27. MISHKA Dial "M" For Motherfucker
Inspired By: Pussy Galore's Dial "M" For Motherfucker LP (1989)
We could pepper this list with Mishka's reference points, and with a deep appreciation for metal artwork, b-movies and a whole ton of weird stuff, they've put out a crazed body-of-work. The Ian Curtis sweater, 'Westworld' and 'Kill 'Em All' riffing was memorable, but using the art from Pussy Galore's 1989 garage-punk masterpiece 'Dial 'M' For Motherfucker' united Mishka with some other NYC legends. It's not subtle by any means, but it's an offbeat tribute to some superb musicians.
