Details: Used n/m copy of Pussy Galore reissued EP for "Pussy Gold 5000" from 2014 Record Store Day. "'Pussy Gold 5000' is a reissue for Record Store Day of deconstructivist New York no-fi blues garage slackers Pussy Galore. This was the band's second 12'' release. Following their debut E.P 'Groovy Hate Fuck', 'Pussy Gold 5000' first came out in 1987 on the band's own label 'Shove', the original pressing of which sold out almost immediately." 

Description: "Pussy Galore was an American garage rock and punk band that formed in Washington, D.C. in 1985. They had a consistently fluid line-up until their demise in 1990. They took their name from the character in the James Bond film, Goldfinger, and their sound was inspired by The Rolling Stones and Einstürzende Neubauten. Some members would later play in The Jon Spencer Blues ExplosionBoss HogChrome CranksFree Kitten, or Royal Trux (amongst others).

The band's earliest incarnation consisted of guitarist and vocalist Jon Spencer, guitarist and occasional vocalist Julia Cafritz and drummer John Hammill, though this line-up would be subject to both change and expansion in later years. Following the self-released 7" Feel Good About Your Body, they added guitarist Neil Hagerty. The new lineup recorded the EP Groovy Hate Fuck. This EP, like all of their early releases, would be self-released on their own Shove Records label. After the band moved to New York City they further expanded the line-up by taking on then 16-year-old Cristina Martinez as a guitarist. Martinez was not a musician and had simply taken the photograph for the 7". The band also replaced Hammill with former Sonic Youth drummer Bob Bert. Then on a dare from Sonic Youth, they released a limited-edition cassette and vinyl cover album of the Rolling StonesExile on Main Street. They followed this up in January 1987 with another self-released mini-set Pussy Gold 5000. Shortly after this Martinez left the band and formed Boss Hog with Spencer a few years later."
