Quintron and Miss Pussycat Cancel North American Tour Dates

Due to situations beyond their control involving a family emergency at home, Quintron and Miss Pussycat have been forced to cancel their upcoming North American tour dates, beginning with their May 23rd show in Savannah, GA (the band will be performing the first two shows scheduled in Birmingham and Atlanta).

Quintron and Miss Pussycat would like to thank everyone who has supported their new album, "Sucre Du Sauvage," especially the individuals at Goner Records, and hope to be able to reschedule all dates as soon as possible.

We thank you for your patience and understanding, and hope to be able to provide more information shortly.

About Quintron:
Quintron has been making genre-defying noise and "Swamp-Tech" dance music in New Orleans for over fifteen years. The majority of his 12 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. Quintron regards his most significant creation to be his patented instrument called the DRUM BUDDY, a light activated analog synthesizer that creates murky, low-fidelity, rhythmic patterns. Notable DRUM BUDDY clients include performers Nels Cline of Wilco, Laurie Anderson, Fred Armisen, and DJ Mr. Dibbs.

About Miss Pussycat:
Miss Pussycat is a New Orleans based photographer and puppeteer who has toured the world with Quintron for the past 15 year conducting puppet shows in rock clubs and at international festivals. Her three full-length movies, North Pole Nutrias (2002), Electric Swamp (2005), and most recently Trixie and The Treetrunks (commissioned by VBS TV in 2007), have featured the voices of numerous New Orleans musical, political, and literary celebrities. In addition to her full length puppet movies she has also worked on several puppet-cast music videos and will definitely be creating one or two for "SUCRE DU SAUVAGE"!

What the press is saying about "Sucre Du Sauvage"

"...Quintron turns all of New Orleans into a musical instrument." - Pitchfork

"...his most outlandish effort to date." - The LA Times

"One-man whompin’ stompin’ electro-bayou band." - CMJ

"Studios are for suckers." - Brooklynvegan

"...infectious near-novelty songs where an organ and xylophone recall the sort of happy music that those middle-school kids might love, but the hooks aim for adult ears." - MTV Hive

"Continuing to defy categorization... Sauvage plays out like one part live album, one part performance-art exhibition piece and... well, one part indefinable. It is Quintron after all." - Aquarium Drunkard

"...a declaration of independence by Quintron and Miss Pussycat on behalf of the town that nurtures and celebrates them." - Dusted

"...who said museums have to be boring?" - Consequence of Sound

"New Orleans' own originator of "swamp tech" and inventor of the Drum Buddy, Quintron, has never been one shy of trying new ideas. Case in point, his forthcoming LP for Memphis' Goner imprint." - XLR8R
