I'm Your Puppet-that Box Tops song is too good. I think it's begging for a cover- ed O is the obvious choice, maybe a Touch-Me-Nots, or Sunday Sinners, LAMPS could destroy a tune like that if they decided to take a soulful bend.

I've wanted to hear what Guitar Wolf would do with "Scream" by Ralph Nielsen and the Chancellors, or their version of "Search and Destroy"(or "I Wanna be your Dog").

There are covers that I know exist and want to hear, like the Damned's version of "White Riot" and Firestarter's version of "Janie Jones".

That IS a cover version. James & Bobby Purify did the original and it was a hit in 1966 (Though it is a Penn/Oldham song).

Guess I coulda done some research there- everyone has covered that song

it's still a great song
and the Rock*a*teens were pretty fucking good (Golden Time is a great album)

and the question remains- who do you want to hear cover what?

Mouserocket doing "10538 Overture" by Electric Light Orchestra

I don't really like Marilyn Manson or any techo metal band or artist like him, but someone like that could make an assload of money with a solid cover of "Run For Your Life" by The Beatles.

Goodnight Loving "Have You Seen My Baby?"

Speaking of Goodnight Loving, "Sunny Girlfriend", sung by Andy Harris.

Poison Idea's cover of "We Got the Beat" always made me want to hear the Go-Go's cover PI's "Just to Get Away."
Posted: Jul 2, 2007 4:35 pm
 
Ed O should cover "It Tears Me Up" by Dan Penn.

Nice one.

I'm Your Puppet-that Box Tops song is too good. I think it's begging for a cover...or Sunday Sinners.

Funny you say that...the last time the Mystery Girls played we played that song, and now Jordan is in the Sunday Sinners...it'd be easy to get them to do that I think.

I would like to be able to purchase a Wild Man Fischer tribute album on Goner or In The Red.

Or a Monkees tribute album on either of those labels...

Cheater Slicks -- Kissin' Cousins

Motor Head Baby - Motorhead
Posted: Jul 3, 2007 6:37 am
 
Raspberries - "Bummer Bitch" or "Just Head"
Posted: Jul 3, 2007 8:20 am
 
I always thought that Cheater Slicks should cover the Chrome tune that's subtitled "A Cold Clammy Bombing". Dana Hatch screaming "A cold clammy bombing will shit on your town" would be about perfect.

all my favorite songs will eventually be covered by me.

Goodnight Loving, "Sunny Girlfriend", sung by Andy Harris.
Jay Reatard- Randy Scouse Git
the Lamps-Last Train To Clarksville

Clearly, this is an idea that needs consideration...
Posted: Jul 4, 2007 6:14 pm
 
Wreckless Eric should do the MST3000 theme song
Posted: Jul 5, 2007 9:57 am
 
Lamps should do "When Fate Deals Its Mortal Blow." At their own pace. They'd be able to make their own, I think, which is why I like most o' my fave covers.
Posted: Jul 5, 2007 10:01 am
 
And the Marked Men shoulda done a Raxola song and Clone Defects shoulda done "Monkey See, Monkey Do." Cheater Slicks should do warped extended version of "Headin' for the TX Border." Hunches should've done "Red Asphalt" by Red Asphalt. Or Pere Ubu. Yeah, Ubu. Shoulda done it. Coulda ruined/ruled it.

"An American Tale" theme song done by Jay Reatard. I think Its called "Somewhere out there." Just cos the more that I have thought about it Jay kinda looks like Feivel. So hed have to dress up like him too. For good effect!
Posted: Jul 12, 2007 1:33 am
 
you riatard

he looked like Feivel cause he was dressed like him with the bandana and all

and you just wanna do it with him

I ran the Last Train to Clarksville idea by Monty (Lamps) and he said he'd pass the idea onto the resta the group! Mentioned the I'm Your Puppet idea too, but no reply on that. He said he wants to do the Bee Gees I Close My Eyes if sumbody'll teach em the notes n shit...so if anybody knows that...
