Be Your Own Pet – Be Your Own Pet

Be Your Own Pet

Be Your Own Pet is a spastic little foursome straight outta music city, Nashville represent! They love Iggy and the Stooges, caffeine, spicy food, T-Rex, and playing a fast, “uptight fun” style of punk rock for twenty-somethings with ADD. They hate having asthma, yep all four have it, they hate flat tires, runny eggs, and prefer vinyl to CD.

After smashing there way through 15 minute sets at the CMJ festival in 2004 and SXSW in 2005, and releasing a single on Rough Trade UK, they received a call from a guy named Thurston Moore, who wanted to put their first record out on his label Ecstatic Peace (Universal). Voila, here you have it, a 15 song romp, full of one and two minute gems, guaranteed to have your forehead sweating and your arse gyrating, and wondering why there aren’t more basement rock parties anymore.
