John Peel with Laura Cantrell, one of his favourite people
Sometimes, there are some cover versions that completely revisit the original to such an extent it completely rewrites the song almost.
One of those is ‘Love Vigilantes’ by New Order, originally on their Lowlife album, and covered this year by Laura Cantrell on her latest album Trains And Boats And Planes. Eighties electro-indie goes new country? Don’t knock it ’til you’ve heard it…
