Liner notes by Alan Licht

Editions Mego is happy to announce a vinyl reissue of the long out of print and impossibly rare final Harry Pussy album, the monumental ‘Lets Build A Pussy’.
Originally released in 1998 after the band broke up, this has always been an elusive release. “You cannot buy this anywhere and you will never find one!!!”, was what one writer exclaimed. Consisting of an hour long piece of Bill Orcutt time-stretching a second of Adris Hoyos’ voice into a slow shifting drone. A piece of music you will love or hate, with not much for anything in between.
As Alan Licht states in his liner notes:
“Let’s Build A Pussy is a requiem, of sorts; Adris’ opening one-second vocal noise has been variously termed a “yelp” or a “shout” but I prefer to think of it as Bill and Adris’ mutual last gasp, a band death rattle. Put in a computer program, Adris’ protracted utterance becomes, almost literally, “the ghost in the machine”—Let’s Build is something of a late 90s audio inheritor of 19th century spirit photography. Paradoxically functioning as both Harry Pussy’s curtain call and final act, Let’s Build A Pussy is an altogether unique past-tense statement from a band whose members were not immediately going on to solo careers or to other bands.”
