Ponyboy., a Lawrence two-piece grunge act, releases their new record, Pussy Killer. Following their manifesto, wherein they set out "to offend the easily offended while keeping the true emotional nature of their music (human vulnerability) buried by crass surface, layers of noise, and profane imagery," Pussy Killer is a "forty-minute slugfest concerning the strange case of 'Canadian Cannibal' Luke Magnotta and the impact sensationalized violent crime has on our culture."
Pussy Killer is bassist Charles S. McVey's attempt to "remove the gore but leave the confusion, disillusionment, and horror in place." It's an uncomfortable listen, and the dirge-like finale, "1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick," is entirely unsettling.
