Some Covers For Saturday Part V

Emma Pollock, of The Delgados

Hadn't posted many covers here for a while, so here's have a dozen for you.

First up, as I have said on many occasions before, The Delgados are my favourite scottish band of all time. So here's a cover of a Delgados song, and the Delgados covering the Dead Kennedys' California Uber Alles:

Comrade Down -'American Trilogy (Delgados' cover).' mp3

Delgados -'California Uber Alles (Dead Kennedys cover).' mp3

I will post my review of the Lightspeed Champion album here very soon. In the meantime, here is his cover of Olivia Newton-John and The Electric Light Orchestra's song 'Xanadu.' mp3

Lightspeed Champion -'Xanadu (Olivia Newton-John and Electric Light Orchestra cover).' mp3

I've posted cover versions by Nirvana before, so why not other bands taking on Nirvana songs?

Patti Smith -'Smells Like Teen Spirit (Nirvana cover).' mp3

Tori Amos -'Smells Like Teen Spirit (Nirvana cover).' mp3

Kathryn Williams -'All Apologies (Nirvana cover).' mp3

There will be more music, including album reviews and more John Peel-related posts over the next few days, so keep checking back...

have a good weekend, Ed X

Have a good one! Have to shamefully confess to only recently having heard this cover, but I think it's good, and respect to the Delgados for covering something something a little bit different.
