THE SUN:
“CHEEKY up-and-coming band BO PEPPER know how to get Bizarre fame - by giving it a mention in their video. The new single, No One But Yourself To Blame, is out on iTunes on Monday and the video is a cracker. The group, fronted by stunning singer DOLLY PEPPER, are soon off to LA to work with producer GREG WELLS.”

THE LONDON PAPER:
“We think the unsigned band is destined for big things.”

THE GUARDIAN:
“Bo Pepper will massage your senses with their effervescent punk-pop. Blinkandyou’llmissit!…sounds like the Knack’s My Sharona shrieked by Karen O through Julian Casablancas’ voice box.”

BBC MANCHESTER:
“Surprisingly and impressively, Bo Pepper combine elements of Blondie new wave, sixties pop and zeitgeist indie to killer effect, slipping the sort of lyrical hooks and musical barbs into your brain that slowly drive you insane with pleasure. And if the future star that is singer Dolly Pepper, brilliantly accessorized by a leopard print guitar, weren’t enough for you, how about the intensely odd reality of their twin brother drummers? Rest assured, Bo Pepper are something special.”

THE TIMES:
“Bo Pepper, a London band currently tipped for big things “

MUSIC WEEK:
“This puppet-fronted video is putting Bo on the map”

JONATHON ROSS:
Bo Pepper- Blinkandyou’llmissit!- I like that!”

THE HITSHEET:
“We think they tick all the boxes and with the right team will be huge. Bo Pepper are hot! They make cracking good indie and radio-friendly pop songs. We can hear influences ranging from Blondie to the Ting Tings.”

THE AUSTIN CHRONICLE:
“How is it possible that UK-based Bo Pepper remains unsigned when Perez Hilton has decreed that it should be otherwise? "I’m Bored" is the most unboring unsigned track to come out of the UK this year.”

Lyrics

Blinkandyou'llmissit!

Written By: Alexis Strum

Blinkandyou’llmissit!

That was a mean hand
And everybody knows
Jacks up your sleeve and
You’re on your own

You picked the wrong girl to mess around blink and you’ll miss it
I’m already gone!
You picked the wrong time – I’ll spell it out- blinkandyou’llmissit!
I’m already gone.

Let’s take this outside
Nobody wants a fight
I’ll see you outside
I’ll put you right

You picked the wrong girl to mess around blink and you’ll miss it
I’m already gone!
You picked the wrong time – I’ll spell it out- blinkandyou’llmissit!
I’m already gone.

I could do you like no other
I could be your girl
I could make you beg and suffer
I could be your girl
You’re a dirty piece so rotten
I should be your girl
Yeah I’ll go down in history

You picked the wrong girl to mess around blink and you’ll miss it
I’m already gone!
You picked the wrong time – I’ll spell it out- blinkandyou’llmissit!
I’m already gone.

You’re a man like any other
I should be your girl
You’re so hot it blows my cover
I should be your girl
I’m so young and you’re so broken
I should be your girl
And we’ll all go down in history

Buses

BUSES

It’s the story of my life
Always rushing headfirst in the wrong direction
I should know by now
I’m in need of some advice
I should read a book where men in white coats discuss this-
Why you boys are just like buses…

Oh cos you wait in line
For the 109
Where’s my ride- when’s he gonna come?
The timing’s wrong-
That’s just what it feels like
And then two come along

Wait forever
Sent to test you
Gain some wisdom
Blink you’ll miss them

I was glad to be alone
That was just a lie to make me big and clever
And I don’t feel much better off
Got no faith in the unknown
Filled out every number on life’s twisted coupon
Lord by now I deserve a new one

Oh and I wait in line
For the 109
Where’s my ride- when’s he gonna come?
The timing’s wrong-
That’s just what it feels like
And then two come along

And I’ve made up my mind I’m gonna keep on waiting
Through thick and thin
My clothes are damp and my will is fading
But I can’t give in

Too proud to admit defeat
Never been a fan of patience you can keep it
Let me have my cake and eat it all

We usually play for around half an hour- short and sweet like our tracks! We haven't done any covers as yet but would love to cover The Smiths or The Cure one day! Or maybe even Dire Straits...
