One-half of PussyGutt is a member of theBWfamily. You'd think it might be tough to place this particular backhanded compliment on one of our own, but we think he'll see it as an honor. And anyone who is willing to have a mostly non-vocal, instrumental drum-and-bass/violin band and name it PussyGutt probably doesn't give a shit what most people think anyway. So congrats, PussyGutt.
