I don't need you to tell me what's going down.

I'm not in a talky mood.

  • Class "Yuko & Hiro" (Blur cover)
    Many thanks to Peter of Class for sending this my way, as I could not locate my copy anywhere.

  • The Droyds "North Country Boy" (The Charlatans [UK] cover)

  • Ether Aura "I Speak Every Word" (Curve cover)

  • Katscan "Connection" (Elastica cover)

  • Eläkeläiset "Käänteishumppa (Tattva)" (Kula Shaker cover)
    Ah, crazy ol' Eläkeläiset.

  • Hinterland "For Love" (Lush cover)
    Barely sounds like a cover, but whatever. It's one of the most listenable tracks of the mediocre shoegaze tribute albums Never Lose that Feeling Vols. 1&2

  • Gillian Welch "Black Star" (Radiohead cover)
    I love Gillian and was very pleased to discover this.

  • CelTikA "Creep" (Radiohead cover)
    There are a million and half "Creep" covers out there (and a million and a half Radiohead covers in general) and I likely have most of them, so I tried to pick one you'd be less than likely to see someplace else. And you know you were craving Venezuelan power metal anyhow.

  • Amanda Rogers "No Surprises" (Radiohead cover)

  • Elvis Costello & the Attractions "What Do I Do Now" (Sleeper cover)

  • Year of the Rabbit "I Wanna Be Adored" (Stone Roses cover)
    This version is okay, but I'm a bit more partial to singer-songwriter Joshua English's version, which you can download for free at his site.

  • Mr. Hopkinson's Computer "Fools Gold" (Stone Roses cover)
    This cover makes me so very happy.

  • Mick Thomas & the Sure Thing "Made of Stone" (Stone Roses cover)

  • I Am the World Trade Center "Shoot You Down" (Stone Roses cover)

  • Flying Saucer Attack "The Drowners" ([The London] Suede cover)

  • Anthony Wong "Saturday Night" ([The London] Suede cover)

  • Mountain Goats "Trash" ([The London] Suede cover)

  • Of Montreal "Alright" (Supergrass cover)
    I wasn't going to post this because I think a lot of people have in the past and the quality isn't great, but it was either this or those god-awful versions of "Alright" and "Richard III" from the Donkey Konga games.

  • Scala & Kolacny Brothers "Bittersweet Symphony" (Verve cover)

  • Ben Harper "The Drugs Don't Work" (Verve cover)

    Just a quick note six months after the original post date: the band called Celtika covering Radiohead's "Creep" isn't Finnish, believe it or not, they're actually Venezuelan... they don't have a webpage yet that I know of, but there's a profile in

    Thanks for correcting me. That's really weird that I typed Finnish since I knew they were from Venezuela. I'm often thinking about Scandinavian bands and it must have been a Freudian slip or something!

    How come I can't download tracks anymore? There are no links. Is my browser being weird again?

    Because this post you're commenting on is more than 6 months old and I only keep songs active for a week. See Disclaimer No. 4 to the right.

    Ah, I hadn't spotted that. It just popped up in my RSS reader for some reason.
