8/10 Brian Staff review, 13 March 2008
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 where people dressed as the banana splits throw themselves into lakes on an imitation galleon is usually pretty hard to source in a world where The Feeling & Editors rule the airwaves. Thank fuck for the bubblegum punk whirlwind that is Be Your Own Pet!! A girl fronted crew who are the audio version of a food fight at a day-glo ice rink, fizzing hardcore punka pop rawk that blends the full throttle assault of The Stooges & Melt Banana with spots of early Blondie (circa 'Detroit 442') , and the primal rasp of Patti Smith & Joan Jett. Anyone that likes their music infused with a celebration of young life, sporting titles such as 'Zombie Graveyard party!' & 'Blow Yr Mind' is gonna lap up this snaking tornado of exuberence that is sophomore album 'Get Awkward'. Just when one song stalls after a couple of minutes you get another hyper burst of maxed to 11 buzzsaw joy. It's probably a bit dumb if you're contemplating a new Band of Horses album or whatever but these true practitioners of the Sonic Youth manifesto are a pleasure to behold & this second long player finds them in fine fettle!
