BLACK PUSSY -
Black Pussy's heavy, bluesy sound and clear influences of Kyuss, Hendrix and The
Who have found a niche in the ever-growing, global stoner-rock movement. !
The band exclusively uses vintage Sunn gear, pushing a massive 44 speakers when
playing live and tends to land shows with the heaviest, sludgiest bands in the Portland,
Oregon scene. However, their classic, upbeat, relentlessly hooky tracks have led to Hill
coining thephrase "stoner pop," like The Cars meets Black Sabbath. The band's catchy
music tends to seduce anyone, even those who walk in off the street after seeing the
intriguing band name on the marquis of the venue.
MOTHER SHIP -
Rock n’ Roll history is rife with brothers working together to create their artistic vision. But rarely do we hear about a full-fledged family unit embarking down the treacherous path of a musical career. In the case of Texas based Mothership, the Brother’s Juett (Kyle on bass, Kelley on guitar) lifted off the pad for the first time in 2010, the band began to gain momentum and notoriety with their unabashed live shows.
In late 2011, enter the mighty Judge Smith to hammer away on the skins. In early 2012, Mothership entered Crystal Clear Studios with Wo Fat mastermind Kent Stump manning the boards and by mid-year, the band self-released their debut album. It was the combination of the 70’s-era heavy rock fuzz and fury mixed with the blistering guitar solos of the NWOBHM-era that drew the bands attention to California-based Heavy Rock label, Ripple Music.
