MISS PUSSYCAT: The Happy Castle of Goblinburg: 7”

Feb 06, 2020

This appears to be a recording of a ten-minute puppet show that I was lucky enough to watch on Miss Pussycat’s internet page. It tells the story of Princess Diamond Sky Riverdale who is just trying to find a damn place to live! The whole thing is vaguely disturbing and unnerving (which I think is the point), juxtaposing the seemingly unthreatening methods of children’s theater and instruments with the absolutely crushing process of finding housing in this country. By the end, I found that I really enjoyed this project because it did something I’ve always felt like punk does well: talks about real shit without illusion and in ways that help folks to understand instead of shaming them into political positions. –Theresa W.
