david coverversion: fleetwood mac vs. seaweed

seaweed hit the northwest scene about the same time i was getting my first pubes. lumped in the same scene as quicksand and mudhoney and jawbreaker, i first heard these cats in the movie 'clerks'. among the many excellent tracks on the 'clerks' soundtrack--alice in chains' 'got me wrong', stabbing westwards' 'violent mood swings', the jesus lizard's 'panic in cicero', those bad religion and golden smog songs--was seaweed's sweet take on fleetwood mac's 'go you own way'. you all know fleetwod mac right? in between losing members to kid fingering cults and having records that push 4 million units for the man considered failures to the lead singer needing coke blown up her ass in the studio, fleetwod mac has written some excellent tunes. from the billion selling 'rumours' comes this track. and the other fleetwood mac track, which happens to be my favorite of theirs. the other seaweed song is from their 1995 album 'spanaway' and happens to be my favorite of their tunes.

fleetwood mac - go your own way
seaweed - go your own way

fleetwood mac - second hand news
seaweed - start with

go buy whatcha likes and delete whatcha don't

You wouldn't happen to know who supplied the female backing vocals, would you? I've only heard a handful of Seaweed songs, and no other female vocals among them, yet they sound kind of familiar. It's been bothering me for a while.
