Alright, time for some discussion on what yr all listening too. My iTunes inventory is getting a little stale so I'm up for some inspiration.

Currently loving The Drones' album "Havilah".. incredible songwriting and some of the best recorded guitars and drum I've heard in a long time. I'm a little late to the party with this album but it's on high rotation at the moment and will probably stay there a while. I've seen these guys live once (Fowlers, Adelaide) and fortunately they're incredible on stage too. Can't wait to see them again.

Yeah, that clip is gold! Bit scratchy, but.

And the Corpse Grinders!

Gotta love when cool weird shit sneaks into the mainstream. In any capacity.

Gives us all hope!

Just heard this, a new release, and a “b-side “ at that! Brings to mind the eternal question, which is better, the original or the cover? Let’s hear your fave covers.

A classic deconstructed and turned into something entirely different. (Not a bad writer either) Try "Just Kids"

That’s ace Blowfly, have heard many overs of that but that is a standout. That Patti has some set of pipes. And Facto, that Nouvelle Vague track is a treat.

IMHO you can hear a Cure influence in some really early Dino Jr stuff like this song of Lou's

Especially the start, drum and bass line even some of the guitar and then the Flanger effect at about 2:00 and how Lou sings here.

I find The Cure fair to middling myself, Info. And ol' Lou's a bit of a fop.

Covers are a tricky business.

Um Facto it's not a cover, Lou is the bass player of Dino Jr he sings on the very odd Dino jr song, I'm a fan of some of his mid era seBADoh stuff but not really his Dino Jr songs bar that one.

It's the first song from the first Dino jr album, where they were still finding their sound as Lou and J transitioned from their previous hardcore band Deep wound's sound to a new expanded sound.

Point was you can hear some different influences in their first album and surprisingly the Cure were one of them, hence i guess why they covered a Cure song on their second album.

I love the cure, but i do like the singles albums more i find it hard to listen to their studio albums from start to finish and i saw them live once, my only stadium gig I've been too and man it was boring, especially sitting down and so far away from the stage.

Here is Dino Jr covering one of their old Deep Wound songs (lou is singing but they did originally have another singer, and J was on drums in deep wound, Lou or guitar)
