Pussycat and the Dirty Johnsons

If you are a DJ, radio station, reviewer, etc. and have not received the Press Pack by separate email including images, tracks, artwork, and videos please contact to be added to our promo list.

The formidable Pussycat is renowned for prowling the audience whilst the adrenaline fuelled Dirty Johnson boys pound out their infectious blend of punk rock ‘n’ roll. Like all cats they are hard to pin down and have been described as one of the most incendiary live bands in the UK.

Their debut studio  LP Exercise Your Demons received many great reviews and, with the high impact raw energy of one of their shows artfully captured by producer Alex McGowan, the eagerly awaited power-packed follow up Dirty Rock’n’Roll gave cause for them to be graced with even higher praise from fans and reviewers alike. Containing eleven blistering tracks, the trio brought in the double-bass skills of Phil Bloomberg (of The Polecats) to guest on a couple of numbers.

Pussycat and the Dirty Johnsons’ video Trouble With The Devil has had over 40,000 hits, no doubt based upon their hard work over the last three years which has seen the band play hundreds of shows, including a number of UK tours and some great festival slots. They’ve played with the likes of The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Thee Oh Sees, The Fuzztones, Mad Sin, The Damned, The Polecats, Demented Are Go, Bow Wow Wow, The Meteors, The Vibrators, and The Rezillos, amongst many others


Currently finishing new material for the eagerly awaited next album, 2017 will see them hitting the roads of the UK again on tour.



With Puss on vocals and guitar, Dirty Jake on guitar and Filfy Antz back on drums (after a two year stint as a T-Rex), this Basingstoke trio create an incredibly tight wall of sound.


Ain’t No Pussy!?! Well that’s for sure!

The Dirty Water Club started in October 1996 in the Tufnell Park neighbourhood of north London, at a venue called The Boston. The club's name is derived from The Standells' 1966 hit 'Dirty Water' which glorifies the US city of Boston, Massachusetts.

Past performers have included The White Stripes (voted by Q Magazine as one of the top 10 gigs of all time, Mojo one of the top 30 and Kerrang one of the top 100!), The Gories, NOBUNNY, Kid Congo Powers (from the Cramps), The Fleshtones, Billy Childish, Radio Birdman, The Dirtbombs, Thee Michelle Gun Elephant, The's, The Horrors and The Brian Jonestown Massacre to name just a few. The club has also seen some original '60s performers, such as The Monks, ? and the Mysterians, Kim Fowley, Sky Saxon, GONN, Michael Davis of the MC5 and more grace its stage.

Their in-house record label, Dirty Water Records, is one of the leading garage/beat/(real) R&B labels in the world.
