About Puscifer
Welcome to Puscifer, my creative subconscious. Welcome to the party that goes on in my head 24 hours a day. Welcome to my island of misfit ideas. The space where my Id, Ego, and Anima all come together to exchange cookie recipes. This is a space without any hard edges. It's a space with no clear or discernable goals. CHECK YOUR OVER INFLATED EXPECTATIONS AT THE DOOR. Cuz this is simply a playground for the various voices in my head. Come play with us.


Background

Puscifer's original name was Umlaut, "a premiere improvisational hardcore band."[2] The name "Puscifer" was first publicized as a fictional band in the first episode of Mr. Show, including Keenan and Adam Jones as members. Jones is not associated with Puscifer otherwise, although artwork by Jones has been featured on Puscifer apparel (the "Your Mom's a Bitch" shirt, specifically).

Puscifer is "as much a clothing line as it is a band," with the clothing items produced in limited numbers. Keenan collaborated on a leather jacket with Paul Frank.[2]

Keenan describes Puscifer as "simply a playground for the various voices in my head," "a space with no clear or discernible goals," and "where my Id, Ego, and Anima all come together to exchange cookie recipes."[3]

Puscifer has no current plans to tour, though Keenan is working on short films with Ford Englerth and Jeffrey Brooks from Red Rock Entertainment Development that could be shown on a tour. These shorts are done in a similar manner to that of Mr. Show and Tom Waits' Big Time.[2]

On April 10, 2007, Keenan posted on the official website that a release may be aimed for mid-October.[4] A newer post on June 25, 2007 states that Joe Barresi mixed the first song, which will have a music video, as well as an alternate version of "Cuntry Boner", which will likely be released as a CD single with bonus tracks. Further mixing will be done by Keenan and Alan Moulder by August.[5]

On July 31st, Keenan announced that the album would be titled "V" is for Vagina. On Aug 9, Keenan announced the first single would be "Queen B" with a video released in late September [1].

On October 1, "Queen B" appeared on the podcast on puscifer.com. This was followed by the podcast release of "Trekka" on October 7.

The album was released on October 30 and debuted at number 1 on the Billboard Indie Chart.

[edit] Members

According to Keenan's MySpace page, the band members include "Maynard James Keenan and a revolving door of talented people. The current list of guest musicians... Renholdėr (Danny Lohner), Milla Jovovich, Lisa Germano, Josh Eustis, Satan, and more...". Keenan has worked on Puscifer material most recently with Lustmord, Jonny Polonski, Tim Alexander, Tim Commerford, Brad Wilk, Ainjel Emme, Josh Eustis of Black Light Burns & Telefon Tel Aviv, Gil Sharone, and Trey Gunn among others.[6][7]
