The Puppini Sisters and Graham Rogers
Interview with The Puppini Sisters
The popular 40s-style Doo-wop trio visited BBC Radio Swindon recently. Listen to their interview with presenter Graham Rogers.
In this day and age of Crazy Frog, X-Factor wannabes and Hard House music it's quite refreshing to hear a successful band harking back to the music of the 40s and 50s.
London-based female trio The Puppini Sisters who formed in 2004 take their cue from the close harmony singing groups of the mid-20th century.
Although the three are not related, they take their name from founder member Marcella Puppini, after she was inspired by the animated film Belleville Rendez-vous.
Marcella and her fellow 'sisters' Stephanie O'Brien and Kate Mullins have so far released two well-received albums - 'Betcha Bottom Dollar' in 2006 and 'The Rise and Fall of Ruby Woo,' released in October 2007.
As part of their current UK tour, The Puppini Sisters dropped into Swindon for a gig at The Arts Centre on Friday 28th September.
Beforehand, they visited the BBC Radio Swindon studios and appeared on Graham Rogers' Afternoon Show. There they talked to Graham about their career so far and sang a couple of songs.
