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.

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.

Tindersticks have covered "You'll Have To Scream Louder" on their new LP of covers. I like their version.
