Foxxxy Cougars – Go Funk Yourself

On their first record in six years, the trio of elderly women comprising  the Foxxxy Cougars continue to embarrass themselves. On their 1991 debut Young Meat, their shtick was cute; sexy women in their 50s singing about young men they desired and their numerous sexual conquests. But after 25 years and 13 albums the novelty has worn off.

The only thing listenable here is “James Jones,” a funky, danceable ode to an unattainable teen neighbor known for mowing the lawn with his shirt off. “On the Prowl,” burns slow with raspy, incoherent vocals, while “Still Young Down There” made me simultaneously want to vomit and cut my ears off to stop the diarrhea-like sounds coming from the speakers.

With any luck Go Funk Yourself will be the last Foxxxy Cougars recording and they’ll be forcibly moved to an assisted living facility where they’ll live out the rest of their days.

Rating: 2 out of 12 cans of PBR!

About Ben Allen

Our music editor Ben Allen was born one stormy evening in a quaint Northern California coastal village. Upon birth he was immediately exposed to the soothing analog sounds of artists such as Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles, Paul Simon, Captain Beefheart and Santana. As the lad grew, so did his appreciation for an assortment of abrasive hard rock. A pubescent flirtation with butt metal was shattered in the early 1990’s by exposure to Nirvana and other so-called “Alternative” bands. While in college, our protagonist became a DJ on a local station, and began work as a freelance music journalist. During this period he became entranced with artists such as Tortoise, Slint, Modest Mouse, Guided By Voices and Pavement. Currently Allen resides in Arcata, CA where he continues to obsess and salivate over new recordings by his favorite artists. He works with music industry people to ensure that Savage Henry’s contributors receive music and other promotional materials. He also writes a silly monthly list titled “Ben’s 10.”
