Quintron and Miss Pussycat have been making genre-defying noise and hard rocking dance music in New Orleans for over fifteen years. The majority of their 14 full-length albums have the psychedelic soul of traditional New Orleans party music filtered through a tough distorted Hammond B-3 and a cache of self- made electronic instruments.
MISS PUSSYCAT plays maracas and sings, as well as entertaining all age groups with her highly amusing Technicolor puppet shows.

Hers are complex puppet shows beautifully crafted for success in intimate venues of late night drinking and dancing: tactile, idiosyncratic characters, pithy dialogue, electronically pixilated soundtracks, and trippy black light effects create a visual and engaging overture/finale to Quintron and Miss Pussycat’s music sets. Quintron aids in puppet manipulation and voicing. Miss Pussycat, in turn, sings lead and back-up and plays maracas during Quintron’s performances.

Quintron has released strange soundscapes based on inner-city field recordings of frogs and neighborhood ambiance as well as holing himself up in THE NEW ORLEANS MUSEUM OF ART for three months to create the epic “Sucre Du Sauvage” (Goner, 2011). In addition to his own recordings, Quintron has played organ on a number of other records, most notably THE OBLIVIONS “9 Songs” and STEVE RILEY AND THE MAMOU PLAYBOYS “Grand Isle” which was nominated for a Grammy in 2012 and featured the Quintron penned song “Chatterbox”. Most recently Quintron has been releasing albums under the name “WEATHER WARLOCK”, a project which features his mammoth weather controlled analog synthesizer. He and Miss Pussycat were the chosen to be resident artists at the ROBERT RAUSCHENBERG FOUNDATION and it was there that he conceived and completed that project while Miss Pussycat perfected the art of the inflatable puppet theater.

The Quintron / Miss Pussycat experience is one of barely controlled electronic chaos, “Swamp-Tech” dance beats, small explosions, incredible clothes, and entertaining puppet stories. You can see them perform regularly at the Spellcaster Lodge in New Orleans, Louisiana or on one of their many tours around the world. This act somehow has equal relevance in sleazy nightclubs, pizza restaurants, and university lecture halls.

“The Puppet Worlds of Miss Pussycat” has been displayed at The Ogden Museum of Southern Art and the Galveston Art Center. Fall 2019 will see the exhibit travel in Memphis TN in conjunction with Goner Fest 16.

Quintron is set to release an instrumental Mellotron EP in Fall 2019 on esteemed Florida label, TOTAL PUNK. A new Q and P full length is in the works and should see release in 2020.

The AV Club premieres Quintron & Miss Pussycat’s new video “I Hear Voices” + tour dates
The AV Club

Quintron And Miss Pussycat exemplify the best of modern New Orleans rock. An eccentric and arty twist on swamp rock, the group mixes synthesizer sounds with modern science as Quintron messes with instruments of his own creation. His latest analog synth invention features prominently in his band the Weather Warlock, a term that’s apt considering the machine is controlled by weather patterns. Below, The A.V. Club has the premiere of the new video for “I Hear Voices.” Though it’s an unreleased jam, the tune is somewhat similar to “Death In Space” from Quintron’s latest record, Spellcaster II: Death In Space. As weird as everything about Quintron suggestions, the clip for “I Hear Voices” blends glitchy VHS images with some heavy guitar playing from Eyehategod’s Aaron Hill.

Brooklyn Vegan shares new label Terror Vision releasing films on VHS; includes puppet movie by Quintron & Miss Pussycat
Brooklyn Vegan

Cassettes are hip and vinyl sales are on the rise, so it shouldn’t be too surprising that a record label has spun off a new company that will release obscure soundtracks on vinyl, and… movies on VHS. That would be Terror Vision which was started by Ryan Graveface of Black Moth Super Rainbow and Graveface Records. There will also be a video rental store as part of the Graveface Records & Curiosities shop in Savannah, GA.

Entertainment Weekly Premieres New Quintron & Miss Pussycat “Do The Raid” Video!
Entertainment Weekly

Quintron and Missy Pussycat’s “Do The Raid” is something that would belong right next to “Time Warp” in Rocky Horror Picture Show, but it has more distortion—and plenty of puppets. For over a decade, the New Orleans-based duo have been making psych-heavy rock that’s easy to dance to: In the “Do The Raid” video, Miss Pussycat bops around with her maracas as Quintron flops his hair around to the beat of the music, which sounds a lot like what LCD System was aiming for with 2007’s “Watch the Tapes.”
The puppets, though, who Miss Pussycat makes and frequently performs with, are the video’s real stars. Most are unidentifiable shapes like the one-eyed blob, but there is one adorable panda wearing a bow-tie—no matter how cute they are though, they’re all pretty unruly: The video ends with one of the more colorful puppets setting some sticks of dynamite off.

Pitchfork Highlights Quintron’s Spellcaster II LP in Shake Appeal!
Pitchfork

His latest LP shows an artist doing a lot more than just making novelty music. “Something Is Wrong With Jim Bob” is 90 seconds of arid, instrumental guitar. “Fatal Harmonic” is a track by the Weather Warlock, his project featuring a device that’s controlled by the elements (an undeniable highlight at Gonerfest). The best part of the album by a mile is “Do the Raid”, which is probably the best Quintron and Miss Pussycat song of the past decade. It’s a sneering track where they stare down a young student and say, “Your parents are dumb, kid, do the fuckin’ math.”
Truly, an anthem for elementary school teachers who no longer give a fuck.
