Fri 28th February 2014: PUSSYCAT SPECIAL WITH ADDED WELSHNESS!
Prince Albert 418 Coldharbour Lane
Brixton London SW9 8LF [map]
Tel: 020 7274 3771
DJs 9pm - 2.30am
FREE ALL NIGHT!
There was flying fur and lost dog collars galore in Brixton as the ever-exuberant Pussycat & the Dirty Johnsons rolled into town on their latest tour. Described as 'ferociously feral,' the garage/trash band are fronted by the pint-sized Pussycat Johnson, who looks like catwoman and moves like an alleycat possessed with the spirit of rock and roll.
Keeping the dance floor a mass of improbably moving limbs was a selection of Offline's finest DJs, with tastes stretching from punk to skiffle to drum'n' bass to Kylie.
As it was ST DAVID'S DAY after midnight, the all-Welsh DJ Editor ensured that the great nation was celebrated in a suitably tidy music celebration. There's lovely!

PUSSYCAT AND THE DIRTY JOHNSONS
Serving up a floor-filling feast of high-octane punk, raw Stooges rockabilly and blues, this Basingstoke four piece are fronted by Pussycat Johnson - one of the liveliest front women we've ever seen - expect a full on rock'n'roll party!
"You can take one of your five a day by scoffing Kelloggs Faustus; you can also spend 24 years with the Devil; but if you really want to exercise your demons, check out the brilliant Pussycat & The Dirty Johnsons. I hope you all know a good exorcist..." Paul La Poet
