We Are The Pipettes

The twists and turns, the backward and forward movement of music; a shout out to Phil Spector as the teen tycoon of rock and a thumbs down to the Beatles..

It’s the Pipettes.

The only way I can describe it is as a modernized, 60s throw-back-bring forward, happy, dance music.

Becki, Rose and Gwenno make up the all girl Pipettes trio backed by the all male troupe, The Cassettes.

Thier album We Are The Pipettes contains their Top 40 hit Pull Shapes. It’s a super fun song baby, but the video MUST be seen at least once to really get the vibe. Taking the Spector model and twisting it with time makes for a unique sound. Take a look at the video on YouTube and dance along.

Richard Rothstein’s blog post has the best quote:

If you haven’t discovered the Pipettes, you’re in for a vaginatastic time! Even if you’re not a lesbian.

The song is of course part of the AllFunMusik lineup and, I think the Pipettes will be a fixture for quite some time.
