Black Pussy, Chron Goblin, Nikki Valentine & the Gypsy Riders

Black Pussy, Chron Goblin, Nikki Valentine & the Gypsy Riders
Thursday, June 4, 2015

Black Pussy’s heavy, bluesy sound and clear influences of Kyuss, Hendrix and The Who have found a niche in the ever-growing, global stoner-rock movement. The band exclusively uses vintage Sunn gear, pushing a massive 44 speakers when playing live and tends to land shows with the heaviest, sludgiest bands in the Portland, Oregon scene. However, their classic, upbeat, relentlessly hooky tracks have led to Hill coining the phrase “stoner pop,” like The Cars meets Black Sabbath. The band’s catchy music tends to seduce anyone, even those who walk in off the street after seeing the intriguing band name on the marquis of the venue.

The 2012 debut album, On Blonde, is Hill’s baby: It was written and mostly recorded by him alone, though guitarist Ryan McIntire, drummer Dean Carroll, bassist Aaron Poplin and keyboardist Chief O’Dell were later added to the band. The record, which kicks off with the rip of a bong and sounds like a drug-riddled midnight misadventure in a ’70s muscle car, even found its way across the ocean as well: The track “Blow Some Steam Off” landed a spot on the February 2013 Metal Hammer compilation. 2013 saw a split release from Black Pussy and LA-based Biblical Proof Of UFOs: a contact high-inducing, 22-minute psychedelic opus entitled “Galaxies.”

“For The Sake Of Argument” is the first taste of Black Pussy’s forthcoming album, Magic Mustache, which will be out in early 2015. The band’s evolved sound takes the feel of rock legends Deep Purple, Thin Lizzy and Hawkwind and combines it with the heaviness of stoner rock icons Kyuss and Monster Magnet, adding add a potent dose of pop sensibility reminiscent of The Cars and Queens Of The Stone Age for the quintessential stuck-in-your-head-for-weeks, sound that is Black Pussy. Filmed using an analog liquid light projector, the video utilizes a classic yet unique-looking take on the psychedelic and drug inspired imagery popularized in the 60s and 70s. Black Pussy are back doing what they do best: sending on a journey through time and space where vintage gear acts as the controls, and sound waves are the highways.

From the smoke-filled rooms of university residence to beer-stained stages across western Canada and abroad, Chron Goblin spread the stoke wherever they go. Filling bars and venues alike since their 2009 inception, the party hardened four-piece have amassed a loyal fanbase with their addictive on-stage energy as well as three intoxicating rock concoctions: a self-titled EP in 2010, 2011’s acclaimed full-length One Million from the Top, and 2013's sophomore release, Life for the Living. Since then, the band has proven their well-earned notoriety by landing gigs with some of the biggest names in heavy music, including Red Fang, Vista Chino, Orange Goblin, 3 Inches of Blood, Bison, and The Devin Townsend Project.

Following their performance at London's Desertfest UK 2013, the band hit the road in 2014 and completed their first performances in the United States, including stops in Portland, Seattle, Spokane, Missoula, and Great Falls. Chron Goblin are currently in pre-production for their next full-length album, set for release in mid 2015. In the meantime, smoke a beer and bang your head to their latest music video for their track "Blood Flow".
