Fell on my Fuck Off Machete - A late Friday cover-Up?

Well that didn't last long - so much for being back on it with the posts! 'Lame duck chained to a desk' springs to mind... Anyway, cos I've been missing the Friday cover-up posts like a neglectful parent, I thought a cover-up/reunion post twinage would be a good start. So on with it...

Back in May I got some news. It was like 2005 coming back to haunt like some kind of sick pop joke. Fuck-Off Machete, the Glasgow art-rock three-piece have got back together, there seems to be some gigs coming up in November, Glasgow's King Tuts Wah Wah Hut on November 27th is already in the bag...

Ok, it might not be the worlds most earth shattering reunion news but back in 2005 Fuck-Off Machete did put a cracker of a cover of Physical, on the b-side of 7" What's The Signal, plastering Madonna's track with their lively brand of female led, angular indie pop. So it seems a good come back cover-up. Here's hoping for some new Fuck-Off Machete material soon.

  1. It is good to have you back Paul - shouldering the burden is fun, but its good to have a wingman! That said - and at HUGE risk to any semblance of cred I may have - that's an Olivia Newton-John cover, not Madonna. Not a bad thing to not know, I might add. Now to wash my mouth out with A Place To Bury Strangers...
