Want to Watch an 11-Minute Documentary on Harry Pussy?

Posted by on Wed, Apr 23, 2014 at 3:32 PM

Well, you’ve got your wish. Tom Smith shot this mini-doc about the Florida-based noise-rock band Harry Pussy, American Classic Rock, in 1993 with the loose change he found under his sofa cushions. Sonically and visually, the production values [understatement alert] leave a lot to be desired. But the footage captures the wild, anti-social spirit of US underground rock in the early Clinton years for groups who had no chance of catching any momentum from Nirvana’s tsunami of commercial success. Harry Pussy—drummer Adris Hoyos and guitarist Bill Orcutt, at this point—were pure idful chaos. After the band's performance in American Classic Rock, Hoyos nonchalantly says, “If anybody would like to have three-way sex with us after the gig, just let us know. Thank you.” Isn't that what every musician is thinking onstage? Harry Pussy just came right out and said it, because that's how they rolled.
