About this item

The Nashville, Tennessee, garage rock group were signed as teenagers to the prestigious XL in the UK and Thurston Moore's Ecstatic Peace label in the US, with whom they released two widely acclaimed albums. They went on to tour with the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Sonic Youth, Le Tigre etc and have been cited as influences for groups such as Paramore and Big Joanie.


Barry says: Be Your Own Pet are back! finally closing out a 15 year gap with the brilliant 'Mommy'. If anything, the sort of snarling indie-punk BYOP make is even more relevant now, with the current surge in garage punk and jagged indie-music perfectly aligning with the band's classic sound. A superb LP and a very welcome return.
