The Pumps

The Pumps formed in April of 2005. Singer Lauria Lovekill (Vicki, Il Jesu), bassist Sara Thunder (Vicki, Jonny and the Limelites) and keyboardist Lara Hollywood got together for a few informal practices, ultimately laying down the bare-bones structures of two future Pumps songs, "Blood Vessel Pop" and "Choke."

They really put on an electric show, I saw them in the spring at the Beat Kitchen. Lauria reminds me of a young Debbie Hairy and their sound is like early 80s go-go's drug induced punk. They do have an album and an ep out right now but you have to go to a show to get it. Try to catch them with The Hidden Mitten.
