Sassy Kraimspri - The Pussy Magnet EPI don’t know about you but I don’t want my pop stars to be saccharine-laced, rent-a-hit identikit no marks. I want verve, panache and, yeah, at least a little bit of dirt under the metaphoric fingernails. Thank Heaven, then, for the sonic delights that are Sassy Kraimspri. I’ve had the Norwegian band’s “Pussy Magnet EP” for a while now- only laziness and senility on my part not stopping me getting around to reviewing it.

So here we are. And here they are. Three tracks- ten minutes long. No corners cut, no quarter given. Razor sharp and as effective as that hangover Red Bull. You got it: Pussy Magnet is a cracker.

Sassy Kraimspri are an effervescent live act with a dirty, sleazy sensibility running through their punky aesthetic that will give any L7, Runaways or Ramones fans plenty to cheer about and plenty to be impressed by- there’s a strong songwriting ability here that’s both uncompromising and admirable. The “Pussy Magnet EP” has a raw production that, whilst not quite capturing the full energy of their live set is a great introduction to what this band are about.

‘Pussy Magnet’ has a delicious pop punk riff undercurrent overlaid by Sassy‘s infectious vocals and ‘Oh My’ will have you grinning inanely: its nothing less than seriously rockin’ stuff. You don’t need anything else. ‘Hit’, another three minute gem has, ahem, hit written all over it.

Sassy Kraimspri are full of energy, attitude and chutzpah. The “Pussy Magnet EP” is a thrilling gem of a release that will have you grinning ear to ear- after Sassy have given you a Chelsea smile of course. There’s an age old saying of being careful about what you wish for as you just might get it. I wished for a pop-punk gem: yep, got it in one.
