Inside Nashville Pussy: Ruyter Suys Speaks!

By - Posted Oct 19, 2005

Nashville Pussy is one bad-ass rock ‘n’ roll band. Hailing from Atlanta, GA, this four-piece group has been tearing up the road for about a decade now and show no signs of letting up on its patented brand of booze ‘n’ blooze drenched sleaze-rock. Take AC/DC, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Motorhead, and Ted Nugent and roll ‘em up into one, and you get where these cats are coming from.

Nashville PussyLead by husband-and-wife rock team Blaine Cartwright and Ruyter Suys (bookended by drummer Jeremy Thompson and new ultra-vixen bassist Karen Cuda) and known for fire-breathing, beer-guzzling, sex-filled live shows, Nashville Pussy will out-rock, out-shock, and out-fox any band you can think of. Their new album is titled Get Some, and if that don’t tell ya that this band is obsessed with sex, than I dunno what will.

And we here at G4, the current holders of The Man Show, are also fairly obsessed with sex. Well, as much as we can be for a bunch of video game geeks sitting in cubicles. So we thought we’d catch the Pussies on tour and ask hot-on-fire guitarist Ruyter Suys about sex, rock ‘n’ roll, and The Man Show... just to see what she’d say. Plus, Halloween is coming up, so we wanted to ask these crazy rock ‘n’ rollers about their experiences in costumery and masked shenanigans. Read on…


Hey Ruyter, how are ya!

F**king fabulous.

Where are you on the road right now?

We are in Chicago right now. We performed on Mancow's morning show this morning. He cut us off during “Hate and Whiskey” coz he thought Blaine was a cussin'. We play Minni-no-place tomorrow then back up into Canada to do the rest of that country. Then off to Europe and the West Coast…and Australia, Japan and the Midwest!

How many shows do you guys do a year?

A few too many, but we're working on that!

Nashville PussyHow was it working with Ramones producer Daniel Rey?

Mega Super Awesome!

Your new album kicks ass (as always). How do you feel this one is different then the last few?

It's mostly the old recipe with the addition of Daniel, which was awesome. He’s a cool dude and has some good taste. I think he helped further bring out our hooks and really nailed Blaine’s vocals.

What's your favorite song on the new album?

“Good Night for a Heart Attack.”

Where are you guys playing on Halloween?

As usual we are playing with ourselves! We actually get to party this Halloween in Atlanta. No working on Halloween this year!!

nashville pussyWill you dress upon stage? What as?

I've done Ted Nugent a few times. That's always liberating running around in a loincloth. I dressed up as Courtney Love, but Blaine wouldn't come near me all night. I was also Frankenhooker!  Blaine was David Crosby last year and Crackula the year before. He was the Phantom of the Grand Ol Opry one time too! Jeremy has been a Viking and a zombie. This year he may be a Vampirate. I've been threatening to be Dee Snider seeing as all I gotta do is put on my shoulder pads.

What’s your favorite horror movie?

Jeremy is the Horror movie fiend so he says King Kong without even a second's thought! Blaine's is Curse of the Demon. Race with the Devil is pretty good too.

What’s your favorite horror bad guy?

Chop Top from Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2.

What’s your favorite horror monster?

Creature from the Black Lagoon.

Nashville PussyWhat’s your favorite candy?

Muddy Bears (Chocolate covered Gummies), Snickers and Mounds.

Ever had your house egged?

Only from the inside.

When was the last time you egged someone?

Who said it was the last time?

We are showing The Man Show now on G4, are you a fan?

Yes, of the early funny ones.

Nashville PussyWhat is your favorite thing about it?

That little fat kid.

Ever jump up and down on a trampoline?

D'o! I had sex on one and under one too!

Do you consider yourself a Juggy?

No.

Could you kick a Man Show Juggy's ass?

I wouldn't want to.

Would you rather kick, kiss, or lick a Juggy's ass?

Kiss always! Lick maybe too!

Anything else y’all wanna plug?

The Juggy's asses maybe!!
