You can grab this here - arent they just the best?!?
As you can see, they boys gave me many chances for a Friday Cover Up. But I just had to chose their cover of Scottish arty types Life Without Buildings. Why? Because 'New Town' is one of the best songs ever bloody written, that's why? This song is such a favourite that it closed out our hour long playlist on Breakthru Radio last year. So this is HUUUUUUGE! Note: NO ONE other than Life Without Buildings can do this song. Not Cool, though, do a bloody fine job. Trust me - Ive just made your Friday complete.
