A description on Wikipedia of The Pipettes
That's as maybe but I think they are good fun (in small doses!)
Apparently the intention was to revive the Phil Spector sound(and polka dot dresses!) and give it a modern twist - the jury is out on that one.
Here's the title track from their 2006 debut album We Are the Pipettes purchased in Inverness.
They are still on the go apparently albeit with an ever changing line up.
