ONE-FINGERED WONDER

Matt wants us to cover 'a certain Softcell track' for our upcoming gig at Bedsitland.

 

Having listened to the track, I can only surmise that this is because his chosen track can be easily played with one finger.

I think if we are going to go down the rocky-road of cover versions, we should look to cover tracks that stretch us and stimulate us on a personal and artistic level.

"Bedsitter" is my fave track of Soft Cell's over "Tainted Love" any day. The 12 inch version is superb.

I would definitely have a crack at that one if you are serious of course!

I can never tell with you two!!

Have a good weekend.

cover versions, in general, are a tricky game in my opinion. personally, i dislike most covers that i hear. then again, i think duran duran's terrible cover album 'thank you' pretty much ruined the concept of covers for me. Simon LeBon rapping 911 is a Joke? it's just laughable! i much prefer the approach Marsheaux have to covering songs. their versions tend to be fairly true to the original with just a touch of their style added into the mix. i like that.

I'm with you on that Computer Love regards Marsheaux their covers of "Pure" and "Regret" are excellent.
