Not Your Average Pet

“We are Pet Conspiracy, we are from China but we don’t eat pets”, such is the introduction to this young and bold electroclash band from Beijing, led by Helen Feng, an America fed and educated Chinese and an Italian drummer Edo. Now “Queen of the Beijing Rock scene”, Feng has released several EPs while with Pet and other bands, including the nostalgic Depot and club friendly Don’t You Move.

Formed in 2008, with over 250 gigs under the belt, the Pets are ambitious and aiming high. Simian, Crystal Castles and LCD Sound Systems are the names they often mention. Already toured in Berlin and several major cities in Europe in 09, their up and coming show is at Beijing Yugong Yishan supporting the almighty Peaches on the 24th of April. Expect to see some jumping off stage, pulling down speakers and tipping over monitors as a warm-up for Peaches from these naughty Pets. A destructive London visit is surely looming up this year.
