I came home the other night and the wife said something terrible has happend, you better sit down as this is going to destroy you, so I sit down and she tells me that one of our children has accused his teacher of touching him, with this I go to the fridge, pull out a beer and say" crappity smacking Hell, donít do that to me, I thought you were going to say Ronan Keating has covered a dels songs.

Don't do it, it will only end in tears.

I don't think my cover of TATN is better or worse, i think i approached it in a way that felt more me.  I find the criss-crossing guitars a bit overpowering on the original.

but I agree, covers are generally pointless if they slavishly follow the originals.

I prefer doing my own stuff though.

All cover versions suck large amounts of dead penguin dick, including yours. The only exception is Word Up by Gun.


i thought that was of the highest quality of funniness.

Manfred Mann's Earthband did a truly abysmal version of Nothing Ever Happens, and I've got a few other released covers which I'm not too sure of - Clive Gregson and Christine Collister doing Move Away Jimmy Blue springs to mind.  But there are one or two OK ones, I quite like the version of NEH by German singer Anne Haigis.  You can download it at eMusic.com.  She's also got a verion of To Last A Lifetime at her MySpace page http://www.myspace.com/annehaigis

There's an Italian version of Driving With The Brakes on by a band called Stadio - which doesn't actually translate to anything like the original;.  I played it to Justin once and he then played it into the auditorium at the Brighton gig in 1998.  It sounded as if they'd ripped off the instrumental tracks and added on the vocals.  Sounds quite sexy though.

And it's all money in Justin's coffers....

OK I admit it - I'm a bit of an anorak.  (Though I'm sure Joe an Rory can think of some better/worse things to call me).

"Clive Gregson and Christine Collister doing Move Away Jimmy Blue springs to mind."
I'd like to hear that... I'll have to see if I can find a torrent.

(I love living in a country where it's legal to download)

It's on an album called Love In A Stange Hotel released in 1990.  They also cover songs by 10cc, Boo Herwadine, Roddy Frame, Jackson Browne, Joni Mitchell and Bruce Springsteen on this album
