The Pipettes

The Pipettes change members more than Lady Gaga changes outfits, so expect new faces when they return to North America this Spring for a tour that includes at least three NYC-area shows: Rock Shop on 4/18, Mercury Lounge on 4/20, and Maxwell's on 4/22. Tickets on sale soon at the links.

It's been a while since the Pipettes were here (remember when they played Bowery Ballroom with Amy Winehouse?), though ex-member Rose Elinor Dougall was just here as part of Mark Ronson's band.

The Pipettes released their last LP Earth vs Pipettes in late 2010. A couple of videos, a new/2010 Christmas song, and all known 2011 dates (more TBA), below...

There is such a thing as being too hot for your music's own good...

I have something to fit into the pipette's pipes....Giggity. Giggity...(wait for it)....Goooooooooooooo.

They are quite adorable...and although the music seems extremely handled and labored over its still kind of irresistible.

I love how the ugly one "left" the band and they tried to spin it as if it was her own decision.

Remember when Pitchfork used to be all over these girls' coochies? I think they lost about 90% of their original members, though. Kinda off topic, but the last time I saw them play, there was this incredibly annoying couple talking about TMI stuff. The guy kept asking his gf, "Do you like my seven and a half inch pipette? Do you like my seven and a half inch pipette?" It took me awhile to realize The Pipettes had a special show-only 7.5" (which I've never seen before) vinyl. I felt ashamed for letting my mind go into the gutter.

Let's see who can come up with the most crass comment. They've all been a little tame so far. We can do much better than this.

I'd fuck these two British broads so hard and for such a long time that they wouldn't be able to tell the difference between their pearly white skin and the load of pearly white cum I'd bedazzle their smoking bods with in all positions.

Who are those dudes in the background?

Are the Pipettes the female Menudo?

Dudes in the background are Princeton

Oof! these girls are awful.

This photo was taken in Düsseldorf, Germany circa 1971....the young men in the background are indeed, Kraftwerk.

This is the thing I hate about hipsters. They look great in clothes, but then you take that away from them and all you're left with is a girl with a weird shaped body and turkey tits or a hairy guy with Grover body.

The new record flopped, it was a rather disappointing effort. Hopefully Gwen won't be wearing that massive faux-fur pink coat like she was a couple of years ago, she looked like cotton candy...but one you stuck your cock in.

still got nothing on the Prince Rama girls

Posted by Anonymous | March 1, 2011 12:57 PM

Those guys in the background are Shaftwerk.

And I hate when women stand like that.

Best part is... they are sisters.

Haha I just walked in on my little bro jerking off to the pic in this post.

what are turkey tits?

Posted by Anonymous | March 1, 2011 2:12 PM

I heard Grover Body is opening for them at Rock Shop.

Posted by Anonymous | March 1, 2011 2:18 PM

12:55 PM : I'll admit it. I laughed. Grover Body is classic and I will be using it.

Turkey tits are kind of like when the boobs are triangular in shape and fold/flop down, but they aren't big enough to make them look appealing. It's a lack of perkiness to the bust of a small-chested woman.

Wow! These Pipettes are shit. They should be huge.

Posted by Anonymous | March 1, 2011 3:12 PM

oh...ok...thanks!

i'm guessing the new girl will be attractive.

So hot. So boring.

If they shut up, I'd hit that...

Grover is thin as a rail, you idiot at 3:37.

Posted by Anonymous | March 1, 2011 7:59 PM

Actually 7:59pm, Grover body is used to describe a male who is thin but with a slight pooch in the gut (usually caused by alcohol consumption or eating too much vegan cheese)

Posted by Anonymous | March 2, 2011 8:03 AM

Grover body... PERFECT.
Also, if we are to believe accounts of what extra-terrestrials look like, then possibly evolutionary development is headed toward that.

I'll take an encino man anytime though.
