    Sprechen sie deutsch? Kein Hass Da do Bad Brains in German

    KEIN HASS DA sprechen sie Bad Brains en deutsch. And they fucking rule. Seriously, these german dudes are really just a bad brains tribute band, except for one difference: they've re-done 25 Bad Brains songs from 78-89 - IN GERMAN. I guess they also wrote their own lyrics and they'll be releasing a CD & book called Hirntrafo, complete with illustrations and comics, on November 5th.

    You should have known better, rude boy!

    Last night I discovered that I have three very different and totally awesome versions of The Beatles’ harmonica-pop gem from A Hard Day’s Night – “I Should Have Known Better.” It should go without saying that version 1 is, of course, the original. Version 2 […]

    Dirty Projectors do Black Flag, Beck does Cohen & Spence

    Cunt Sparrer – ‘Because You’re Young’

    So somebody sent me this a couple weeks ago and I've heard some mixed criticism - people either don't like this chick's voice, get pissed because they "destroyed" a Cock Sparrer song, or totally love it (like I do). I was having some drama and this shit kinda brought me to tears. Maybe it isn't as good as I think it is and I was just in a "mood" if you will - I've listened to it since then and I still kinda like it but I'm interested in your opinion. What do you think?

    Nada Surf Tour & Album Of Cover Songs

    Nada Surf bring their trademark sense of harmony and musical craftsmanship to 12 of their favorite songs with their latest release, if i had a hi-fi, their first album of covers. Only a group with their wide-ranging and eclectic taste could bring songs from such artists as Kate Bush, Dwight Twilley and the Go-Betweens together into a coherent, intelligent record. hi-fi also includes some intriguingly obscure numbers like Spanish band Mecromina's "Evolution" and Bill Fox's power-pop "Electrocution."

    Cover songs mixtape – Halloween 2009

    The search for a new mixtape service (among other things) continues. 8tracks.com works, but it’s not the greatest. Enter mixtape.me, which ALMOST does the job, but I sorta hate the way it looks. Anyway, this playlist isn’t full of Halloween songs – just covers. You […]

    THE JAZZ BUTCHER IS PLAYING PTP FEST 2

    The Jazz Butcher, also known as The Jazz Butcher Conspiracy and The Jazz Butcher And His Sikkorskis From Hell, are a British musical group founded by Pat Fish. Their oeuvre is blackly humorous with such topics as Thomas Pynchon's The Crying of Lot 49, an unrequited crush on Shirley Maclaine, and an ode to SF writer Harlan Ellison. The song "Sister Death" is not about the comic book character
