Pussyliquor, who are possibly the best-named feminist punk band yet seen, are a potent anti-bullshit unit from Brighton, and this sharp little 7” makes for a strong entrypoint. 7-inch Wonder features four gnarly tracks, including the post-one-night-stand how that is ‘Get Out’. 7” EP from the Revulva label.

So redolent of early the Slits that even the singer is called Ari, this Brighton 5 piece release a four track EP of snot-nosed feminist punk rock. They can barely keep control of their instruments but this adds to the feeling of excitement that surrounds their music. 'Get Out' is a hungover rant full of witty lyrical barbs culminating in a chorus that is both singalong and rather menacing. In the spirit of the likes of L7 these are ladies behaving abominably and enjoying every second.
On the flip they prove they have a softer side by miaowing like cats before breaking into a hardcore racket something like Babes in Toyland on a particularly pissed off day. In fact I'm rather scared of them and am now hiding behind the settee until they stop.
7/10 The Doc Customer review, 26th January 2018
I'm fairly sure that thirty-something males with wives and two children aren't really the target audience for this spiky little single, but I bought it just the same. I'm all in favour of feminism, providing it means men and women working together to find solutions to genre inequality rather than me having to apologise for having a dick, but that's by the by. I quite enjoyed this record, anyway. Puts me in mind of a few bands from my yoof - especially Daisy Chainsaw and the wonderful Bikini Kill.
If you can call either of those bands to mind, you'll have a fair idea what to expect from this. It'll be interesting to see whether or not they can sustain their own brand of super-pissed, confrontational, female-empowering punk over a longer period like Kathleen Hannas superb outfit did all those years ago, but as an opening broadside this is a pretty good start.
