Two hits and ten pieces of junk [Sep. 21st, 2006|01:37 pm]
soda pop rip off


[music |The Shirelles- Will you still love me tomorrow?]

The Pipettes/ 60s girl-pop revival. The effect of post-spicegirls "girl power" pop.

The Pipettes- ABC

The Pipettes- Your Kisses

The Pipettes- I love you

A rejuvination of the 60s/70s girl-pop group sensation/ early motown. For the original Pipettes, download The Shangri-Las, The Shirelles, The Ronettes, The Crystals or for kind-of similar stuff, but better, look for Wanda Jackson. Phil Spector was pretty much the founder of the good 60s girl-pop. he also produced Robson and Jerome, The Ramones and worked with the Beatles, plus being an inspiration for shoegazing music, which even the least pretentious of us most probably loves.

They're originally from Brighton. I met a member (they all pretty much look the same to me- all i really see is polka dot dress and good hair) of the Pipettes once in a chicken shop on charing cross road in london at about four in the morning with cyanidetongueand others. We talked about shit clubs and chicken bugers, exact conversations i fail to remember but i remember we'd had a more fun night that she had. good times.

Wanda Jackson- Walk with me

I dont like the pippettes. My frend went to Art college with them which is in fact awful and I shouldn't have typed it. But I dont think theyre music is fun and its definately not good. I cant tell if it's a joke or not, I am probably missing the point. I saw them play in May and they werent entertaining I guess, but gawd does it wear thin quickly. The Shangri-Las are great maybe because that was then and this is now.
It disturbed me to find out one of them speaks Cornish and Welsh and represented CORNWALL in the alternative Eurovision song contest. I dont get Cornish independence.

i only really wrote that because someone on my friends list wanted some pipettes mp3s. The liked the pipettes a couple of months ago (i can't believe i just typed that). but they were never WOW. they were just "hm, ok".
I do love the Shangri-Las though, i know what you mean. Gah, i really would like to see you soon. When are you about next? come to afterskool on the 5th, if not before then...? for birthday celebrating.x
