Tuesday Cover Up - Thank God The Captain's Still Breathing

Normally I do covers on a Friday, if I do them at all. But on Friday something awful happened - an idol of mine, Slint guitarist David Pajo, attempted suicide. He survived. He called out for help via a heart-wrenching note on his social media feeds. Nevertheless it makes you realise how close people can be yet how far away they can seem to you, and vice versa, unless you remain emotionally close to them at all times. I don't often put super faithful covers up here, but Ex-Breathers did 'Good Morning, Captain' the other night, and its pretty much unfuckwithable, so it stands. I'm thinking of you Pajo, and all those who feel alone - you are never alone.
