The new E.P. From Nottingham based garage-punk schlock rockers Dick Venom and the Terrortones is quite the blast, offering five tracks of sleazy riffs and b-movie influences executed with attitude and swagger to spare.
The Monsterpussy Sessions opens in fine style with Valley of the Alley Alligator Girls, an ode to giant reptilian women with a catchy main riff and Dicks offbeat wordplay on full display, ending with the notion that he could “make a handbag out of that tail between your legs” Much like last years Invasion of the Spider Queen, it’s a fun, funny distillation of everything great about this band whilst, what with the solo and greater vocal range, showing off an expanded approach to songwriting and sets the tone for what’s to follow.
What does follow is four tracks that each put a different spin on the style from the bounce and vocal sillyness of Bellyslam City (“AWABABABA!”), the tombstone funk of Crypt Tonight, creeping greaser vibes of Dead Deadbeat Delinquent and finally the sexually charged, strutting hysterics of No Good to Get Up To.
Recorded live in the studio and available physically on cassette or as a free download, this shouldn’t be missed by fans of reptiles, fun or men in lengerie. Bands like this are vital to rock n roll, where influences are clearly there to be traced, yet the end product is very much its own monster(pussy) and most importantly a dickin’ good time.
