Be Your Own Pet - Let's Get Sandy
Chris Yau 23/01/2006
The young critters from Nashville follow up the successes of previous singles “Damn Damn Leash” and “Fire Department” with this frantic, angry battle cry about the difficulties of teenage living .Clocking in at just under a minute (a snappy 59 seconds to be precise), it's a brief reminder of what's installed for us on their soon-to-be-released debut album. The drums crash like thunder, pummelling your ear drums into submission. Vocals are spat out with disgust and a mouthful of bile. Guitars thrash around at a dangerously fast pace. This track follows your typical screamy/sleazy punk by numbers. It's not pushing any musical boundaries but its good none the less. An addictive, loud and brash song. This is what we have come to expect from Be Your Own Pet and they continue to deliver.
