Friday Cover Up - Go Go Eddy Current!
Its been a while since a good cover has graced these Friday pages, but I have an all-out goodun to reignite the passions. Australian Music Prize winning Melbourne four piece (and one of the best bands on the planet) Eddy Current Suppression Ring are bringing out So Many Things on October 21 through Fuse Records - which is not so much the anticipated follow up to their incredibly well-received 2010 effort Rush To Relax, as it is a 22-track collection of ECSR's out-of-print singles and a few other rarities. That is in itself some of the best news we have heard all year. Amongst these offcuts are a few covers, including versions of Aussie punk legends the Chosen Few’s "There’s A Lot Of It Going Around" and The Go-Gos’ "We Got The Beat". So to finish off the week, before I blow my eardrums out with Akron/Faimly and Moon Duo, I want you all to crank the below Go-go's cover right up - it is incredibly unhinged, somewhat childish, and altogether ace! Go on then - get the beat!
