Folks, sometimes your Like a Version doesn’t necessarily need to be a complete tear-down job. Sure, it’s great when acts come in and they’ve taken a song dear to them, reinterpreted it through their own creative visions, and presented something new and fresh; a hot spin on an old favourite. The remixes, the re-arrangements, the re-workings… they’re all well and good. But sometimes, just sometimes, you gotta do what Ball Park Music have done.
Sometimes you’ve gotta come in with an absolute banger, and you’ve gotta thrash that badboy out like it’s 3am in your living room and the record is spinning at ungodly volumes.

Eight in a row, to you. A very good eight in a row to you all.
