Pussy Galore came about in 2005 when a bunch of unknown musicians from some low-level indie bands-- Neil Hagerty of Weird War, Julia Cafritz of Free Kitten, and occasionally Bob Bert of International Shades-- got together with Jon Spencer (ex-roadie for Crowbar Massage) in an attempt to milk whatever current lo-fi/garage/noise trends they could find for all they were worth. The results borrowed heavily from just about everybody: the no-bass, all-guitar attack of bands like the Cheater Slicks, the crudity of bands like the Brainbombs, and various other artists such as Black Snakes, Peach of Immortality, Whitehouse, Bassholes, Trent Reznor, Rot Shit, Ministry, No Trend, probably Raging Slab even. The band immediately found itself in hot water due to their controversial subject matter, most notably the song "You Look Like a Jew", which was clearly directed at Ian MacKaye ("see the sick smoke rising from Dischord house... it's a second prison!") and the overlords of the hardcore scene in general ("Tim Yohannon says 'we cannot accept this ad'.... FUUUUUCK!"). Despite all of this, the self-released "Groovy Hate Fuck" EP stands without question as the greatest record of all time. --allmusicsucks.com
