Miss Pussycat is in tow, natch…

Mad
organist Quintron, along with his partner-in-crime/puppeteer Miss Pussycat, is
hitting the road today on the Too Thirsty
4 Love
tour, to promote the
album of the same name, due Oct. 14 from Memphis label Goner, his 10th album to date. They’ll be out for well over a month, bringing their “barely
controlled electronic chaos, Swamp-Tech beats, small explosions, incredible
clothes, and entertaining puppet stories” to their adoring public.

 

Here’s
the scoop on the record, direct from the label:

 

 

 

Too Thirsty 4 Love finds New Orleans’
favorite son and finest organist all over the map in the best possible sense of
the word- from the sultry bedroom funk of “The Boss Wants to Party with
You” to the boozy skiffle of “Sunday Night” to the experimental
minimalism of “Reborn.” Whether he’s reimagining The Police’s
“Roxanne” on the title track or inspiring the crowd with the catchy
party anthem “Model Ex Citizen,” the mood is raucous fun, the place
is Cajun Atlantis and the sound is undeniably pure Quintron.

 

This album was recorded entirely live in a
bizarre 2-track studio set deep in the heart of New Orleans’ now famous 9th Ward. The live
tracks were then played back and sung over. Let’s call this the “6th grade
bedroom style” of multi-tracking. For any interested equipment nerds, the
Spellcaster Lodge studio consists of 4 microphones, one custom Neotek Series 1
board, and a 2 track tape deck. And a corkscrew.

 

Quintron’s musical partner Miss Pussycat plays
maracas and sings backup as well as entertaining all age groups with her highly
amusing technicolor puppet shows. She has just recently finished filming a 10
episode puppet drama called TRIXIE AND THE TREE TRUNKS for VBS (Vice) TV.
