The pipettes-Pull Shape

This week's theme is dedicated to the women who are carrying that 60's sound into the future.

Hailing from Brighton UK, The Pipettes envoke the spirit of many of the girl groups from the early 60's like The Shangri-las, The Ronettes, The Honeys, The Crystals and the Chiffons. The brain child of singer/song writer/producer Robert "Monster Bobby" Barry, who's attempt to bring back that Phil Spector sound was right-on. The Pipettes had more membership overturn in the last 2 years than any sound that works this well together should. Here is the second (and longest lasting) incarnation with Gwenno, RiotBecki and Rosay.

If this video looks familiar to you, than you may need to think back to The Carrie Nations in Beyon the Valley of the Dolls. Of course, these songs are nothing alike.
