“History Revised” Cover Version Special – Extended Playlist 030510 – 107.3FM

This week, we lifted the lid once more off our worm farm of unholy covers, bringing you the beauty of the source by diving into the cesspool of re-interpretation. Electronic cover versions and covers of electronic originals to fascinate and devastate, including Terre Thaemlitz’ rubato take on Devo and Telex rocking Bill Haley and his Comets. Dare to do it differently!
