Cash Pussies – 99% is Shit (The Label) 1979

There appeared to be no shortage of people to hitch a ride on the Sex Pistols gravy train and in particular Sid and his death and the Cash Pussies single was no exception. However it’s not the worst by a long chalk. Unsurprisingly with Dave Goodman as producer it seems to sound remarkably like a the Sex Pistols riff and production on 99% Is Shit. Not bad female vocals from Diana Rich and a little parodying of Belsen Was A Gas in the line ‘London Town where the Jews all pray.’ The B side is weaker with a more kind of folk style vocal.-punk77

    this group was assembled by Fred and Judy Vermorel, The Sex Pistols’ first biographers. originally intended for a film project in 1979 entitled ‘Millions Like Us’, with a soundtrack to be produced by the group Throbbing Gristle, neither of which ever materialized. long-thought to have been a project just for this purpose, but they actually played a few shows and only disbanded when the film was aborted the same year. members included Alternative TV’s Alex Fergusson and The Pistols’ original soundman/producer Dave Goodman. see the excellent book “45 Revolutions vol. 1″ for more info.

    ummm…not really, we just had a baby a few months back and i have been up to my eyeballs with fatherly duties. This site will gain momentum in the very near future. Sorry for the lack of substance here, but I hope you all understand.

    When I was about 19, the guitar player in my band convinced me to buy this; I got it for about $5, it blew me away, and I’ve spent the following six years trying to convince everyone I knew to buy it. Easily one of my favorite records, ever. And you’re high if you think the A-side is better; “Cash Flow” is borderline perfect.
