Indie darlings Be Your Own Pet received a lot of attention after Thurston Moore signed them to his record label, Ecstatic Peace — but they backed up his vote of confidence with hard work, constant touring and appearances at nearly every major music gathering in the country (Lollapalooza, SXSW, CMJ). However, band members Jonas Stein and John Eatherly haven't yet run out of steam or forgotten their roots: The pair still tours as their pre-BYOP garage-pop band, Turbo Fruits (www.myspace.com/78236428). This two-man band kicks up a lot of noise and caustic boogie, and sounds a little like the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion or a punkier T. Rex.
