BLAINE'S ACOUSTIC TOUR
For those of you who don't already know, I'm doing an acoustic tour opening for Birdcoud in October. The dates are posted below. That brings up to 2 important questions.
WHY THE HELL ARE YOU DOING AN ACOUSTIC TOUR?
I finally get to play these great songs I wrote in a situation where every brilliant, funny, dirty word can be heard loud and clear for the first time. I'll be playing favorites from both NASHVILLE PUSSY and NINE POUND HAMMER.
And I'll also have EARL CRIM from Nine Pound Hammer playing electric guitar with me. So it's not really all acoustic. At all.
We did several gigs like this back in January.
Believe me, we rock these songs up like fucking crazy. You'll dig the shit out of it, I promise.
WHO THE HELL IS BIRDCLOUD?
They are 2 very, very hot chicks that sing dirtier and sometimes funnier songs than I do!! No shit!
Just checkout their brilliant videos like Washing My Big Ole Pussy and Fuck You Cop on YouTube and you'll know why they're my favorite band.
ALSO, ONE OF THE GIRLS PLAYS HARMONICA INTO THE OTHER ONES PUSSY DURING THE SHOW!!!!!
There's also another band on the bill called MOUNTAIN SPROUT. They are real Arkansas hillbillies who play wild authentic bluegrass.
It's going to be a great show! Fucking great!

WHAT THE HELL AM I DOING?Good question. Yes, I'm actually taking a newly acquired acoustic guitar and going on a tour singing some of the best songs I've ever written.
Why? Not sure yet. But it's going to be fucking fun!I have Earl Crim sitting in and adding some tasty licks and rocking solos on his
beat up telecaster every night.
We've been jamming for the last 3 days and came up with a great set list.See this tour if you can.
It might not ever happen again.
Oh yeah! I'll also be carrying some rare Pussy stuff for sale that you'll only find at my
shows on this tour.I'll also be around to sign anything you want me too, shoot the shit, and smoke your weed.See you on the road!

Well well well motherfuckers. The revolution is here and if tastes better than fried chicken coated in Cajun cornflakes!! As a matter of fact, that's what I'm having for lunch to celebrate!! I'm just glad I've lived long enough to see this day and to taste the hot sweet grease of victory!!
For the last 30 years people have asked me over and over "how do I buy music straight from the band?". Until now, you couldn't. That's right, until NOW!! You can now get great UNRELEASED NASHVILLE PUSSY, KENTUCKY BRIDGEBURNERS and more straight from us! Just click HERE to the INSTANT DOWNLOADS. Along with all of the classic Slinging Pig Records, we have 4 great new UNRELEASED MONSTERS!! Check this shit out!! They are all great!!
This is a very good quality recording of an obviously inspired performance. It was the very last night of the European 2009 From Hell To Texas Tour we did with the Supersuckers. This recording even features Supersuckers guitarist Ron Heathman on our best ever version of Nutbush City Limits! The show was professionally recorded and we talked about releasing some songs from it, but it was put on the shelf. No kidding, that's where I just found it, on a shelf at Pussy Manor. I'm glad I did and you will be too. Play it loud! It's just like being there!! Maybe you actually were there - It was an amazing show and we're excited to offer it to y'all!
This mesmerizing 5 song live ep from The KENTUCKY BRIDGEBURNERS "No Applause In Antwerp" It was the last night of a long 7 week tour. We played rock n' roll songs about Jesus for a crowd that seemed to hate both. The world's greatest band, in front of the world's worst audience. There was probably a crowd of around 100. And in the words of our Lord "None were saved that day"! In the words of Charleston Heston "Damn them! Damn them all to Hell!" Judge for yourself. We were amazing! Ruyter even thinks we were better than Nashville Pussy at that point (at that point, not anymore) you decide...
LOST PUSSY TRACKS
This LOST PUSSY collection starts with 2 unreleased tracks from the the 1998 Live at Rennes album. It also features 2 live tracks from the 2000 Tattoo The Earth US Tour, including the only authorized live recording of "Go To Hell". The remaining tracks come from early, extremely hard to find short run compilations. Great stuff!!!
BLAINECARTWRIGHT.COM That's right!! Got my own website. It features all the bands that I'm lucky enough to play in. It also has the radio station slingingingpigradio.com I don't know shit about computers, but I know what's cool. And there will be plenty if cool shit on there. It's constantly being tweaked but there's plenty of cool shit to check out right now plus I'm adding stuff all the time, so check it regularly. I've finally realized that I'm never going to write that fucking book I always said I would. Instead I'm going to throw shit on this website. You 'll see!!!
We hit the road this October- November to introduce more of Europe to our latest and best album UP THE DOSAGE!! Tour dates are right here - It's Ruyter's Birthday when we play Hamburg so make sure you dress appropriate for a real whiskey soaked rock n roll party!!

The show has got an ever growing cult. A growing cult? Does that make me the new Charles Manson? Well, one can dream. Let me put it this way. The new podcast starts off with a song by LUCIFER'S FRIEND called RIDE THE SKY. If that doesn't interest you then you are no friend if mine! And as usual, IT'S FUCKING FREE!! slingingpigradio!!!

HEY Y'ALL YOU GOTTA HEAR THIS!! In honor of the upcoming NASHVILLE PUSSY/SUPERSUCKERS TOUR, slingingpigradio is having a SUPERPUSSY month! And it's already started. YOU GOTTA HEAR THIS!! We are not only playing tons and tons of tunes by both these great bands, but also some timeless inspirational rockers from our heroes and peers like Motorhead, Montrose, Danko Jones, Zeke, Thin Lizzy, ZZ Top, Gary Glitter, Link Wray, Black Sabbath. It's a literal "Who's Who Of Who's Great"!! It's the ultimate rock n' roll playlist and the best format we've had here yet at slingingpigradio.com. YOU GOTTA HEAR THIS!! So check it out. It's free!! HAIL JESUS!!! We just received a box of the previously sold out cd THE KENTUCKY BRIDGEBURNERS HAIL JESUS!! Get one while you can at the Rare Shit Store at nashvillepussy.com And if you order one before May 19 I will personally autograph it. You can also buy them and other classic super rare Pussy memorabilia (singles, posters, CDs) at all the Nashville Pussy shows. Sorry if this sounds like a commercial, but I'm very, very proud of HAIL JESUS and I think everyone in the world should own a copy. WE NEED A FAVOR FROM OUR FANS EASTERN HIGH SCHOOL!! in the SOUTHEAST Region Thanks Ruyter! Slinging Pig Radio and it's full of drinking, cussing and rocking. And in the immortal words of Bill Cosby "if you're not careful you just might learn something". Actually I had originally thought that I made that quote up. But as I just wrote those words I remembered that was the opening introduction each week for FAT ALBERT. That means it's time to get back to writing some Hammer tunes. SEE YOU NEXT WEEK KIDS!!! Blaine Cartwright PS Dont forget to go to Facebook and DIG THE PIG!!

HEY Y'ALL Check all this shit out. HAMMER RECORD And it begins! We've started rehearsing new Nine Pound Hammer songs for the new record. Don't believe me? Well suck on this!! Here's a link to a short video showing me and Rob jamming to a new classic cowpunk ditty. Just click this: Hammer Teaser Blaine's Badass Vintage '79 Fender It's a great amp and it's served both bands well. But I've become a bit of a music equipment hoarder. And I'd rather have someone else using it than than keep bumping into it while I'm rocking out in our practice space. And for you Hammer fanatics, it officially had the first notes of the new Hammer record on it. If you decide to buy it you can rest easy knowing that a generous portion of the proceeds will go to my favorite charity "Chicken For Me". "Chicken For Me" is about people from all walks of life coming together to buy me chicken. It's beautiful. THE PIG IS GETTING FATTER We just added several thousand songs to the repertoire here at Slinging Pig Radio. And the PIG's belly is about to burst! And he loves it! Right now there's a little more varied format and both the listeners and critics are raving. You might here Black Sabbath then Link Wray then Clutch then Bo Diddley then The Sex Pistols then Hank III then some old r&b then some classic country. Oh, and lots of Humble Pie! It's all great and it's all FREE!! Just go to slingingpigradio.com Go there. Stay there. And never leave. THE DRUNKEN ROCK SHOW IS THE "BREAKING BAD" OF PODCASTS I really don't know which is lamer, having a podcast or a blog. Now I have both. Even the words "blog" and "podcast" reek of impending boredom. Most podcasts are done by wanna be comedians to an imaginary audience. But THE DRUNKEN ROCK SHOW is about celebrating the time tested teaming of a little alcohol and a lot of great music. I'm calling it the Breaking Bad of podcasts because it's all I'm going to talk about for a while and if you haven't listened to it and we run into each other I will yell at you about it. I guarantee that you will always hear some cool tunes that you haven't heard before-- AND IT'S FUCKING FREE!! Just go to slingingpigradio.com where it can be streamed and downloaded. That's it until I feel the urge to write again. But remember one thing UP THE DOSAGE IS AMAZING!!! Everyone thinks so and you will too.

The Following information comes directly from the fingers of none other than Blaine Cartwright himself! UP THE DOSAGE , the best Pussy record yet, so here's some other shit you guys should know about. THE DRUNKEN ROCK SHOW That's my new podcast. Yeah, I hate the word "podcast", very lame. So are almost all podcasts though. But this one is very different and way way better than all of them. This is more like being a party at Pussy Manor, drinking while I go through my record collection and playing basically what the hell I want to. It's way less talk and way more rock than any other show out there. I promise that you'll always hear several songs and bands that you wouldn't hear otherwise. I just finished my much improved 2nd show and it's really cool. You can stream it on the home page of slingingpigradio.com. AND IT'S FUCKING FREE!!! SLINGING PIG RADIO By the time you read this it will back to full time rocking!!! Recently our original slinging pig generator exploded from too much rock and had to undergo surgery. Thanks to everyone for all the get well cards and letters. But The Pig has fully recovered and can now hold more rocking tunes than ever. So give it a listen because it's great. AND IT'S FUCKING FREE!!!! Leave me a message on our Facebook page NASHVILLE PUSSY will be near you soon! New dates will be announced any day now!! We sound great! Thanks for your support. I'll keep churning out the great music as long as y'all keep listening. And please tell a friend how great we are. I plan on ruling the world by the time I'm 55. That gives me 5 years. That should be enough time... Rare Shit Store! Blaine Cartwright
