The Hot Puppies

The Hot Puppies

The Hot Puppies are a Welsh band from Aberystwyth, now based in Cardiff, previously signed to Fierce Panda Records.

They are:

* Becky Wood (née Newman) - vocals
* Beth Gibson - Vocals/Keyboards/Theremin/Cello
* Luke Taylor - Guitar/Vocals
* Ben Faircloth - Bass
* Bert Wood - drums

The band formed in December 2000. It has toured both as a headline act, and as a support act to various bands including Art Brut, The Crimea, The Pipettes and British Sea Power.

Becky and Bert got married in May 2008. They are expecting their first baby in October 2008.

Luke is the band's principal songwriter and is also a member of Hemme Fatale

Becky Newman features on Christopher Rees' album "Cautionary Tales".

In addition to playing with the full band, Becky and Beth played a number of semi-acoustic "solo" gigs 2007 and 2008, as well as guest appearances with Circulus. They are due to release a live EP 'Where we are from, the birds sing a pretty song' with Purr Records August 2008.

The band decided on a short hiatus from spring 2008 to accommodate Becky's pregnancy, which was not compatible with the intensive touring schedule they followed in preceding years.


They have released nine singles, one demo, one EP, and two albums. Their first album, "Under The Crooked Moon" was released in July 2006. Their second, a collection of rarities and unreleased tracks recorded between 2003 and 2005 entitled "Over My Dead Body", was released in mid-2007.

They have a new album due for release on 29 September 2008, "Blue Hands". The majority of the tracks from this release have been played at recent live dates and it will include the singles "King of England" and "Somewhere".

"Love or Trial" from Under the Crooked Moon was used during the series one climax wedding scene in the UK BBC3 comedy series Gavin and Stacey.
