Amos - SLG, Therpay 2nd, rest is pretty much awful...
I found that unless you really go for the tribute bands, its hard to cover the strangs succesfully. Look at Hugh doing stranglerssongs, to me it doesn work. It just has to have thát bass, those keys, that whole undescribablt strangelrsatmosphere we love.......

I thought that my band's (The Deep) cover versions of Sweden, Hey (Rise Of The Robots) and Vietnamerica were the best but not many of you have heard them............... :grin:

Fly straight with shameless plug of The Deep's .............www.myspace.com/thedeepwales :grin: :grin:

I quite like Prongs version of "Grip" and Violent Femmes did "No More Heroes". Has anybody head "No more gay bars" which is a cross between Electric 6's "Gay Bar" and "Heroes" which is amusing.
