The Ledge #460: Covers
As I stated on tonight’s all-covers episode, I have a folder on my hard drive where I toss in any cool remakes that I accumulate. When that folder is filled then it’s time to do another show of that type. Well, the folder is full, and was actually overflowing after Wednesday’s announcement from Stardumb Records that February 26 will see the release of the K7s tribute to the Ramones’ “Mondo Bizarro” album. Yes, Kurt Baker, Luis Sanchez and others have recorded a song by song remake of the entire album. Another strong collection of covers comes from Drunk Dial Records. “Fake” is a compilation of songs by…well, fake bands from movies and TV. There’s a whole set of quick bursts of greatness from bands such as Pavid Vermin and the Thorazines with Hayley Crusher from that tribute. These are just a few of the highilghts of tonight’s show. If you love power pop, punk, Bob Dylan, Americana, and other mini-genres, tonight’s show is for you. After listening, please go purchase those tracks you enjoy! These great artists deserve to be compensated for their hard work, and every purchase surely helps not only pay their bills but fund their next set of wonderful songs.
