- Cover versions you prefer to the original.
Here’s some pretty fecked-up covers, from Slovenia’s finest; Laibach:
And a particularly warped version of a Kim Wilde classic! (Aleigh, you may not want to hear this one)

Shiny Toy Guns rendition of Depeche Modes ‘Stripped’ is on a current well used playlist in our house at the mo.
If you can handle Bluegrass then Iron Horse album of Led Zeppelin covers is worth a go though I know one person who will be unlocking the gun cabinet for that suggestion. . . as well as several tracks on the Johny Cash album.
Another vote for Jeff Buckleys Hallelulah too.Posted 9 years agoclareymorrisSubscriber

I like Skinhead O’Connor’s version of ’Streets of London’…
Funnily enough, Sid Vicious’ version, which is COMPLETELY different, is also bloody good.Posted 9 years ago
Are you completely brain-dead? Jack White, better than the incomparable diminutive yet disproportionate Dolly Parton?
Wash your mouth out, stand in the corner, and go and have a good, hard think about your BLASPHEMY!!!!!!!!
(Calm, RudeBoy; calm…)
White Stripes have done some good covers, mind. ‘One More Cup Of Coffee’ is a corker.Posted 9 years ago
Cheers Rudeboy – still no sound on my computer but copied your french “paint it black” ’til when I get it working/get a new one. I’t better be good! 😉
As far as Jack White goes his Jolene is OK (although I do like Dolly myself) and still not as good as the Sisters of Mercy version. The White Stripes “I just don’t know what to do with myself” is f*n fantastic though. As is Death Letter (posted above)

right, let’s get back onto The Sisters…
I’ve seen them do Comfortably Numb live – runs nicely into Some Kind Of Stranger, which of course is my preferred part of the segwey…(sp)
I do believe Mr Eldritch is a fan of “our” favourite Australian songstress too… :-s
This Mortal Coil’s version of Song To The Siren is pretty f***ing good too
Not that bothered about Bauhaus’ Ziggy thoughPosted 9 years ago
Good luck covering she sells sanctuary (Some things are holy , like why you never hear any good Smiths covers :wink:)
the music’s easy. The voice is a different beast 😉 I’m on drums so can’t be held responsible for that though…

Seen it myself, maybe we was stood together, I was the one in a black and white paisley print shirt f@cked on red label t.bird and speed. Not enough clues…. that could have been any of us!
Nice to know you old goths are out there! Like I said good luck with playing She Sells..Let me know when you’re gigging, would be worth a watch.Posted 9 years ago
