On a Night Like This
Got inspired by hearing the Los Lobos cover of the song on KUVO and liked it so much I cut a demo. [more inside]
SKA/BAND - Caledonia Mission
The first track I've finished in a project of doing ska covers of The Band songs [more inside]
Breathe-Pigs-Cigar-Breathe (Reprise)-Great Gig in the Sky
A re-do of a Pink Floyd medley thing I posted a few months ago -- we got better at playing it and added a bit at the end. [more inside]
Spidey sense tingled. Dashed this off.
Paint it Black
For the request raffle, a cover of The Rolling Stones' Paint it Black in the surf rock guitar style of Dick Dale. [more inside]
She Talks To Rainbows
A Ramones cover from the latest Red On Strike album. For comparison, here's our previous attempt at recording this song, and a video of us doing it live a couple weeks ago.
I've was in a bit of a Beatles mood last weekend, and recorded this as well as my previous post of "And Your Bird Can Sing". It's been fun to redo the songs with my arsenal of sampled orchestra, etc. I'm not the greatest singer, but I've learned a lot listening to the original, and working with my own voice.
She Talks To Rainbows
A Ramones cover, from their last album Adios Amigos.
Hold It There (Within You, Without You)
Part 3 of a live 27 minute improv. This is the final 12 minutes. [more inside]
We Were Talking (Within You, Without You)
Minutes 6 thru 15 of a 27-minute improv, in which Fred Surprises Dennis and I by singing the melody to Within You, Without You, by The Beatles, followed by a musical conversation. [more inside]
Since I've Been Loving You
Pretty straight-up cover of the Zep song. Live rehearsal recording. [more inside]
The Card Cheat (live)
A cover of the Clash song, recorded live last Saturday night in Pomona, CA.
One For The Road - Long Live Rock (Live)
The end of our set Saturday night, recorded from the crowd on my TASCAM DR-07. We opened up for East Bay Ray's new band The Killer Smiles, the band was pretty excited about it, and I think the energy really comes through. [more inside]
Black Dog – Unfinished
This is a little something I cooked together earlier this summer for the fun of it. I never finished it, but thought it might be fun to share anyway. [more inside]
I'm Losing You (Live)
As the lady says, this is a cover of a John Lennon tune recorded live last Friday night in Pomona.
Forty-Six & 2
Recording from my vocal exam at school last Tuesday, of the Tool-song Forty-Six & 2. [more inside]
aint no rest for the wicked - cover
Cover of cage the elephant's song aint no rest for the wicked.
A cover of the Kinks song
Hurt So Bad (Linda Ronstadt cover)
I always wanted to hear this Linda Ronstadt song covered by Garbage. [more inside]
Goodbye Horses (cover)
Here is a cover of Q Lazzarus's "Goodbye Horses" made famous I'm told in Silence of the Lambs and Clerks 2.
run to you (bryan adams cover)
No, seriously. Just for fun, I decided to do this cover song to test out some drum stuff. Thought I'd share this while I work on some new songs...
I basically put the words to Hallelujah to an acoustic chill rock guitar thing. and this happened. [more inside]
Hoshi ni Negai wo (Wish Upon a Star)
Perhaps a cover but more a self-made karaoke of Cocco's "Hoshi ni Negai wo".
Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere
A cover of the Neil Young tune.
I Don't Want to be Here
Recorded back in '01 for the Chalkhills.org King For a Day XTC tribute compilation CD. Written by Andy Partridge, but never recorded by XTC. This was a one-off project, but eventually led to the formation of my XTC tribute band, and we played it live once or twice. [more inside]
Whats Christmas without Jinglebell Rock? [more inside]
Stone Cold Bush (Live Version)
Another shitty cover. [more inside]
Cover of a song made popular by Dionne Warwick, I think. [more inside]
Are You Gonna Go My Way
A few days ago I had a vision that my band did a cover of Are You Gonna Go My Way. Then my band did a cover of Are You Gonna Go My Way. This is that cover. [more inside]
Rock n' roll song (about rock n' roll)
We know that rock about rock rarely rocks. And we know that rock about rock about rock rocks. But how about covers of rock about rock about rock? [more inside]
Tonight Hit the Bong With Me
A very dumb cover of Tonight You Belong To Me, written by Lee David, 1926.
Recorded live to 24-track digital at our most recent show. My band The Dukes of Simpleton is an XTC tribute project, so no we didn't write it, but I'm pretty sure we're the only people playing any XTC songs live in a 1000 mile radius. [more inside]
Punk "Edelweiss" with the original Nazi lyrics. Someone else posted their version of this recently... [more inside]
Ask For Me By Name
A little alterna-power-pop from the 90s. [more inside]
This is a lazy pseudo-live cover of the Bruce Springsteen song, recorded on a whim a couple of years ago.
A Magnetic Fields cover I recorded recently. I've been working on my singing for a while, and I was mostly wondering if anyone had any suggestions on where to go from here in improving it? Any other feedback is also welcome, of course.
A Velvet Underground cover from our recent recording session
Twist and Shout [The Beatles]
Continuing with the theme from yesterday, (and as promised), here's my version of "Twist and Shout." Is it any good? That's for you to decide. I hope it is. Perhaps "I'll Get You" is next?
Hold Me Tight [The Beatles]
In hono(u)r of the anniversary of the nucleus of the Beatles coming together, I bring you a cover of a song that both Lennon and McCartney derided as not all that good, but I always kinda liked. Maybe tomorrow, I'll upload my version of "Twist and Shout." :-)
A cover of the first verse and chorus of the Gnarls Barkley song, primitively recorded live a while back when I had a cold. My wife was really into the song and I recorded this for her as a goof, but it came out kinda good.
Power of Love
Thanks to two class cancellations due to ice storms in the Capital, I was able to arrange and record this Valentine's day treat. Imagine Huey Lewis, baritone, with a banjo.
This is a Bad Brains cover from our collection of covers called Our History is Your Kitsch. Go ahead and download the whole album because it's free as the wind.
In the Aeroplane Over the Sea
A Neutral Milk Hotel cover, and the first studio recording with my new group. Coming soon to your town!
Ana Ng (acoustic)
This is an acoustic cover of the wonderful TMBG song Ana Ng, done on a four track recorder many years ago. Though I did once see "I don't want the world, I just want your half" painted on a bridge (it was really surprising and cool to discover), we substituted "Homies '88" in its place because we had recently seen that on a bridge and thought it a bit absurd that someone took the time and effort to paint such a doofy message.
Welcome to the Jungle (acoustic)
This is an acoustic cover of the very excellent They Might Be Giants song Welcome to the Jungle. As a gag, the beginning instrumental bit copies the Guns N' Roses song Welcome to the Jungle. Though my old "band" did this, just about every instrument on this track (including the backup vocals) was done by one bandmember.
