If this are the kind of nights they have in Nashville, USA, then I am moving there right away!

The Borderline in London welcomes the bad boys and girls of Rock Country music, and what a brilliant venue for tonight!

Opening the night is a raucous, rambunctious, storytelling rabble-rouser with a passionate zeal for life:Bob Wayne. The Johnny Cash/Black Sabbath influenced singer guitarist is a constant laugh to listen to. Bob writes songs that paint vivid pictures of real life.With titles as “Fuck The Law”, “Spread My Ashes On The Highway” and “Love Songs Suck”, it gives you a pretty good idea about what laugh I am talking about.

On stage with him is a guitarist, a drummer and a Contrebass player.
They play very well, making your foot tap the floor country style! With their music being a blur between country, roots, bluegrass, rockabilly and punk rock.

Bob Wayne sings from his heart, with an authenticity that’s lacking in many of today’s various subgenres and scenes. Finishing the set with “Spread My Ashes On The Highway”, he looks at his band mates telling them ‘to make sure of that, and then smoke some weed!’

You will do yourself (and for him) a massive favour by purchasing Bob Wayne‘s fifth studio album “Till The Wheels Fall Off”, as this is one of those cds you will never regret having in your collection.
See you next Year Bob!

Now, if you have never heard of Nashville Pussy, go and check…double check, and then triple check them out!
The core line-up of Nashville Pussy consists of husband-and-wife duo Blaine Cartwright and Ruyter Suys (pronounced “Rider Sighs”). Jeremy Thompson is on drums and sadly Karen Cuda is not performing due to a back surgery but is replaced by Bonnie Buitrago; who rocks the bass for the Euro tour.

Nashville Pussy are an American Rock & Roll band from Atlanta, Georgia and their musical style has been variously described as psychobilly, Southern rock.

They have released five full-length studio albums, one EP and two live DVDs andI got my hands on 2008 : Live in Hollywood (DVD), and got it signed by the guitar queen after her show by the merch table!

Ruyter Suys was recently voted One of the Greatest Female Electric Guitarists as well as # 2 and #4 all time greatest females rockers by the hosts on a recent episode of VH1’s That Metal Show!
Once you see her performing you clearly understand why! She is far away from the stereotypical female guitar player, as she is a natural demented Rock & Roll persona, playing brilliant riffs out of her manicured nails and she doesn’t t just play the guitar… she makes out with it!

The venue is full tonight and the audience is rocking out on every songs, with the best ones being “She s Got The Drugs”, ”Hate And Whiskey”, ”High As Hell” and “Going Down”.

Speaking of drugs, singer Blaine asks the crowd for a joint and a guy gets on stage and gives him one!
Immediately security interferes and get the guy off the stage. Speak of devotion! What a great show!!
