Gypsyhawk is summed up to be four metal dudes revisiting and electrifying sounds of bullshit-free 70s rock. Despite the grandeur of this task, these guys have adopted a lets-have-a-good-time mentality, and refuse to take themselves too seriously, and focus primarily on putting on a good show that'll have the audience as happy as they are. Similarly, Black Pussy – a sex-charged, 70s-inspired rock n roll band – blasts their classic, upbeat, and relentlessly hooky tracks through massive, vintage 44 speakers. Black Pussy seduces just about anyone with their heavy, bluesy sound, so hide your daughters, because they're coming to town.
