Be Your Own Pet – UK Tour Dates & Debut 45
Nashville, Tennessee, the home of Stetsons, C&W & crying into your beer, now has something far more interesting on offer: Be Your Own Pet.
Jemina Pearl – singing
Jamin Orrall – drumming
Jonas Stein – guitaring
Nathan Vasquez – bassing
Be Your Own Pet make Punk Rock sound easy. They like caffeine, sugar, candy, spicy food, vinyl, XTC, Television, T Rex, tar pits, sea creatures, submarines, bicycles, climbing trees, skateboarding, asthma inhalers, fungi, making stuff up, making ‘the kids’ dance (who’s kids, we’re not sure) & waffle houses (no wonder all their cities fall down the moment a decent wind picks up).
Be Your Own Pet released their stonking debut 45 – “Damn, Damn Leash” (XL Recordings) back in March - & are set to release more records soon & tour the UK in October – supporting (read: blowing off) the ridiculously over-rated Kills.
Get there early – catch BYOP – then fuck off sharpish before The Kills can send you to sleep (read: nod out?). Alternatively, go see one of the shows they’re playing without The Kills – then you don’t have to support anyone’s heroin habit:
