The Puppini Sisters: Betcha Bottom Dollar www.thepuppinisisters.co.uk
[Review based on 5-track promo album sampler]
You can get a general idea of how The Puppini Sisters might sound like if I list a few of the tunes they cover. Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, Mr Sandman and Jeepers Creepers all get the straight-forward kind of treatment you might expect for favourites from the forties. There is some quite interesting Django-type guitar but otherwise no particular surprises. Not that I'm complaining - the ladies' voices are sweet, sexy and superb. But it's when you hear the arrangements of Gloria Gaynor's Disco Classic 'I Will Survive' or Kate Bush's 'Wuthering Heights' that you realise there's plenty potetial here for fun back-dating modern music. Let's face it, you'll either love this or hate. I love it.
