WHIP MY BLUE CHIP (single)

CD | Gronland Records / Virgin 2006

 

featuring:

- Whip My Blue Chip (Original)

- Stratojets Remix

 

"PET haben Sexyness. Des Weiteren: kundigen Eklektizismus, der sich in den Weiten des Pop-Panoptikums auskennt und Beliebigkeitsfallen in einer Mischung aus Coolness und Cleverness weiträumig umfährt. Plus: jede Menge Heckmeck mit Stil. Und das sind nur ein paar der vielen Wahrheiten, die man über Rewind The Sofa Lady frohgemut ausplaudern kann." (Musikexpress)

LIVE IN LONDON

CD | Neun Volt Records 2009

 

recorded at the Cargo/London during the PETUK-tour in May 2007.

 

"Presenting a brand new definition of perfect sophisti-pop, PET specialize in springy synths, mischievous psychedelia, sharp guitars and an irresistible quirky edge. Combine it all with addictive choruses and effortlessly radio-friendly hooks you have the perfect modern pop group - all wrapped in an ideology at once gloriously classic and spookily futuristic, therefore sounding completely modern. "

SNOOZE (EP)

12' vinyl + CD | Gronland Records / Rough Trade 2005

 

"Feel-good electro pop. From Germany? Before succumbing to his love of 70s space pop, Andre Abshagen used to make obscure electronica in Berlin's Dauerfisch. His PET project mutates the T Rex formula with classic moogs and computer game squeaks to create the most feel-good pop on the planet. " (BBC 6 Collective)

 

featuring:

- Snooze Radio Edit

- Boom Bip's Girls In Stripes Remix

- Sole Remix

- Mr 9 Volt Remix

PET Player One Ready

 

 

 

 

PLAYER ONE READY

vinyl + CD | Gronland Records / Rough Trade 2005

 

PET's debut album.

 

“Fresh, grown up pop with a twist...a sparkling electronic jewel.“ Q MAGAZINE

 

"If the cross-fertilisation between English and German rock had started in the early, rather than the late, 1970s, the result might well have sounded like PET. Berlin-based Andre Abshagen plays electro-pop with the emphasis firmly after the hyphen. The lightness of touch evident throughout makes this an ideal summer album, and anyone who fell in love with the Dandy Warhols might just find that Player One Ready could soundtrack the next couple of months rather well." (M.E. Sunday Times)

PET No Yes No

 

 

 

 

 

 

NO YES NO (single/EP)

12' + 7' vinyl + CD | Gronland Records / Rough Trade 2004

 

featuring:

7': No Yes No Original - Stratojets Remix - Gemma Hayes Remix

12': Michi Lange's Sid Rock Club Remix - Michi Lange's Too Much Water Dub

CD: No Yes No Original - Stratojets Remix - Gemma Hayes Remix - Mr 9 Volt Remix

 

 

"Hard to dislike, No Yes No form Berlin's PET takes Becks's "Sexxlaws" to the electro school of cool, and features some fantastically insane lyrics. Lots and lots of fun."

(Jockey Slut)

 

"PET are really rather fabulous and could well be the next band that are a little too odd to have any right to cross over to the mainstream. These house mixes aren't going to hurt that mission with the original peculiar lyrics slotting perfectly over a distorted jerky groove from the sometimes Boris Dlugosch partner. A darker, more electronic club on the flip works well if you find PET a little quirky, but be warned, you'll be hearing a lot more from these guys and I couldn't think of any PET jokes."

PET Superpet

 

 

 

 

 

SUPERPET (single/EP)

12' vinyl | Digital | Gronland Records / Rough Trade 2004

 

featuring:

- Original Super Version

- Evil Nine Remix

- Toob Remix

- Superdemo 01

 

"This is an absolute must-have. The original mix is like and to X producing the score to a 70s B-Movie (dreamy synth melody on top of toys going beserk and beefy guitars through a wall of Marshall amps). Staying true to the original live aspects Evil 9 deliver a hypnotic reworking that's equally brilliant (Kinda funked-up joy division) while superdemo offers a bleepy mix and Toob (ex Red Snapper) give it the avant-garde treatment. 5/5."
(DMC / Update Magazine)
 
"What is this? Breaks? House? Rock? Goodness Knows. It is, however, definitely pacy guitar-led madness with a nice rocky break beat, big knocking congas and chipping high hats. In other words, its a fast paced dancefloor craziness and, although we might have called it big beat a few years ago. It has far more class than a bit of ale-fueled bouncing-about music." (Jockey Slut Magazine)
