Fall Covers

It’s finally getting colder outside, and that means it’s time to bring out the fall covers! Episode 3 of The Detuned Revue is now available for streaming or download, and this time it’s a set of cover tunes that I found interesting.

So many cover versions you hear these days seem unnecessary, serving no purpose other than grabbing PR for a mediocre band by floating them in the bubble of whatever nostalgia is currently hot. I’ve chosen some reworkings of songs that put a new twist on the original while serving as an homage. The tracks are:

1. THE FUTUREHEADS – Hounds Of Love

2. THE COOLIES – Scarborough Fair

3. THE GUN CLUB – Run Through The Jungle

4. ELEANOR MCEVOY – The Boys Are Back In Town

5. BIRDSONGS OF THE MESOZOIC – Theme From Rocky And Bullwinkle

6. EAGLES OF DEATH METAL – Stuck In The Middle

7. MOJO NIXON – Girlfriend In A Coma

8. NICKEL CREEK – Spit On A Stranger

9. THE EMBARRASSMENT – Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough

This is my first themed episode, so please let me know what you think. Thanks for listening!
