Here’s the dirty secret that every bloke plugging his Line 6 Variax into a MIDI looper next to the 50 Lions pokie at every outer ‘burbs RSL Club over 28s night already knows to be true.
Playing covers is fun. Really, really, really fun.
It’s that truth that makes Triple J‘s long running Like a Version so damned great, because for all the rearranging, chopping and changing, interpreting, and remixing going on, behind all of that is a group of people having a goddamned blast ripping through a song they’ve loved for eons.
And that joy is absolutely bloody palpable in this morning’s edition, featuring Melbourne outfit Dorsal Fins [Brief Aside: We cannot see their band name without thinking of this:]
With a studio full of pals and instruments, the band went into the nostalgia well and dug out a faithful rendition of Kate Ceberano‘s 1998 local hit “Pash” and it is straight-up FUN ON A BUN.
Big shout out the the vocal harmonies and the horn section, which put the icing on an otherwise super delicious cake.
Happy weekend, friends!
