Dreadlock Holiday? Way Yes!

Despite the titles' similarity, there is no connection to School Tour, the Dublin act I posted about last week and their Yes Way EP - read and listen here. Instead we have the Columbus Ohio based band Way Yes, covering 10CC's 'Dreadlock Holiday', which seeing as it is the 1st day of the 3rd Ashes cricket test in Perth is kinda fitting (although Im sure it wasnt the band's intention. And yes, Paul does have all the bragging rights so far, but Im fairly thickskinned). However this is not a traditional rendition, the lyrics being tweaked to coicide with the yuletide season. So, this is your Friday Cover Up, another Christmas present, or a warped way to pretend you are in the sun watching the cricket - sound like we cant lose, can we?

Way Yes has just released Herringbone, an EP that mirrors the likes of Fela Kuti, Dirty Projectors and Animal Collective, and is an all round clanging kaleidoscopic bliss bomb of candy. Check it out at Crash Avenue HQ here.
