IR SoCal Welcomes: Betty & The Werewolves – David Cassidy
Betty and the Werewolves are three girls and one boy from London who whoop and howl through the night as sweetly sung melodies collide with glitter-struck punk guitars. Taking inspiration from luminary lycanthropes Virginia Woolf and Grandma Wolf, they sing ditties about falling in love with David Cassidy and strange encounters on night buses, shouting all the while and scuffing up their party shoes.
This is their wonderful second single following their debut 7” last year on DG called ‘Euston Station’ and it’s a homage to 70’s super pop pin-up and Partridge Family member, David Cassidy. It’s backed with another live favourite ‘Plastic’
The Werewolves recorded this just after their recent tour dates with Fucked Up, who have been telling anyone that will listen that BATW are their favourite band in the world. This single will hopefully plug the gap for those who can’t wait for the debut album which is due out later in the year. [damaged goods]
Why feature them here on the Southern California feed? Well, we welcome most anything that has references to the area or the fascination towards such illustrious stars who got their start here. Dave always maintained that he hated the “bubblegum pop” style of music on The Partridge Family and wanted to be taken seriously as a hard rock musician. Perhaps with this tribute, people will now start paying serious note.
