W,G,O,D, # 83 - 9/9/99 - PUB ROCK COVER SONGS!!

The pub rock series of episodes stopped at #79. Shows 80,81,and 82 ,were standard programming,but on this episode ,#83 ,I brought back the U.K. punks ,for another go ,this time doing cover versions of some of their favorite/least favorite songs ,from bands that came before them. A lot of punks covered the beatles for some reason ,and I think the drunken,live, Sham 69 version of "With A Little Help From My Friends",is tops ,on that list ,and also the Damned with ,"Help" (Thanks Captain!) .There is a set of covers by some of the Sluggisha Tapes stable , with only a Fall cover (By Ephedrine Symphony) taking up with the U.K. versions ,the rest are ,well look below and read the tracklist!

Punk covers are always fun (even those Hopeless Records comps).

However I'm not sure of anyone ever covering Bob Segar!
