and I were going through an arrangement for our first cover tune. We both have the same attitude regarding covers: if you can’t add something new, if you can’t say something new, if you can’t do anything new with it, you should leave it alone.

Yes, I’m looking directly at you, Michael Bolton.

Trent Reznor’s covers are amazing. I draw inspiration from Mr. Nails’ covers of Adam Ant and Queen as examples of how to do a cover song right.

Hopefully, this weekend, we’ll have the proper technology to record a rough demo that will include drums, bass, keyboards, guitar and voice. Hopefully.

Keep your ears open and your fingers crossed.

More Awful Lot
