Family Pet Bio:
Family Pet comes from the ashes of Dwyer's previous bands Sadwich and Feeling Feelings. Both used overly cutesy elements Dwyer felt no longer suited her temperament. She was simply too pissed off. So Family Pet was built on frustration and aggression. Dwyer promptly recruited her sister Maggie on guitar, and they put all their efforts into this blood-bonded punk-rock sister act, à la Kim & Kelley Deal of The Breeders in the late ‘80s.
