I got this cd a while ago, but I didn't find anything that blew me away.

As far as that cd goes, racebannon did an excellent cover of death valley 69 but none of the other covers particularly impressed me. Also see their great cover of "electricity". They're not that good of a band, and their singer specifically annoys me (and somehow I've seen them live 4 times for whatever fucked up reason) but they do damn good covers.

Seek out William Hooker's version of "Becuz". Absolute godhead.

Camper Van Beethoven's country version of "I Love Her All of the Time" is a classic.

Wixel's cdr of Sonic Youth covers is really cool mostly ambient versions of stuff. "Shadow of a Doubt" is actually still pretty rocking though, and may be my favorite of them.

1. Cat Power's cover of "Schizophrenia" is great.
2. Beck supposedly covered "The Diamond Sea" acoustically at some shows.
3. The String Quartet Tribute is quite nice.
4. What was William Hooker's "Becuz" on????????

SonicBebs 01.30.2009 03:48 PM
