We've Got It Covered #57

So it's been a pretty good start to the weekened, Josie Long has played Kid Canaveral and Cancel the Astronauts on 6Music this morning, I am off to a BBQ this afternoon and that in addition this I had a great time at last nights Ayetunes gig . It was the first time in ages that I've been out to a gig on a Friday night and not indulged in a beer or two (not unless of course you count Ginger Beers). It was the first time that I had seen Loch Awe and The Last Battle, both of whom impressed me a lot. The Second Hand Marching Band were on top form, but then again they never really fail to put a smile on my face. It was also good to catch up with Adam Stafford to do some more plotting about next months Ayetunes vs Peenko gig.
This weeks cover version comes from a side project from Alistair from the Second Hand Marching Band, who has also been recording some solo material as de Selby. His debut EP is well worth hunting out, I think it's a free download so there's no excuses for not hunting it down. A while back he posted up his cover of Prince's 'If I Was Your Girlfriend', which I think I meant to post in Friday Freebies but forgot. So now to make up for it, here it is in all of its glory, it reminds me a wee bit of a more ramshackle Flight of the Conchords. Although when I mentioned this to him at last weeks RM Hubbert show I don't think he took that as much of a compliment. Fuck it, I like it, even if it does sound a bit like our favourite antipodean duo...
