Arcade Fire covers bonanza!



Hello folks.

Mrs. 17 Seconds and I are now back from our holidays, so we are now back at 17. Seconds towers (many thanks to the legendary scots indie bassist who flatsat for us while we were away). Thanks also due to friend who lent me his laptop when on holiday so I could still post.

One of the emails that I received whilst I was away was asking if I could repost some of the Arcade Fire covers I had posted in the past.

...well, why not? And a few I don't think I have posted before.

Arcade Fire -'Naive Melody (This Must Be The Place) (Talking Heads cover).' mp3

Arcade Fire -'Five Years (David Bowie cover).' mp3

Arcade Fire -'Maps (Yeah Yeah Yeahs cover).' mp3

Arcade Fire -'Guns Of Brixton (The Clash cover).' mp3

Arcade Fire -'I'm So Bored With The USA (The Clash cover).' mp3

Arcade Fire -'Age Of Consent (New Order cover).' mp3

Arcade Fire -'Kiss Off (Violent Femmes cover).' mp

Arcade Fire -'Poupee De Cire, Poupee De Son (France Gall cover).' mp3

Arcade Fire -'All The Umbrellas In London (Magnetic Fields cover).' mp3

Arcade Fire -'Wave Of Mutilation (Pixies cover).' mp3 (This is very short yet seems to sum up the essence of the song very well, IMHO).

Enjoy!

Interesting stuff, Eduardo...do this band have ANY original material???

From the title, I thought you were going to post an Arcade Fire version of the theme from 'Bonanza'! This is better, though.

Ed said...

sig -Yup, two fantastic albums' worth. You mean you haven't heard 'Funeral' or 'Neon Bible'?!?! For shame, Sir, for shame!

Dave - they may well have covered that as well, but this post took long enough...

That must have been some holiday you and Mrs 17 had Ed if it's inspired your last couple of posts. I've never heard any of the tracks here, so a happy Monday morning for me.

Got to try and squeeze a listen in before I go to work.....

David - it was indeed a great holiday, just relaxing with firends in Cornwall, I almost caught up on my sleep!

Happy listening,

Ed

Playing through the Arcade Fire covers brought to mind the Belle & Sebastian version of 'Poupee'. It's very nice, very B & S. Haven't heard much about them recently......

Ed said...
