Thanks to Liz for this: http://www.popstarfeets.co.uk/blog/archives/2005/09/the_pipettes.html It's The Pipettes! Or specifically their feet/shoes. What about the Cassettes, though? Surely they are Popstars too?
I am listening to the Brakes a lot at the moment, they kind of remind me of Pixies too, and this is a good thing of course. It scared me though to see a kid in the street the other day with a 'Death To The Pixies' t-shirt on. He was only 12. Okay, so that's one of our little exaggerations, but you know what I mean. He was probably barely born when I saw Pixies on that Glasgow Uni stage all those years ago. Man, I feel old.
But Brakes. Yeah. Good. Damn good. Damn good to the point of I'd kinda like to go see them play in Brighton in half-term. If someone can get me in. HInt hint.
