Biography[edit]

Dreadlock Pussy was started in August 1997, with the intention of writing good songs in a degrading music business. Four months after their start, their first show followed. A long list of gigs in their own state followed soon after. The first album Sharp Instead, independently produced, was released in 1999. Later that year, the band was signed by the Dutch record label Seamiew Records and booker Mojo. Their first show with Mojo was as support act for the American band Machine Head in Tilburg's 013.

In 2000 guitarist Guz (Zjon Gijsen) left the band and was replaced by Punto (Ferry Duijsens). In 2004 drummer Twixy (Twan Bakker) left the band and was replaced by Jos Roossen.

The Effenaar in Eindhoven was the stage of their last performance in May 2006, thus ending nine years of Dreadlock Pussy.
