Blixa Bargeld – Soul Desert

Wonderful cover of the 1970 Can song that the Neubauten frontman and Bad Seeds guitarist released in 1999 on the compliation ‘Pop 2000 / Das Gibt’s Nur Einmal’.


ANBB – I Wish I Was A Mole In The Ground (Extended)

Blixa approximates some old timey song whilst Alva Noto send glitches that disrupt your brainwaves; like seeing the world moving in snapshots.This is ANBB and their 2010 album ‘Mimikry’. The original recording by Bascom Lamar Lunsford is likely to get posted in the near future.

Einstürzende Neubauten – Morning Dew

A stunning cover of a folk song originally written and performed by Canadian singer-songwriter Bonnie Dobson. The track has been covered by a number of artists such as Lee Hazlewood, Devo, Nazareth; among many, many others. The most famous was perhaps the Grateful Dead. However, the most effective is probably this version from ‘Fünf Auf Der Nach Oben Offenen Richterskala’.

The Fall – Lost In Music

Sister Sledge get Smitherised in this cover from 1993’s ‘The Infotainment Scan’.

The Raincoats – Lola

The raincoats cover ‘Lola’ by The Kinks in the style of Cavewomen; from their self-titled 1979 debut album.

Ectogram – Excerpt From The Faust Tapes

Welsh Post-Rock act giving us some Faust from their 1995 EP ‘Spoonicon’. This was back before we knew this ‘excerpt’ was called ‘J’ai Mal Aux Dents’.

Great cover.

The Gories – Ghost Rider

Detroit Garage Punk band The Gories give us a cover of Suicide’s classic track ‘Ghost Rider’. This can be found on the band’s 1994 compilation “I Know You Be Houserockin'”

Lou Reed – This Magic Moment

Fantastic version of the Doc Pomus track from 1960 (as performed by Ben E King & The Drifters). This featured on the 1995 Pomus tribute album, ‘Till The Night Is Gone’, and was recorded around that time. It was, of course, also used in David Lynch’s 1997 film ‘Lost Highway’, and features on that soundtrack.

Melvins – Interstellar Overdrive

Melvins cover the classic Barrett-era Floyd track with great gusto.

Dump – Dirty Mind

Dump was Yo La Tengo bassist James McNew, and in 2001 he did an album of Prince covers called ‘That Skinny Motherfucker With the High Voice?’. This, the best track on the album, is a fantastic rendition of a great Prince song.
