The Boss

BackdropVaguely jazzy/bluesy gig intro with (eventually) mostly indecipherable lyrics. 'How many mistakes?' You can imagine people dancing a demented sort of jitterbug to this.

60's Pop CIS

BackdropLater to appear as 'Coach and Horses' on Reformation Post TLC, this bare bones version merits its own entry here seeing as its completely unrecognisable from its eventual manifestation. There's not much to it, though, but there you go.

Hungry Freaks, Daddy

BackdropFirst performed in 2006. Not being a Zappa fan, I have no idea what the original's like, but it sure has a catchy riff. I've heard it live in Edinburgh, but it's never been committed to record (yet). The substitution in places of 'Mr Britannica' for 'Mr America' is a neat touch.

Higgle-dy Piggle-dy

BackdropMES's obsession with the Monks continues with this cover for the tribute CD 'Silver Monk Time.' The session version has some interesting percussion, as well as added old lyrical standby, 'long long days.' The 'Way down to heaven' backing vocals are a welcome break from the standard two chord garage riff.
