Black Pussy—which is a Portland band, not a Too $hort song—is a well-oiled stoner rawk machine. The rhythm section alone can level a city block. The band's debut EP, On Blonde, is gorged with rock sludge and songs that are about as subtle as the band's name (it opens with a number called "Marijuana"). It's one thing to play heavy and get labeled as stoner rock; it's another to make playing stoner rock your mission statement. Live, the members of Black Pussy are a cross between Band of Gypsys and the biker chic of Judas Priest, which is to say these guys (and gal) are trying really hard. All of the elements of a great band are there—give them a few years and Black Pussy could be more than just a silly name. MARK LORE
