Josie Cotton is back with “Pussycat Babylon” and, in her words, it is a journey into “electro-pop and public nudity.”
Known for her hits “Johnny Are You Queer?” and “He Could Be the One” which were featured in the 1983 movie “Valley Girl.” She also enjoyed recent success with her release of “Ukranian Cowboy.”
About the new album, Cotton says it bares all: “I reveal everything on this record, stripped to the bone, curled up in the fetal position. I eat my own arm.”
Produced on Cotton’s record label Kitten Robot, “Pussycat Robot” is energetic and catchy with songs like “Calling All Girls” and “Recipe for Disaster.”
“Pussycat Babylon” is out today and Cotton plans to tour this fall to promote it. The tour includes a stop at the Greek on September 3rd, and there is a special New Jersey show that will include a screening of “Valley Girl.” The movie with Nicolas Cage helped make Cotton world famous and is a wonderful time capsule of all things ‘80s.
Get your copy of “Pussycat Babylon” today and make plans to see Cotton on the road starting next month. After all, the New York Times calls Cotton “Cheerfully provocative.” While the eternal John Waters says she’s “Part Shangri-Las, part Rachel Sweet, the all-original Josie has long been a favorite hipster vocalist of mine ever since I took personally her nasally joyous anthem “Johnny, Are You Queer?”
