While Northeastern Ohio gets its share of punk rock accolades, the area is often overlooked for its power pop prowess. Lucky Pierre, Wild Giraffes, and Teachers Pet make up the original fearsome threesome, each incorporating what the area is known for: a
healthy cynicism, a smart ass attitude, and the chops to keep the punters interested. Teachers Pet incorporates those elements the
best, in my opinion. Whether it was an ode to a few stomped souls in Cincinnati, or some teenage treats down at the hot dog stand,
this is the band that stuck to the ideals.
Press for TEACHERS PET:
“Teachers Pet, four Akron lads, put out a terrific regular-old-rock single called ‘Hooked on You,’ on the local Clone Records, but
weren’t rewarded with the hit they deserved.” KEN TUCKER, The Rolling Stone Illustrated History of Rock & Roll
