Review: Nashville Pussy + Sinner Sinners
New Cross Inn London

It is always great to go to new club or the one you have not been to in ages. Different environment, change of a scenery, new music, new bands. New people. Keeps you moving forward, food for your thirsty soul.
New Cross Inn is not a new place. Located next to itÂ’s older sister, The Venue, in south east London it is somewhat out of the radar for the most concert going fans. However in recent years, and thru some hard working promoters, this rocky happening place has rightful stake its claim for a busiest little venue around. Nearby student digs and bars and you average Wednesday night looks a whole lot rosier.

And when an acclaimed Grammy’s nominated band announced their show there, you kind of stand up and notice. But let’s start from the beginning.
Support from Hobo was loud and entertaining. I really liked Hammerjack band that has its grass roots firmly in Southern Rock, and a front-man that know what to do. Promising start to an evening.
Sinner Sinners are originally from France and Netherlands. Band founded by Steve and Sam Thill relocated to LA a few years ago, and things started happening. Sinners love their hard core tho it is served on a Goth punk plate. Add to that some famous friends in a shape of Jesse Hughes of EODM fame and the picture becomes clearer. For this tour they are joined by a talented Medina Rekic (White Miles), without a band since leaving the aforementioned but hungry for playing live. I have to say this marriage looks incredibly spot on as Steve’s singing and crowd enticing supported by Medina riff shredding is an absolute ace. More more. I say more !
And now for the mains.

For Nashville Pussy are not your average pub band. US rockers have in last 20 years since forming, played every single bar and club on this planet, and earned their right to be called one of the hardest working (and drinking) bands around.
And Atlanta, Georgia four piece are a band you must see. And hear. Hard rock and psychobilly are some of the genres the band has been described as, but in reality it is an eclectic, inspiring wild party you are being dragged to, a memorable ride you will love with every inch of you body. And every inch you will fill the following day.
Nashville Pussy sound like Lemmy and AC/DC love child, and at this point I want you to hold that thought and think music.
Frontman Blaine Cartwright screaming and growling is what you expect from a rock show in sweaty bar, but Ryter Suys on lead guitar is simply phenomenal. Mind boggling. Rock Goddess. End of.
To play your music to your fans is extremely satisfying but to do it Nashville Pussy style is unforgettable.
