It all began in April of 2011 when, Paul Adragna, a self-taught vocalist and audio student who had been known to dabble in percussion and guitar met a classically trained drummer, Bridget Sheehan, who had been crafting her skill since the early age of 11. Immediately bonding over their love of King Crimson and Led Zeppelin, the duo assembled some old songs Paul had been sitting on. With those songs well underway and a quirky ukulele version of Radiohead’s Creep, the two were faced with the task of finding the perfect guitar and bass players and, of course, naming the band…
“Well… we have 3 songs, Bridget. What should we name the band?”
“Ummmmm… … …Pussy Factory.”
And then the search began. Craigslist ads were combed and they found one that caught their eye: GUITARIST LOOKING TO JOIN BAND. INFLUENCES - MUSE, SYSTEM OF A DOWN, QUEEN, DEEP PURPLE. Done. In August 2012, Konstantin Gurevich joined Pussy Factory. Konstantin had a background of 10 years playing piano as a child and started playing guitar in high school, but didn’t write his first song until he entered his college years when he realized that writing music was what he wanted to do with his life. Once K was made an official band member, it wasn’t long before the trio had another song in the works and they came to the harsh realization that a bass player was required to complete their sound. Luckily, Bridget’s frequent stops at a convenience store made her friendly with a then-20 year old Nathan Sheahan.
Nathan came into the studio and basically tried out, joined, and started writing for the band within one day. He had guitar and 4 years of bass under his belt, production experience, and gig experience. He had a very unique style of playing. And he ultimately defined what Pussy Factory would sound like today. He was the last piece in the puzzle.
The band made their live debut on March 30, 2012 at (the former) Headhunter's Patio in Austin, TX and have continued to gig ferociously ever since with two state tours and several festivals, including SXSW. Now with 70-plus performances and a partnership with rock ‘n’ roll go go troupe, The Hell Katz, Pussy Factory’s performance continues to keep their audience's excitement high and their heads banging with heavy rock, sparks, fire, and girls.
After 4 years of playing shows, writing, recording, producing, having babies, getting married, fighting depression, fighting each other, relocation, and just dealing all the ups and downs of life, on August 22nd the Pussy Factory LP was released. There was a party of epic proportions and the reviews were in; the album rocked. Eleven tracks to chronicle the past 3 years of Pussy Factory; the thoughts, the feelings, the love; it is all there.
