    their youth to rock n roll. Be Your Own PET are a case in point.

    Nothing's gonna stop 'em. Four friends (3 dudes, 1 femme) get together in Nashville basement and compare notes. Likes: caffeine, spicy food, T Rex, Television, bicycles, Iggy & the Stooges, skateboarding, Afri Rampo, sea horses, Velvet Underground, asthma inhalers, Animal Collective. Dislikes: boredom, posers, posers, boredom, flat tires, runny eggs, lameness, boredom. Actually boredom's pretty cool cuz then you can SMASH IT! Be Your Own Pet smash through it all. Jemina Pearl's voice is a wild wonder whipping through the motorcycle guitar thrash of buddy Jonas Stein and landing on the wicked beat/note interplay of rhythm monsters Nathan Vasquez (bass) and Jamin Orrall (drums). It all started sort of in 2003 when Jamin's bro Jake played bass and they were called the Night Shift Nurses.

    1st gigs were at Guido's Pizza and a local coffee joint called Bongo Java. Jake split to Evergreen State and Nathan came in with a seriously killer amp-blasting concept and a most excellent 'fro. The basement-released CDR "Damn Damn Leash" was an instant fireball anthem and an MP3 fell into the hands of Zane Lowe of BBC Radio One.

    London label XL Recordings re-released it with an extra track and more hearts were ignited. The band continue to play local freak scenes with their coterie of friends and fans going ballistic. Small house parties are where the energy develops. Lucky for the rest of us they like to get in the van and cruise outta town. They destroyed and dominated 2004's CMJ in New York and subsequently South By Southwest.. Rough Trade UK were in attendance, tongues dripping with rock juice, and released a single. Next move was to record an LP and Steve McDonald of Redd Kross manned the controls.
