Glyph is worse than some and better than others. He believes that life is just one damned thing after another, that only pop music can save us now, and that mercy is the mark of a great man (but he's just all right). Nothing he writes here should be taken as an indication that he knows anything about anything.

    As befits inveterate road dogs and jammers, BtS do a ridiculous amount of quality covers – they’ve actually done entire sets of nothing but covers (both obscure and well-known) a couple times; I’ve never caught one of those myself. I already linked a few classics in the post. Here’s some more (sound quality’s not always great, but hey).

          Yeah, real west coast punk-funk. They came out of the same scene as the Chili Peppers, No Doubt, Thelonious Monster etc. One of the little mini scenes that died in the wake of Nirvana’s success. I first saw them opening for Jane’s in ’89, with Toad the Wet Blanket on the bill too.

          Nah, couldn’t spot myself.Report
