Pussycat Trash

Pussycat Trash were around back in the heyday of the UK riot-grrrl scene of the early 1990s. Along with the likes of HUGGY BEAR and SKINNED TEEN, they forged the backbone of a vital and vibrant underground scene. PUSSYCAT TRASH also contained a young Pete and Rachel, who later went on to form the amazing RED MONKEY. They also ran the inspiring Slampt records, which is unfortunately no more.

Pussycat Trash were sonically far more diverse and adventurous than a good 95% of yer bands out there. Some of their stuff is screaming and furious and it would be hard not to call it hardcore (albeit a very spare and angular and punky strain of hardcore), and then some of their stuff is much quieter and more indie-rock-y. If you pick up the PT discography (as well we all should), please do not faint at the loud tracks nor come yelling to me that “this is not heavy!” at the quiet parts.
