So Fucked Up have been winning a lot of plaudits lately but, really, did anyone expect pretty much every credible musician on the planet to turn up and collaborate with the Toronto hardcore-punks at their mammoth twelve hour performance in New York recently?
The star-studded list includes J. Mascis, Les Savy Fav's Tim Harrington, Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koening and Vivian Girls, but, best and most surprising of all, check out the video below for a guest appearance from none other than Moby on a cover of Ramones classic 'Blitzkrieg Bop'.
