It's been said that the devil has all the best tunes, but that's not the case anymore, since a lil' ol' band from Georgia -- known to friends and followers as Nashville Pussy -- found a way to pick the lock on that storehouse of demonic sonics and make off with some of its most incendiary contents. While they've been at it for the better part of the decade, the band -- fronted by the hard-livin' hard-rockin' husband/wife team of Blaine Cartwright and Ruyter Suys -- has never been more intensely supercharged than on Get Some. The disc, their fourth full-length and first for Spitfire, offers heaping helpings of neck-snapping guitar riffage and a full-on embrace of the sort of good-time decadence that's part and parcel of life below the Mason-Dixon line. It also shows off Cartwright's razor-sharp wit, which permeates the disc with laugh-out-loud moments that'd do John Belushi proud. Get Some, which was helmed by producer Daniel Rey (Ramones, White Zombie, Masters of Reality), ratchets up the heat even further. In songs like "Good Night for a Heart Attack" (which Cartwright describes as "a Van Halen party song , but funnier") and "Lazy White Boy," the band brings the noise with no-bullshit, blue-collar attitude -- and a goodly bit of funk. The "married couple thing" is the glue that's held Nashville Pussy together through several lineup changes and a passel of label affiliations. Cartwright (a veteran of high-octane roots-punkers Nine Pound Hammer) and Suys (a Canadian native who calls herself "a born-again southerner") formed the band in 1996, quickly churning out the feral, claws-out Let Them Eat Pussy. After four albums and hundreds of nights blasting eardrums around the world, Cartwright says the band hasn't moved too far -- in terms of attitude, at least -- from where it started. And in terms of sound? Furrowed-brow types might throw around all sorts of fancy terminology in describing how Nashville Pussy's hard-living hard rock cuts to the quick, but Cartwright prefers to put it in terms just about everyone can understand.
