Some covers for Friday

Just what it says on the tin, folks. The plan is to get into doing these on a more regular basis, so I’m going to kick off with these:

Jesus and Mary Chain -‘Vegetable Man (Syd Barrett cover).’ mp3

Pop Will Eat Itself -‘Games Without Frontiers (Peter Gabriel cover).’ mp3

Motorcycle Boy -‘His Latest Flame (Elvis cover).’ mp3

Ash -‘Does Your mother Know? (Abba cover).’ mp3

Buffalo Tom -‘Going Underground (The Jam cover).’ mp3

Now, these aren’t mp3s but I thought they might appeal…

Back in 1993, Smashing Pumpkins’ Siamese Dream was my favourite album of the year. The Big Pink recorded a version of it for the BBC just before Christmas which you can stream here:

I have been slowly won round to Lana Del Rey. Not because of the fact that I had a problem with the way that she looks, but more to do with the excessive hype, and yet ‘Video Games’ and other tracks have won me round. This is a version by a band called Silver Swans, who do an excellent take on it.

Over the last few days, I have become increasingly obsessed with Belgian-Australian artist Gotye (pronounced like Gautier) whose track ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ looks like it might be a huge hit. I hope so. This is a version by a band called Walk Off The Earth.

There’s numerous covers of songs by Frightened Rabbit around, but this is a version of a Frabbits song, as perfomred by John Stotz. The song is originally from their second album The Midnight Organ Fight.

Another track from my inbox, this is a Steely Dan song, performed by The Darcys:
