Live Gig Video: Glass Animals cover Kanye West’s ‘Love Lockdown’ for triple j

By on Friday, 4th April 2014 at 4:00 pm

Even if you hate Kanye West, I think you’re going to be pleasantly surprised by this. Glass Animals are down under at the moment, and they decided to rearrange and redo Kanye’s ‘Love Lockdown’ when asked by national Aussie radio station triple j to play a cover for their Like a Version ongoing cover series.

White boy got groove. Watch it below.



MP3 of the Day (and more!) #811: Arctic Monkeys

By on Tuesday, 11th February 2014 at 10:00 am

I’m a big Beatles fan but even I am getting sick of all this 50th anniversary stuff about the Fab Four’s first visit to American shores and their first American television appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. Initially, I would have thought Arctic Monkeys taking this momentous Fabs’ anniversary and playing a cover of one of their songs was a mere publicity stunt. However, when you listen to Alex Turner and co.’s rendering of ‘All My Loving’ – incidentally, one of the songs that the Beatles played on that Ed Sullivan broadcast – at their recent sold out show at New York’s venerated Madison Square Garden, they gave the classic track their own edge by slowly it down massively. Listen to and download the live mp3 from Stereogum here.

As for the ‘more’ aspect of this post, for a little more tangentially related content, Arctic Monkeys performed on the Late Show with David Letterman last month, in the same location that the Beatles did 50 years ago, now dubbed the Ed Sullivan Theater. This live version of ‘Do I Wanna Know?’ is as sneery and swaggery as you might expect. Watch it below.



Live Gig Video: Morrissey pays tribute to Lou Reed, performs at Nobel Peace Prize concert in Oslo

By on Thursday, 12th December 2013 at 4:00 pm

At this stage in his career, there’s probably no grander stage for elder statesman of alt-rock Morrissey to perform on than at the Nobel Peace Prize concert in Oslo, Norway. This all went down last night, and he didn’t disappoint, performing his much talked about cover of the late Lou Reed’s ‘Satellite of Love’, in addition to newer song ‘People Are the Same Everywhere’ and 2004 ‘You Are the Quarry’ vitriolic stomper ‘Irish Blood, English Heart’. Watch the performance below.



MP3 of the Day #801: Cashier No. 9

By on Friday, 6th December 2013 at 10:00 am

It’s been 2 years since Cashier No. 9 released their debut ‘To the Death of Fun’ on Bella Union. I was just wondering the last couple of days when I was writing this post on ‘Goldstar’ on my lyrics interpretation site Music in Notes what the Belfast band were up to these days. Well, we now know they were recently busy recording this cover of Harry Nilsson’s ‘Moonbeam Song’, from his 1971 album ‘Nilsson Schmilsson’. More chill than we’re used to from the folks that gave us ‘Oh Pity’, it’s still nice to know they’re still together. Have a listen and grab the mp3 for free if you like from the Soundcloud widget below.


Video of the Moment #1399: Bruce Springsteen

By on Sunday, 1st December 2013 at 10:00 am

Bruce Springsteen has released a new visual for his version of ‘High Hopes’, the title track for a bits and bobs collection the Boss plans to release next year. Oddly, it’s a cover of a song by LA band Havalinas. Watch the lyric video below, and you’re welcome to have a listen to the original below too.




Live Gig Video: video of Beatles clips and animation, soundtracked by their cover of ‘Words of Love’

By on Monday, 18th November 2013 at 4:00 pm

I really wasn’t sure where to put this ‘new’ Beatles video on TGTF, to be honest. But being a massive Fab Four fan, it had to go somewhere. Clearly, it’s not a live video in the usual sense, but it is a nice collection of clips of the Fabs, along with questionable animation and added colouring (?), all soundtracked by their cover of Buddy Holly’s ‘Words of Love’. This cover version appears on the Beatles’ ‘Live at the BBC Volume 2’ compilation album, out now on 2 CD and vinyl formats. The collection features 40 radio cuts from the band’s many appearances on BBC radio in 1963 and 1964.
