Let Pep Do the Driving

Who: Muzzy Pep

THE latest track from MUZZY PEP is destined to gain the band the airplay that largely eluded it with THIS IS NOT ART which, if you don't have a copy, is required listening.

CHAUFFEUR CALLED TUNE arrived on the TE desk last week and we haven't even been able to surgically remove the tune from our heads since.

The 'Pep plan to use this single as a teaser for its debut album which is due out next year, and is being mixed at TONY HEADS' Newcastle-based KEYTONE STUDIOS, With this tune TRIPLE J could have a new summer anthem on its hands, with Chauffeur blaring out a million Kombi windows from HOMEBAKE to THE BIG DAY OUT. 'I'm living in a song and the verses just keep rolling on, it's a melody that transports me', the chorus declares. You'll be living there too, after listening to this tune just once. And then you'll never want to leave.

With Chauffeur, Muzzy Pep's slightly whacked lyrical perspective and sinuous pop structure have collided with a melodic hook that has sunk its barb bone deep.
