Three Darn Tootin' Good Cover Versions For Y'all!
Sorry for the interruption in broadcasts there folks, had a megabusy day tuesday and then last night went to see the Manics at the Astoria, which was rather fun if a bit weird (as the last time I saw them was about 5 years ago!). Still a good night and they played a few songs each from Gold Against The Soul and The Holy Bible, which made up for the deluge of BAD new stuff. Anyway today I thought i'd post a little selection of cover versions. None of them that rare or unheard of, but all of them rather lovely in their own way. First up is the ace Final Fantasy cover of Joanna Newsom's Peach Plum Pear. Owen Pallett has done a load of great covers live, but this is probably the best. Personally I loved last year's He Poos Clouds and can't wait for the followup.
Final Fantasy - Peach Plum Pear
Patti Smith - Here I Dreamt I Was An Architect
TV On The Radio - Walking The Cow
