Do the Vampire

A plain-jane cover for The World Famous.

I had a couple of hours to kill yesterday morning, and I've been thinking about this album a lot lately, and I had seen TWF's comment ... so I knocked this together.

It's pretty straightforward, a quick mostly-faders-up mix, warts and all (although to call the vocal tuning "aggressive" would probably be an understatement).

As a bonus, I learned that my new-ish recording space is so dead that I can record shouty vocals from two feet away without any reflections.

So good. A brilliant song and a great cover. Thanks for doing this!

Never istened to Superdrag but I'm here because uncleozzy = guaranteed good time.

I especially like the quiet tremelo-y part coming out of the solo. And then the crunchy guitar comes back in all staccato! Yesss

Glad you guys dig it. There are so many good songs on this album, I just grabbed the first one that was a) mostly just a rock song; and b) in my vocal range. I really ought to have done "Shuck & Jive," but the vocal / sleighbell bridge would have been a little much.

(Although really I just wanted to do the instrumental section that comes before the last chorus of "Amphetamine" over and over again. Ba da da daa... ba da da daaaaaa.)

Rockin'. Guess I need to revisit these guys. Sometimes I forget how great power pop can be.
