Quintron has been making genre-defying noise and "Swamp-Tech" dance music in New Orleans for over fifteen years. The majority of his ten full-length albums have the psychedelic soul of New Orleans garage R&B filtered through a tough distorted Hammond B-3 and a cache of self-made electronic instruments. He has also released strange soundscapes based on inner-city field recordings of frogs and neighborhood ambiance. Miss Pussycat, otherwise known as Panacea Theriac, is a New Orleans based puppeteer. Born in Antlers, Oklahoma, she began learning puppetry at the Christian Puppet Youth Ministry at the First Baptist Church of Antlers. She began her professional career in New Orleans and assisted in founding the influential night club Pussycat Caverns. For the past fifteen years she has traveled internationally conducting puppet shows in rock clubs and at international festivals. The Quintron and Miss Pussycat live show is one of barely controlled electronic chaos, "Swamp-Tech" dance beats, small explosions, clothes, and entertaining puppet stories.

After recording their first album with Greg Cartwright and gaining accolades from the editor of CMJ (“Record of the Year” and all that) Goodnight Loving could’ve sought out another “name” producer, jumped ship to a more well known label and pander to the types that think bands like the Old 97’s embody some spirit of “real music” (when in reality there not much more than a Replacements tribute band really but “Ooohhh. Did you hear that southern rock opera they did?” Yeah. I did. The Supersuckers were really into Skynyrd but they were even smart enough not to make a whole fucking album about the plane crash) and run the risk of losing some of the mojo that made their first album stand out and shine like the chrome in the summer sun. Instead they holed themselves up in a cabin in Crooked Lake, Wisconsin (hence the albums name-though there has been some question on WHICH Crooked Lake this was recorded at-there’s a few inland lakes in the state that bear the name) with a coffee maker, a satchel of green and recording extraordinaire Justin Perkins.

JD, are you at all aware it was the Drive-By Truckers who recorded "Southern Rock Opera," not the Old 97s? Those two bands don't have a lot in common, and that makes you sound like you're not much of an authority on this stuff. You might also want to know The Goodnight Loving have cut two albums and a whole bunch of singles since that one they recorded in a Green Bay cabin. Do your homework.
