008 15:57 (twelve years ago) link

DJ Mencap, Thursday, 24 January 2008 16:02 (twelve years ago) link

those records sound like shit

That's what I LIKE about them! Are you really trying to say Historia sounds better than something like "Kill Yourself"? 'Cause to me, the non-production sound way better and Historia sounds like, well, a Workdogs album.

Don't know what it is about Right Now (no Julia?) but I always preferred Dial M, with Groovy Hate Fuck sitting up about 10,000 light years above it.

Colonel Poo, Thursday, 24 January 2008 21:51 (twelve years ago) link

I still agree with myfuckingself upthread: Historia still blows. I suspect that if it actually HAD been reissued with the other stuff, there would be no contention on this point.

contenderizer, Thursday, 24 January 2008 23:24 (twelve years ago) link

But come on, those records sound like shit. Historia is just an amazing rock and roll record

Sounding like shit doesn't necessarily preclude an amazing rock and roll record. Better produced or not, though, Historia sounds like they gave up on the project before they entered the studio. Zzzzzzzzzzz. Rob Tannenbaum (I believe) wrote a remarkable review of it in Spin, though.

Then again, my taste re: Pussy Galore are unorthodox. I only love two of their records. Right Now! sounds like shit and is an amazing rock and roll record, most amazingly on "Punch Out," the Bad Boy to the NY Dolls' "Bad Girl."

And Dial M For Motherfucker is one of the greatest albums of the 1980s. It's the pig fuck It Takes a Nation, an ADD whole that exceeds the sum of its tape fuckery, stops and starts, voices ghosting in and out, songs midwiving other songs, repeated themes, DNA strand guitar solos, radio transmissions, phone conversations, beeps, bloops, buzzes, etc. All of which aids the Pussies in rockin' the fuck out. Gawd, I adore this record!

I actually saw the beginning of that House episode but didn't stick around to hear PG. Which Dial M For Motherfucker did he play? ("DWDA" fits the description best.)

Kevin John Bozelka, Thursday, 24 January 2008 23:25 (twelve years ago) link

The guitar noise on Punch Out on Right Now is so fucking great.

Ah! A consensus is forming!

But I played that very track for a student a few weeks ago and he didn't get it. I even banged my head a bit to underline the effect. No go.

Kevin John Bozelka, Thursday, 24 January 2008 23:29 (twelve years ago) link

Plus Dial M For Motherfucker is in the fine tradition of godlike albums with crappy posters inside, e.g. Daydream Nation (still another reason why vinyl >>>>> CDs...has a poster ever been smooshed into a CD? Prolly but I can't think of one right now. Right Now!)

Kevin John Bozelka, Thursday, 24 January 2008 23:35 (twelve years ago) link

Thank you, Kevin John Bozelka, for being right about things.

contenderizer, Thursday, 24 January 2008 23:37 (twelve years ago) link

like the Workdogs if they were much, much better

yeah, sorta my impression. was kinda expecting more hagerty vocals and less Spencer ham. So I haven't really figured out what i think of yet.

Dr. Superman, Thursday, 24 January 2008 23:41 (twelve years ago) link

God bless you Kevin John Bozelka. I didn't wanna be all contrarian, but Dial M is a serious masterpiece. Actually pretty tuneful, in a weird way. I was kinda surprised by how obnoxious DWDA sounded in the House episode, 'cause I never thought of it as *that* annoying. One of my favorite albums of the 80's as well.

dlp9001, Friday, 25 January 2008 00:48 (twelve years ago) link

i can't remember the last time i actually listened to pussy galore. it's been a long time. other than groovy hate fuck, which i feel is its own entity in a weird way, the 2nd side of sugarshit sharp is definitely the thing i have played most over the years. i can't understand anyone not loving that sequence of songs and the sound and everything about it. so amazing to me.

i'd probably like historia more now than when it came out. i LIKED it, but i didn't play it much. and i sold my copy years ago, so that must mean something. or it did at the time. i definitely thought it sounded cool.

scott seward, Friday, 25 January 2008 01:09 (twelve years ago) link

OK, I didn't mean for this to become an aesthetic debate - I love the new Times New Viking, Sic Alps, all the prime ear Siltbreeze stuff, scratchy old blues 78s...I'm not against great music 'sounding like shit.' My problem with PG's albums are just that they render almost every song an incomprehensible blur. Dial M is an exception, I grant you, and a good record, but not as good as Historia. I don't like Sugarshit Sharp at all.

I stand by my opinion of Zen Arcade (don't liked it, never did), but offer Replacements's Tim as being an amazing album despite one of the worst production jobs in rock history.

If Assholes Could Fly This Place Would Be An Airport, Friday, 25 January 2008 01:34 (twelve years ago) link

It's probably worth noting that the original CD of Dial M included all of Sugarshit Sharp except for Yu Gong. As a result, I've always thought of SS as an extension of Dial M.

dlp9001, Friday, 25 January 2008 01:46 (twelve years ago) link

"I don't like Sugarshit Sharp at all."

but why? it's so good.

i always liked how tim sounded. and i love zen arcade. we have way different ears. which is cool.

"It's probably worth noting that the original CD of Dial M included all of Sugarshit Sharp except for Yu Gong."

that's just friggin' idiotic.

scott seward, Friday, 25 January 2008 02:34 (twelve years ago) link

yeah, and the CD added a version of Devo's "Penetration Of The Centerfold" in its place! Which is even MORE idiotic! The only place I have that awesome version of Yu-Gung now is on my original cassette.

My Sugarshit Sharp CD has both Yu Gung & Penetration In The Centerfold on it, I have the Mute reissues from the late 90s tho.

Live In The Red is destroying me right now. I never got a chance to hear it before. Everything I could want in a live album. I hope there's a fight on side 2.
