Miami's eclectic, schizophrenic contributions to musical

history run the full color spectrum and are recently being documented by our sister publication Miami New Times. From 2 Live Crew to the Miami Sound Machine to Phoenicia

to the Laundry Room Squelchers, our identity as a geographically isolated and

completely mentally fucked city is special. No other group personified this dementia better than 1990s act Harry Pussy.

Beginning in 1992, main members Adris Hoyos (drums, vocals) and Bill Orcutt (guitar) crafted insane, complex compositions that came off sounding like a harrowing mess to any listener not willing to commit to the insanity. You had to fully give yourself to the hysteria: The sounds emanating from Hoyos' frenetic vocal and drum assaults (sometimes playful, sometimes destructive) and Orcutt's guitar work that barreled through the room like a freight train of desire, emotion, and unbridled fucking rage that could suddenly and seamlessly transition into soft guitar meanderings from one beat to the next.
