    Very interesting version!
    Not quite to my taste but very original.

    I don't know if anyone consider these "covers" in the traditional sense, but there's a little group I like in the US, called the Ephemeral String Band, and they've done a lot of versions of Sacred Harp songs which I really like. Unfortunately they've only done them as youtube vids recorded on shoddy cameras, and not an album of them or anything.



    Edit: I lie, there's a proper recording on bandcamp

    It's not really good, and it's a remix rather than a cover, but it's certainly unusual:

    I was just looking for a video for Love's Seven is Seven (prob my fav Love track) and came across this mad cover by Alice Cooper: speed-Kraftwerk backing track with metal guitar on top and the bizarre vid has Alice shadow boxing in some red y-fronts :thumbs:.... seems Alice was up to some pretty wacky drum machine stuff in the early 80s...slightly cabaret....doesnt really work but its entertaining
