DOWNLOAD: The Pipettes – I Think We’re Alone Now

The Pipettes were one of the many quirky, slapped-together novelty groups that popped up in England a couple of years back trying to get in on the retro-60’s nostalgia that brought us Amy Winehouse, Adele, Candie Payne and a lot other less talented wanna-be’s…they lasted all of one album, We Are The Pipettes, and got a few people listening with a lo-fi version of the old Tommy James & the Shondells hit, ‘I Think Were Alone Now’, before they faded into obscurity. However, the one bright thing I remember about the band was the voice of Rose Elinor Dougall…it alternates between the warm, husky quality of Cass Elliot, but then there is that lovely warble in the higher register that absolutely has me hearing Siouxsie Sioux…..it’s really quit amazing, but the musical arrangement of this song and even her use of the heavy black eye liner owes a nod to Siouxsie & the Banshees! Anyway…Ms. Dougall has a solo album set to drop in June and you can check her out further on MySpace
