SWEET PUPS: Self-titled: Cassette

As simple as it may sound, you don’t come across too many bands who play some fun punk much like the Go-Go’s did in the ‘80s, but Sweet Pups sure do sound like they’ve been doing it forever. There’s some doo-wop and ‘60s bubblegum pop influence lurking about, and it comes through big time with the soulful vocals provided by ladies who appear to be very comfortable with their singing abilities. The Soviettes go garage? Bow Wow Wow as a real punk band? Three songs is such a tiny morsel to savor. Give us more!
