After my latest session in which I was happily poking around in the dearest music of a smelly cat, it was now finally time to listen to the live session of God Pussy. Apparently it’s a recording of live action that happened on 12 01 2016… That’s quite some while ago, but as you see here on YIKIS time has no meaning and hearing it here all the way in 2019 we can certainly say it feels new to me.

What does this God Pussy do for us? I don’t really see it as it’s audio, but sound wise you can easily say that it’s done some noise for us. Not the feline like noises of meowing and purring, or sitting on the fence while fighting off the neighborhood cats and dogs, but more into the kind that you would guaranteed will hear when you stumble in on your local noise show.

There is lots of screeching sound, quite painful to the ears and probably bringing lots of satisfaction to God Pussy upon its creation, but to our humble faces they quickly claim awkward grimaces that look similar to the faces that a person pulls while being at a dentist as teeth are drilled and pulled out. It’s not a happy moment unless you are a masochist… which to be fair; is quite a big market! Especially at noise shows… you will be surprised how many people will be able to attend and sit relatedly in a chair while these noises drill through their skulls… Crazy but true!
I wonder if anyone got ears left to hear Verjault’s part of this release of ‘music’, but if so, than damn! You certainly have some strong ears! But will they be strong enough to face the non-music of Verjault? A
challenge that might easily be taken by the toughest machos out there as Verjault’s music certainly doesn’t seem to wait to unleash nastiness.

Yep, high frequencies, raw terrible noise and whatnot; a whole soupcan full of material that anyone with a sense of musicality would scratch their head for and think ‘what has gone wrong with the world?’. But as those people wander about these noises, Verjault screams seemingly in self wonder here and there throughout this palette of unreasonableness. It’s a hard pill to swallow, even if you wear ear plugs and stand in front of this sound show like the Arnold Schwarzenegger of noise…

To claim this as atmospheric ambient might be a slight hint of comedic humor, but to me it’s more like going to the gym and seeing all these hardened people working their muscles as some kind of self inflected pain, to make them feel good & make up for the hours they had been stuck to an office chair. This amount of live noise is a bit like that; something that you do and go for, like hitting yourself with a bunch of stinging nettles and somehow gets you to feel good somehow after it.. perhaps unleashing some cropped aggression and now thanks to self inflicting these noises by God Pussy or Verjault you can beat yourself up without leaving you itchy with a incoherent rash…
