Some Covers For Thursday

(it’s really not far off this in Scotland now)

OK, don’t know how much I’m going to be able to post over the next few days, so here are seven covers for today. No linking theme, but hope you like them:

Muse -‘House Of the Rising Sun (The Animals cover).’ mp3

Big Star -‘Femme Fetale (Velvet Underground cover).’ mp3

The Pretenders -‘I Go To Sleep (The Kinks cover).’ mp3

Madness -‘It Must be Love (Labi Siffre cover).’ mp3

The Wedding Present -‘Felicity (Orange Juice cover).’ mp3

Slowdive -‘Some Velvet Morning (Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra cover).’ mp3

Big Black -‘The Model (Kraftwerk cover).’ mp3

Just a quick one…

…Ever picked up an album, like dirt, dirt cheap and found it was worth more than you thought?

Have been off for a few days with ‘flu (like most of you, prabably!) but I few days ago I picked up the Pretenders’ 2003 album Loose Screw…and this track particularly, seems to have lodged itself in my brain. I know received wisdom seems to be that they were never as cool after the first two albums, but this is a subtle wee gem. Wherever you are, if there are sales on, do check the bargain bins, ‘cos there are some goodies out there!

The Pretenders -‘Complex Person.’ mp3

If you cannot pick this up for a pound (hint to UK readers, mine was from Fopp), then there are copies very cheaply here on Amazon.

Enjoy your weekend, wherever you may be!
