Do you like Black Pussy?


Recommended Posts

I can't say I've ever heard their music but they do seem to engender a lot of angst among the progressive set. The band has had concert venues cancelled in Calgary and Regina because of progressive outrage at their name. You'd think it would be conservatives, but apparently not.

And I think the hypocrisy of the people fuming over the name is pretty obvious from one comment made. I mean, if Rotting Christ is okay for a name what isn't?

“Goatwhore, Aborted, Rotting Christ, Dying Fetus …. just a short list of bands I have personally seen at The Exchange that have offensive names that are much less tongue-in-cheek than Black Pussy,” wrote Kurtis Offet. “Glad I now live in Calgary where a much loved venue decided to let people decide for themselves whether or not to attend a show they deem “offensive.”

And the Dayglos...Mothers Against Obscene album covers.

My favorite show-shut-down was still an RCMP officer who thought the crowd would part for him in the mosh pit....wrong. Probably still looking for his hat.

Argus hit on something interesting, How both conservatives and progressives can be outraged/offended and then try to ban things, like bands. Remember Marilyn Manson being banned in places due to Christian conservative outrage.

Banning is censorship.

There was controversy on a couple young girls some years back. Prussian Blue. The name may not be offensive, but their material was all right wing , white supremacist crap.

I used to listen to him a lot, and loved the way he did things to shake up the music industry and how it's viewed by the media and such. He's a pretty smart guy.

I'm not offended by any band name. It seems to me that if they are trying to be offensive, why accommodate the little twits, and if they are not, why be offended?

I'm not offended by any band name because it's rock n roll and it's awesome. Like people being offended by Elvis shaking his hips on Ed Sullivan. Let people do their art.
