the pipettes - we are the pipettes 2006

The promoter, performer and guitarist Monster Bobby formed the group in mid-2003 with the intention of reviving the traditional Phil Spector pop sound and giving it a modern twist, after noticing the reaction girl group songs got during his DJ sets[3]. In collaboration with singer, poet and photographer Julia Clark-Lowes, who was inspired by Bill Drummond (and Jimmy Cauty)'s The Manual , he recruited friends from and around the local music scene. The group have been called an experiment in manufactured pop, although the members' take is that they manufactured themselves. The male backing musicians (officially called "The Cassettes", although members have emphasised that the band is officially a seven piece) rarely appear in interviews or promo photos, adding mystique and emphasising the role of the singers. The three frontwomen wear polka dot dresses and synchronised choreography is a major part of their live shows, whereas The Cassettes can be seeing wearing yellow tank tops with their initals sewn onto them.
