Bands doing TVP covers

Postby Keg » Thu Feb 14, 2008 10:14 pm

Now and again on Myspace I come across bands who have a TVP cover on their page. I thought I'd create a thread to stick 'em in. Feel free to add more to the list if you come across any.

TVPs cover versions

Postby David Grahame » Sat Sep 01, 2012 8:11 pm

Can't remember the a-side,but the Dutch band Bettie Serveet had a righteous cover of 'Look Back in Anger on a CD single,mid 90's.Raw and treble heavy,as it should always be.

Crayola (Mr Sarandon) has put together a compilation of the covers that the super ace Sarandon recorded and has uploaded it for free download. There's 8 covers, including a great version of "And Don't The Kids Just Love It". Other artistes covered include Swell Maps, the June Brides and the Membranes.

"Kill Other People's Records"

The Sound Of The Shires with a cover of 'Geoffrey Ingram' which is to be the b-side of the bands next single.

I've just stumbled across the fact that Simon Bish & Andy Fonda released an EP of TVP covers back in 2010. Here's their version of "The Silly Things Lovers Do", recorded in poptastic fashion:
