I love covers! The way a pop song can be bent to create something new that changes the way you hear the original. So it’s very satisfying to hear covers of my songs. Here are a few recent covers of some very old songs:
The Arcturus recorded a version of Bicycle Thieves’ Different Movies. Be sure to check out the other songs by The Arcturus. “Worst Ever” is one of my favorites.
Dino Guy recorded three songs from the Next Window era including No More Than The Rain and The Right Thing To Say. It’s especially cool to hear these two because they never got a proper demo treatment, and were only played live a handful of times.
Big thanks to the responsible parties for sharing these recordings; it means a lot to me. I encourage anyone with the inclination to create covers, mashups, or parodies of anything on this site, and will happily post them here.

Hey, its kind of bittersweet to hear other guys doing your stuff. I made a conscious decision a long time ago to shelve my musical aspirations, I mean If your stuff wasn’t good enouth for “them” they could f*** off.
In fairness to “them”, as far as I can remember I never gave them a chance to reject or accept my stuff, i.e. “sending out” demos or whatever. But hell yeah, f*** them anyway, they should have come looking for me 🙂
