Friday Cover Up #2– Ted Leo Sets Off On A Bi-Annual Boat Trip With Disastrous Results

Paul and I really need to coordinate on this. He missed a few, I tried to pick up the pieces, now we're double posting...ah fuck it.

Im not sure how popular this song is over here in Ol’ Blighty, or the band that launched it onto the masses back in the early 80s, although the song is rumoured to be an attack on Britain's part in the Falklands War... Split Endz, borne from the musical miasma that are the minds of the Finn brothers, Tim and Neil, were a New Zealand phenomenon, an Antipodean behemoth, and proved to be the launchpad for Neil’s ‘other’ band, Crowded House. One of Split Endz’s most notable tracks is ‘Six Months In A Leaky Boat.’ Ted Leo, an indie punk icon, saw fit to cover it. I think it's pretty rad - and its a breezy entry to the weekend! Enjoy...
