    I was listening to 6music the other day and the very early morning fella, the one before Sean Keaveney said that Florence had recorded either Dog Days or Kiss with a Fist with her first band, could that where the cover confusion is coming from?

    Why is it shrouded in mystery then? WHY DOES NO ONE KNOW WHERE IT IS FROM?!

    Kiss With A Fist was certainly recorded way before Florence's version - a band called Ashok played it at Offline in 2007, and the track had been up on their MySpace site for ages (it's gone now). They called it 'happy slap.'

    I much preferred their version - it was more hoedown-y and the female singer gave it more energy - but it did sit rather uneasily in their jazzy/funky set. The band are from the same area as Florence so maybe she wrote it with them, or maybe she covered it.

    Agree, early drawers. Like the latter, somewhat meatier, versions of Rabbit Heart.

    You can see the influences straight orf Ms Bush, Tori > usual suspects, I suppose. No bad thing.


    Camberwell gal, went to JAGS, I believe.

    She was incredible on Jonathon Ross! Not seen or heard anything else but I was left open mouthed at how good her whole performance was and how amazingly long and perfect her legs were hehe

    Ackshully. I think you'll find I managed to come up with more information, like the name of the band, the rough date and original song title.

    Burnside, that's a fantastic name :cool:

    All I've knowingly heard of F&theM is a really bad version she did of the Killers "when you were young" the other day, however my mate keeps raving and raving about her so I owe him a listen to her, so I'll listen and get back but my decision on whether she is good or not is FINAL, ok, world?

    Well, it's nice that she's trying, but the music just doesn't cut it atm.

    That footage of her performance at Glastonbury in which she climbed the stage column was atrocious, too.
