THE HOT PUPPIES consist of Bec Newman (vocals), Beth Gibson (vocals / keyboards / theremin), Luke Taylor (guitars / vocals), Ben Faircloth (bass) and Bert Wood (drums). They originally formed in Aberystwyth, West Wales, and now reside in Cardiff. ** ''How Come You Don''t Hold Me No More'' is taken from the lavishly acclaimed ''Under The Crooked Moon'' album, released at the tailend of the summer of 2006 on fierce panda. Happily, this single version is a fresh mix of the song which has already become something of a signature tune for the quintet, so it sounds even better. NME once claimed that listening to The Hot Puppies is "as fantastic as waking up in a sea of Oreo cookies with no option but to eat your way to safety." And they weren''t wrong. ** Over the past year the Puppies have taken their tales of broken hearts and aching melodies far and wide across the land, performing alongside such likeminded leftfield luminaries as Art Brut, The Grates, The Chalets and The Pipettes. It would be churlish to deny that ''How Come You Don''t Hold Me No More'' has been a shining beacon at each and every one of those gigs, it being the showstopping ballad with the hushed verses and the crushing chorus. Crucially, following the hi-falutin'' frolics of the singles ''Terry'' and ''Green Eyeliner'', ''How Come You Don''t Hold Me No More'' shows a completely different side to the band, revealing a chink of vulnerability in their girlpop-powered armour. Luke the guitarist writes the songs from a woman''s perspective. Bec the singer sings those songs from a woman''s perspective. It''s a funny old system but it works, by gum. TRACKLISTING: 01. HOW COME YOU DON''T HOLD ME NO MORE 02. FLIES ON THE CEILING
