Be Your Own Pet Let's Get Sandy Single

Youthful exuberance, shocking lyrical dousing, bolting bass lines and crushing percussion are crammed into 59 seconds by a sonorous Nashville quartet, who shudders with intensity and dynamism. Singer Jemina Pearl's lucid shock tactics peer out above the mayhem, as the lyrics are delivered with lurid gusto;
"You take a twelve year old and break his arms twice; We can guarantee that it won't be very nice."
This prelude to their debut album (out on XL Recordings 27/03/06) is a swift celebration of the freedom of the young mind, soul and musical dexterity.
