Be Your Own Pet- Let's Gt Sandy (Big Problem) (XL recordings)
...can't see BYOP surviving the Warhol-prescribed 15-minute shelf-life
When a band is constantly referred to as 'the lot with the hot, blonde nineteen year-old vocalist' it's usually a striking sign that the essentials might not be able to back up the flawless rear of the teenaged vocalist. Be Your Own Pet is one such case, and although the Nashville quintet have been generating quite a hype over the last year their debut fails to impress as it appears like as patchwork Yeah Yeah Yeahs in a grind/punk costume that clocks in at just over a minute. Ambitious? Nope, I can't see BYOP surviving the Warhol-prescribed 15-minute shelf-life.
