david coverversion: the smiths vs. placebo vs. nick drake

pigeon kicker nicholas is a fan of the smiths. he tried telling me that it is in fact 'good' and should be listened to because of the subtle humor and morrisey's uncanny ability to make nerds look even nerdier by liking them as well. once upon a time i read the track listing for a recent morrisey solo album, and anyone who names a song 'all the lazy dykes' in this ridiculously politically correct world probably isn't all bad. chronic cockshiners placebo gave a technologically updated version of the song for a b-side to the single 'nancy boy' from their debut self-titled record. placebo also squeezed off a take of the late nick drake's 'been smoking too long'. nick drake is great and will probably get his own post someday soon.

the smiths - bigmouth strikes again
placebo - bigmouth strikes again
placebo - been smoking too long
nick drake - been smoking too long

go buy whatcha likes and delete whatcha don't
