Quintron & Miss Pussycat- Goblin Alert
Q & P with live drums & guitar - Quintron & Miss Pussycat with full band- produced by GREG CARTWRIGHT!
HERE IT IS!!
The first proper Quintron and Miss Pussycat full-length since 2011’s Sucre Du Sauvage, and the duo’s third for Memphis Tennessee’s Goner Records. Produced by Greg Cartwright (The Oblivians / Reigning Sound) and recorded on 2 inch tape at Gainesville Florida’s PULP ARTS studio, Goblin Alert picks up where Su- cre Du Sauvage left off- snotty, semi-political, trash-anthems like, “Teenagers Don’t Know Shit”, “Stroller Pollution”, and “Buc-ee’s Got A Problem”. Also, for the first time ever, Q and P have ditched the drum machine in favor of New Orleans jazz-basher, Sam Yoger (Babes, AJ Davilla) on drum kit, and slinky Florida man, Danny Clifton (Room 13, Jane Jane Pollock) on hollow body guitar.
The resulting vibe is some kinda tweaked-out Miami disco dipped into a Mississippi mudslide, especially the tracks featuring Biloxi talk-box master, Benny Divine (aka BENNI’). And for the mystery lovers, there is 3/4 power-ballad entitled, “Where’s Karen”, featuring backing vocals by Heather Lee (Room 13, Jane Jane Pollock), about a troubled girl who vanished on Mardi Gras day.
ABOUT QUINTRON AND MISS PUSSYCAT
Quintron and Miss Pussycat have been making genre-defying noise and hard rocking dance music in New Orleans for over fifteen years. The majority of their 16 full-length albums have the psychedelic soul of traditional New Orleans party music, filtered through a vintage Hammond B-3, technicolor puppets, and a battal- ion of distorted, homemade instruments. Plus the sounds of the swamp.
In addition to his work with Miss Pussycat, Quintron has been releasing albums featuring a self-made weather synthesizer called "WEATHER WARLOCK", which uses sun, rain, temperature, and barometric pressure to make music. He has also played Hammond organ on a number of records by other artists, most notably THE OBLIVIANS "9 Songs" and STEVE RILEY AND THE MAMOU PLAYBOYS "Grand Isle" which was nominated for a Grammy in 2012 and featured the Quintron penned song "Chatterbox". Quintron has also appeared in several films and television shows, including 2019 Showtime hit, On Becoming A God In Central Florida.
Quintron and Miss Pussycat’s sweaty musical blasts are paralleled in spirit and performance by Miss Pussycat’s dreamy puppet worlds – elaborate, and beautifully crafted for success in intimate venues of late- night drinking and dancing. She has also had several major solo museum exhibitions and, although the puppets are NEVER for sale, ceramics, paintings and other visual work related to her puppetry, are repre- sented by the Webb Gallery in Waxahachie Texas. A large show of oil paintings and ceramics is scheduled for Fall 2020
The Quintron / Miss Pussycat experience is one of barely controlled electronic chaos, "Swamp-Tech" dance beats, small explosions, incredible clothes, and entertaining puppet stories. You can see them perform regularly at the Spellcaster Lodge in New Orleans, Louisiana or on one of their many tours around the world. This act somehow has equal relevance in sleazy nightclubs, pizza restaurants, and university lecture halls.
