Those lovely folks over at Striker Bill have given us a great write-up on their site. They frequently look at all sorts of cover versions by all sorts of musicians and had this to say about our version of the MC5’s ‘Kick Out The Jams’:
“To try to cover this song, long placed in the upper echelon of rock & roll guitar tracks, in this manner is equally a bold statement and an exercise in insanity. Yet the band makes it work, and the results are surprisingly compelling and mesmeric.”
A rather nice review, I think it’s fair to say. Thank you very much indeed.

We’re releasing an EP of covers this Friday the 13th. It’s called ‘Imitating The Jams’ and the tracklisting is as follows:
1. Kick Out The Jams (MC5 Cover)
2. Some Candy Talking (Jesus and Mary Chain Cover)
3. Imitating Angels (Nymphs Cover)
4. Sailin’ On (Bad Brains Cover)
As well as being available on our bandcamp page, the EP will be available on Loudr, itunes, Amazon, and a whole bunch of other internet downloading sites we’ve never really heard of or used before. How exciting.
The EP was self-recorded and was mixed and mastered by our pal Ariel Lerner at Little Wolf Studios.
Would love to hear what you think about our versions of these killer songs.
