Ninth Ward organist Mr. Quintron appeared Wednesday night on A.J. "The Boudin Man" Rodrigue's WWOZ radio show to preview some tracks from the upcoming Quintron and Miss Pussycat album Too Thirsty 4 Love, due out October 14 from the Memphis indie label Goner Records.
"It's a leak," he told listeners, pointing out that the last New Orleans artist to leak songs from an upcoming release wound up with the best-selling album in recent history. The album is more of the same swirling space gospel and sweaty, danceable organ-rock Q-and-P fans know and love, with more songwriting from Miss P this time around - the puppeteer penned a techno-beat commentary on anti-graffitti vigilante Fred Radtke, called "Gray Ghost."
Too Thirsty 4 Love hits the streets for real on October 14, with a major wingding of a release party planned for Halloween night at One Eyed Jacks. Fans can get a sneak live preview this coming Monday night, though, at Spellcaster Lodge on St. Claude Avenue, during Quintron's birthday show. P and Q play at 1 a.m. following a lineup of local rock and metal oddities Peppermint Pony and Tire Fire, plus the Oakland punk-tronica act Hawnay Troof.
