the pipettes - pull shapes

In an attempt to prove I actually listen to music performed in the current century, I present the Pipettes. I am so be-grooved.

Of course, their sound purposely imitates the girl groups who were fading from sight during the Nixon presidency and the video is a an homage to Russ Meyer from the same vintage, but I love it. It has what sounds like a Hammond Organ line in it. What's not to love?


  1. I've been enjoying your snarky banter on Fabulon and thought I'd stop by and say Hello. by the way, I so adore averything on your reading list. The Lucia books! Barbara Pym. Among my favorite books ever. If you read poetry, you might like Philip Larkin, who was a friend of Barbara Pym's.

    By the way, wouldn't "Snarky Banter" be a great name for a character in a novel?

  4. I have a friend (jasonspaceman) who's constantly trying to shove these bitches down my throat! Of course, I'm always trying to get him to love Mari Wilson, who did much the same thing 25 years ago.

    Really, it is a fun video, and I'll probably post it at my place soon enough!

  5. wonderful video.
    I love the black girl in the sequins.

  6. Elizabeth - welcome and thanks plenty for your note, nice to hear from ya. And that's Miss Banter to you. We must speak of literary matters when the rest of this riff raff isn't cluttering the halls.

    Gonzo - welcome to you too and thanks. I'm always willing to be flattered

    Thombeau, I'm thrilled I was able to finally get one music post on that hadn't already gone up on Fabulon.

    I thought that was you in the sequins.

  7. You are freaking kidding me. They used to play this song when I worked at the GAP, and everyone would stop and wonder what they were saying!

    The general consensus was they were saying " baby 1, 2, 3 BULL SHIT!"

    Pull Shapes huh?
