I effin' love the Pipettes. They are island of unpretentious, fresh pop in a sea of same-y indie-bands-with-boys. I've blogged about them before, but that's no reason not to do it again. The band are now signed to the wonderful Memphis Industries, a lovely independent label with independent ideas and truly original bands. They put out their first proper single, Dirty Mind in November and it just missed the Top 40. They are releasing the equally fantastic Your Kisses Are Wasted On Me on 27th March on two vinyls and a CD, and you'd be a fool not to go for the ALL 3 for £5 offer at recordstore.co.uk. The girls made no small point of telling the crowd at (fucking awful, worst club in London) Frog last night about their upcoming release and their dreams of Top 40 success. This is the kind of music that should be on Top of the Pops, not Chico, not James Blunt, not the Arctic Monkeys. If only they would come to Germany soon to give the German indie crowd a break from the tired but abonible nu-Brit-pop monster of the FutureArcticMaximoChief-fi Party. If you still aren't convinced that there is a place for the Pipettes in your record collection, have flick on to their MySpace page and try and not sway/flail/do the mashed potato to those tunes.
