With the Concert For Diana programmes only freshly tucked away, details surrounding the forthcoming Pixies tribute record appear to have developed somewhat, albeit without some of the names that were initially slated to contribute to the release. That said, I forget who those were.
Somewhat peculiarly, Laundromat Records have announced the list of twenty covers, only to state that around 14 or 15 of these will make Dig For Fire's final cut.
Bedroom Walls - 'Stormy Weather'
British Sea Power - 'Caribou'
Bunnies - 'Alec Eiffel'
Charles Douglas - 'Bone Machine' David Miller - 'Manta Ray'
Dylan In The Movies - 'Down To The Well'
Elk City - 'Monkey Gone To Heaven'
Fashion Victims - 'Hey'
Joe Harvard Band - 'In Heaven (Everything Is Fine)'
John Strohm - 'Where Is My Mind?'
Joy Zipper - 'Wave of Mutilation'
Julie Peel - 'The Happening'
Knife and Fork (feat. E.D. Feldman) - 'Motorway To Roswell'
Mogwai - 'Gouge Away'
Morning Theft - 'Ana'
OK Go - 'Gigantic'
PC Munoz - 'I Bleed'
The Commons - 'Here Comes Your Man'
The Rosebuds - 'Break My Body'
They Might Be Giants - 'Havalina'
The release will include unique artwork, accompanying 7", badges and the chance to win an poster autographed by one of the acts, and should be available by November.
DiScuss: Choice pickings? Sea Power gets this vote. Would Kim Deal like OK Go?
