Two cover versions on todays show.
The Ridiculous Trio drag The Stooges' "No Fun" back through time and plant it firmly in the middle of a 1950's U.S. strip club. Maybe that's the life it was always meant to have, the opening track on a Las Vegas grind CD.
The second cover poses a philosophical question. Can a person be said to be covering a song when that same person both co-wrote and performed on the original? Answers to Jah Wobble, who has reworked the 1978 single "Public Image". More of his PIL makeovers are available on Bandcamp.
Speaking of revisiting the past, today's playlist also contains The Umbrellas with a song that could easily have seen them headlining Indie Club back in 1997, even though the tune itself was released in August of this year.
And on with the show...
Notebooks out completists, here's the playlist in full...
