It’s our 10th blog in our popular 7’s Jukebox -series! Today we play you some classic stuff and two mindblowing covers!
We start with the mighty Posies, our big big favourite! All of us were at Tavastia Club back in 1995 when the band first visited Finland and still are huge fans! This one’s from 1993 and still sound better than life..
Next up is teenage indie wonder’s Noise Addict from Australia, with young Ben Lee singin about Evan Dando. I Wish I Was Him is such a feel good classic, no wonder Mike D signed them t Grand Royal and Kathleen Hanna covered the track later,
Now a cover to kill for! Royal Trux doing Money For Nothing by the Dire Straits! Actually the first time I met Soliti label boss mr. Triani was at SXSW in the late 90’s and I think we both were at Royal Trux gig there, that was the first time I heard them playing the cover, thank god they relased the track as a b-side on Liar 7″ later. Are you ready??
Last one is a split cover ep from Chemical People & Big Drill Car from 1991. Chemical People covering Kiss and Big Drill Car doing Cheap Trick. I guess Gene Simmons has taken the Chemical People’s Getaway version from YouTube, so here’s the great Surrender for you.. If you find the Chemical People version somewhere from the web, please tell us. Otherwise you just need to come to our Jukebox nite later…
And finally our very own Ei ole Helppoo for you, we are thrilled that Finnish national radio has played it a few times and lotsa blogs been giving us great support! Feel free to share it and download it free from Soliti’s Soundcloud!
