T.V. EP Reviews:
"Five songs may be all we need to fall in love with the Vettes"---Jaya Saxena, OffBeat Magazine
"The Vettes’ latest CD clearly shows influential signs of the rock/dance/pop sound of the late 70’s and early 80’s that made the music from Blondie a household name."---Sheri McKee, Where Y'at Magazine
"If Debbie Harry crashed a Joy Division recording session, the resulting song could have been “Give Em What They Want.” ...skillful re-creation of new wave and indie sounds from decades past, the group has another hook — all five band members are siblings. "---John Wirt, The Advocate
About the Vettes:
"Let’s get back to the issue: if the press wants a story we’ll give them a story!" announces lead singer of The Vettes’ Rachel Vette. Let’s just say that this is the first new wave/ alternative/ rock outfit that actually begs the question. Recently signed to indie/alt-rock label ThroBack Records in June of 2007 The Vettes is set to release an inadvertently self-titled debut EP entitled T.V. EP in March of 2008 which was produced by the stylistically diverse Grammy Award winning producer John L. Parker (Smile Empty Soul, Keb Mo) and mixed by David J. Holman (No Doubt-Tragic Kingdom, Bush- Sixteen Stone & Razorblade Suitcase).
To put the rumors to rest The Vettes is, in fact, a family band, but in order to fully grasp the concept one must first dismiss the preconceived notions of all the real life and fictitious family band stereotypes we’ve all come to know and hate. "We don’t line dance and our father didn’t lock us in the attic as infants until we rehearsed if that’s what you were thinking!" Says Rachel.
Rachel, Todd, Chad, Brian, and Mitch Vette collectively known as The Vettes are all sister and brothers with Mitch being adopted into the family at a young age.
Getting back to the long awaited T.V. EP release The Vettes believe so strongly in the quality of music being released that they’ve become the first band in history to offer a 100% Customer Satisfaction Money Back Guarantee. "If someone purchases our CD and doesn’t like it we don’t think they deserve to have it; we don’t care. We’ll just give them their money back," says Chad Vette, keyboardist and main songwriter for the band. To put it gently The Vettes’ music has been in a metaphorical cage like a rabid bobcat; upon release there is no telling what the beast is capable of. In conclusion The Vettes have done it: they’ve managed to write catchy songs without being simple and honest without being didactic.
