If Thor’s Hammer of the Gods from “Immigrant Song” landed in the hands of four wise, willful, and wild women? Well, it would sound something like Thunderpussy. The quartet—Molly Sides [vocals], Whitney Petty [guitar], Leah Julius [bass], and Ruby Dunphy [drums]—do the most rock ‘n’ roll thing possible and quite literally fuck up every rock ‘n’ roll stereotype you know to be true, piercing the halls of Valhalla in the process.

Playboy Manbaby
Playboy Manbaby is a 6-piece spaz-punk band from Phoenix AZ formed in 2012 from the never-cool comic wit of local DIY music magnate and visual artist Robbie Pfeffer (vocals), backed by the smoking-hot instrumental work of Chris Hudson (bass), TJ Frida (guitar), David Cosme (trumpet), Chad Dennis (drums), and Austin Rickert (sax).

As described by Phoenix New Times, Playboy Manbaby is "premised on shameless performance spectacle and an outrageous underdog mentality. Musically, the band combines snidely-screamed vocals, distorted garage guitar, and waist-loosening bass with onstage theatrics, making them one of the most cultishly appreciated live acts in the all-ages Phoenix circuit."

Playboy Manbaby's first three albums were put out on the band's own Rubber Brother Records imprint, primarily on cassette. Their pinnacle 2017 album, Don't Let It Be, was originally released on cassette by Lollipop Records early that year but is now enjoying a rebirth on gorgeous limited-run white 12" vinyl - including a bonus lyric sheet with artwork by the band - via new Phoenix label Dirty Water Records USA. The first single, "You Can Be A Facist Too," was released during the 2016 US presidential election, garnering the band instant popularity and inclusion in The Village Voice 's oficial anti-Trump playlist.

Having toured the US extensively and shared stages with many top national acts, Playboy Manbaby is ready to take its post-funk chaos overseas in 2018.
