i just LOVE this...

Have you ever wondered what would happen if someone sang Blondie's Heart of Glass in close harmony 1940's Andrews Sisters style? no? Me neither, but then i came across the Puppini Sisters...


There are a lot of slightly off-kilter acts out there, but the Puppinis are in a class of their own. Gorgeous voices, beautifully in time and putch perfect, their debut album (out end of July) features wonderful versions of the kind of songs you'd expect to hear (boogie woogie bugle boy, mr sandman) mixed perfectly with modern classics in a similar style.

These are inevitably the ones most likely to get them some attention and you will probably love them or hate them. I happen to find them a breath of fresh air, which along with the stylistically different Lily Allen and Pipettes, I am really appreciating this summer.


Heart of Glass was made for the transformation and there is finally a remake of I Will Survive that I can stomach (yes Diana Ross i'm still getting over acid reflux from your version...). Their version of Panic by the Smiths doesn't quite work, possibly because it sounds far too upbeat, but the cover of Kate Bush's Wuthering Heights is a wild and crazy as Kate would want it to be. Check the links below to hear various songs on their myspace site and to check out the theatre page of their own website.

    Panic is INSANE! I can take them in small doses. Maybe they should tour with Xtuna since she has totally ripped off Boogie Woogie... for her new slutty song "Candyman"
