31 Songs Of Halloween: Lemonheads: Skulls

19.10.16



This is what happens when one amazing band covers another...

Lemonheads' version of Skulls, a Misfits classic, was originally included on the US version of their 1990 EP, Favourite Spanish Dishes. It was an extra track to the two originals and the Stone Poneys cover, together with yet another cover, New Kids On The Block's Step By Step.

Dando's band was always good at doing covers and they're mostly known for those rather than their originals, at least to the mainstream masses, and the laid back, acoustic version of their on Skulls is surely no exception.

Both the original and the cover were issued as a limited edition 7-inch single, as part of the Side By Side series on Record Store Day 2013, in order to celebrate records, record stores and aggressive commercialism...

The custom made video that follows may be a little distracting in regards to the music, but this is what we get for now...
