Pussyliquor to Release ‘PUSSYLIQUOR 7 WONDER’ in December

Like a breath of fresh air, Brighton punk/riot grrrl group PUSSYLIQUOR are set to unleash their debut single on the 8th of December 2017.

‘PussyLiquor 7 Wonder’, a double A – Side featuring ‘Get Out’ and ‘Kitty Kitty’, is released on limited edition seven – inch vinyl on their own Revulva Records imprint, and is distributed via Republic Of Music.
PUSSYLIQUOR formed in April last year via their degree courses with Access To Music Brighton, the five like-minded souls bonded over a passion for hardcore music and even harder core feminist beliefs.

“Music is our platform; we are strong believers of feminism, we intend to correct the misconceptions around the world and spread fun and joy along the way. Feminism is about eschewing social constraints and showing how unnecessary they are, how we, as women, are subject to ridicule if we are not true to them.

We believe through feminism we can create a community where people can share their experiences and be able to feel unashamed in whatever way they choose to identify. One of the purposes of this band is for us to share our experiences; we felt there had been many times in the past where we wished we could’ve been told more about feminism.”  The band commented. As mission statements go, this is achingly relevant.

Live, the PUSSYLIQUOR line up of Ari Black (Vocals), Victoria Lewis Piper (Drums), Kirsten Grant (Guitar), Hannah Villanueva (Guitar) and Tallulah Turner-Fray (Bass) are a force to be reckoned with. Their no-nonsense approach conjures up the feeling and energy of Cosey Fanni Tutti, L7, The Slits and all those righteous girl groups that didn’t take any shit.

Five switched-on young women – average age of twenty – fighting a cause, hoping that their music will empower other young women to come out from the shadows and celebrate what it means to be a woman. See them at the following venues over the next few months. SEEN will be reviewing when they come to the capital.

Nov 11th – Basingstoke
Nov 9th – Epsom
Nov 15th – The Haunt (w/ Girli)
Dec 1st – The Haunt, Brighton (w/ Los Albertos)
