Pick a cover .. Make BSP play it.

Things are some what slow around here, so lets play a game…

Everyone picks a cover song we would wish the band would play… then when we have a good amount we vote .. We then hassle the band until they play the winner live..


I’l go first ..

SOS by Abba …

Heh heh. After consideration, I've plumped for Justified & Ancient (All Bound For MuMu) Land by The KLF. I bet Hammy could do a cracking Tammy Wynette.

I'll accept any other KLF or JAMMs related tune...perhaps not Doctorin' The Tardis due to the unpleasant associations with the glitterbeat base to the track.

They could easily turn this into a monstrous 27 minute encore.

Land of Dreams by Anna Domino is a quirky song that came into my head I think would sound great reworked by BSP.

That was after from a more selfish point of view, I thought of Teeth and Lips

Of course, this has all been suggested before. Nothing new under the sun, etc.

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=5627

Several Echo & The Bunnymen suggestions, of course. No one went for Broke My Neck, which would give Yan an excuse to whip out the cello and give it what for.

When a Warm Wind Blows Through the Grass and Come Wander With Me suggest they could pull that off.

I'd like to hear them do Happy Hunting Ground by Sparks.

Ummm... Blood Of A Young Wolf by Buck 65.

A selfish choice & an off the wall choice of a track & artiste that I love. I'm sure BSP would rework it brilliantly, there's some great lyrics on it.

Here are my suggestions. Songs that I think BSP could bring something new to, but at the same time not sounding a million miles away from something they could have written themselves in the first place.

Generally obscure as fuck, of course, but isn’t that partially the reason we do these kind of things anyway?

Submarine: Learning To Live With Ghosts
The Sperm Wails: The Boy Hairdresser
Sidi Bou Said: Hyde
Withered Hand: Santa Cova (sung by Hamilton)
Throwing Muses: Snailhead

Don’t think I’ve been around here for a while. Hope you’ve all been keeping well.
