Be Your Own Pet
Food Fight!

When Brian played one of the Be Your Own Pet singles yesterday I had a huge grin on my face. I dont know what to say that he hasn't already said other than the other 7" they have out this week is called 'Food Fight' and it is also a head rinsing punk rock track. Short but sweet and the dude on the cover looks well scary. You can see why Thurst...view item »

Be Your Own Pet
Super Soaked

My single of the week would just have to be 'Super Soaked' by the increasingly unhinged Be Your Own Pet. Kind of cynically overlooked by many a couple of years ago due to a bit of a junior Yeah Yeah Yeahs vibe emanating from this quartet, the stage is now, however, set for them to destroy 2008. It's an adrenalised, amped up punk racket business tha...view item »

Be Your Own Pet
Black Hole

I'm going to review one of these Be Your Own Pet 7"s 'Black Hole' at 33rpm as opposed to the recommended 45rpm. It sounds like some gutter garage band, nice and heavy with bits of a Killdozer thing happening... Okay I'll do it at 45 then. It's a catchy one this, immediately it seeps into your head and has you twitching. It's proper good punky ...view item »

Be Your Own Pet
The Kelly Affair

More fun with Be You Own Pet. The 4th 7" in the series is here (The Kelly Affair) and it's a tumbling barrage of fun in your ear/ ears. I've enjoyed all 4 of these singles.. I was wondering why they'd pressed 4 7" singles but listening to them they make perfect short bursts of energy which are perfectly suited to the 7" format. All a...view item »

Be Your Own Pet
Get Awkward

I sometimes feel like i'm wasting my life away because i've never had the thrill of being in a band. Not many groups make me check for grey hairs to be honest. Not these days when energy, colour, raucousness & pure adrenalin are more often found on kids TV than on the sweaty stages of venues around the globe. A musical equivalent of those shows...view item »

Be Your Own Pet
Let's Get Sandy

Always been a bit suspish of Be Your Own Pet. Too much Yeah Yeah Yeah's too soon after that band have taken a hiatus. But 'Let's Get Sandy' is equal parts Karen O Melted into a thrash Banana smoothie. It lasts a minute & is possibly one of the most fun records XL has ever released after Prodigy'...view item »

Be Your Own Pet
Fire Department

Quite like Be Your Own Pet but just can't shake the idea of them just licking shit off Karen O's heels for nickels. There's a fiery energy & fine understanding of the dynamics of punchy, punky guitar rock but the sound is just to derivative to truly stand on It's own. See also Sleater-Kinney's more recent stuff. I suppose the...view item »

Be Your Own Pet
Adventure/ Ouch (demo)

We all kind of like Be Your Own Pet here. They create about as much fun as you can fit in 2 minutes as physically possible without using microwaves, rubber gloves or your penis (if you've got one). It's called Adventure and the cover has 'em all dressed up all deadly and adventuring (entertaining) as is the CD disc itself which is a pla...view item »
