We could be sister and brother.

Awesome local music blog Radio Free Chicago has an all-cover podcast available for your listening pleasure here. I will respectively disagree with the writer's assertion that Nick Cave's cover of Pulp's "Disco 2000" is particularly genius, as I've long found it surprisingly and disappointingly tedious, but to each his or her own, yes? (Particularly considering some of the cheesy or otherwise questionable covers I actually like, no?) Still, you might hear covers there you've never heard and you might love the Nick Cave track, so what are you waiting for?

Hmmm. Podcasting...

But this particular cover version is tedious to the pint of sels-indulgent

I'm with you. I found his cover to be boring. It's such a 'Jarvis' song to begin with - a cover of it is really going to have to ramp up something special. Similarly, as much as people thought it was funny, Shatner's cover of "Common People" was funny once, and never worth re-listening to.

i was always under the impression that the nick cave version was tedious and atrocious on purpose... like to take the piss out of bad cover songs (ie, the william shatner one).
