Hey Brian, I love your show. You’ve introduced me to some great music. That William Shatner cover, though. I got the album last week and laughed out loud when I heard this one.
My favourite track on there is “Together”.
It just gets better and better – that was a supurb show, really enjoyed it. Thanks
P.S. Thanks for introducing Lacivious Biddies to us all – definately going to try to get more of their stuff and it really would be great if you get that interview
This show was great man! The Hey Ya cover really rocks.
Great show! Have you heard Local H’s version of “Toxic”? http://www.localh.com/toxic.mp3 to check it out.
And for x-mas, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s version of “Mr. Heatmiser” is fantastic and available at iTunes!
So, I must have done something wron, pardon me if this posts twice.
Great Show, Brian. Have you heard Local H’s version of “Toxic”? http://www.localh.com/toxic.mp3 to check it out.
Also, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s version of “Mr. Heatmiser is great for X-Mas and available at iTunes.
I have listened for a few weeks, but the Shatner bit really made my day! I am pointing all my friends to Coverville so they can join me in appreciating the wonderful job you’re doing.
Keep it up!
As a big Smiths fan, I think the Lascivious Biddies cover of ‘Ask’ was very cool. I have heard them on Curry’s DSC, and have liked their work, but this song was perfect for Coverville. Belle and Sebastian’s ‘the boy with the thorn in his side’ is also one of the few good Smiths covers. Happy Holidays
