Time for another music post in a different kitchen. OK, you may not enjoy 'surf music'. You may not enjoy cover versions. So, here are some surf cover versions - but wait, this had me smiling when I heard one of the tracks on the radio this week.
This is by one of the best Japanese surf rock bands on the planet - The Routes. They are releasing a new LP next month and although you can't get the LP yet, they've provided a sampler of the fifteen tracks on YuTub.
You may hate this, but give it a listen. I really like it myself, but I'm not going to rush out and buy it. Enjoy the weekend.
Apart from an album of Buzzcocks tracks, they did an LP of kraftwerk stuff too. You will have to give that a listen, Jeff.
I'm a huge Charlatans fan. The other day I heard Bring on the Lucie (Freda Peeple) by John Lennon and it occurred to me that this song must have been something of an inspiration to Rob Collins as they are bits of Just When You're Thinking Things Over AND Just Lookin' in it. For those who know those two Charlatans songs well, check out Bring on the Lucie (Freda Peeple) and see what you think...
Also, check out Fearless by Pink Floyd...
Now, tell me that riff is not also on Here Comes A Soul Saver by The Charlatans?
I may return tomorrow with something (if I can find it) that you may find one of the worst 'football related' records ever.
Go on then.
I saw the England 1970 world cup squad LP in a second hand record shop in Birmingham about 25 years ago. So I bought it just so I could hear how bad it was.
Welcome to another Friday night in the Cover Version Corner.
After last weeks post from Jeff - Acid Reign doing HOTT, I've got another high tempo energy version of a well known classic.
Back in the days when music could be fun and joyful, there was a band called The Dickies. Here's their take on Paranoid. All two minutes of it. I have on 7 inch, the grooves take up about one inch.
Enjoy. I may return tomorrow with something (if I can find it) that you may find one of the worst 'football related' records ever.
