Random Cover Song: Catch-22 – “American Pie” (Don Mclean)

Posted by Bizarro Dustin on Thursday, January 22, 2015 at 11:45 AM (PST)

Cover songs are like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get. We here at Dying Scene love hearing punk bands do their own take on other band’s songs. Sometimes they pull off amazing interpretations of old classics, sometimes they’re not much more than humble tributes to a fellow artist, and other times they’re just downright laughable renditions of otherwise great songs. Good or bad. Intriguing or mundane. We’ll let you be the judge.

Today’s cover comes from New Jersey ska punks Catch-22 and their cover of Don Mclean’s “American Pie”… or more accurately, their cover of the chorus of “American Pie”. The original version appeared on Mclean’s 1971 album American Pie and is 8 and a half minutes long, while the Catch-22 version appears on their 1999 EP Washed Up!  (and again on its expanded 2001 release as Washed Up and Through the Ringer, and is just the song’s chorus several times over for 2 minutes.

You can listen to both versions of “American Pie” below.

Georgian ska-punk act The Taj Motel Trio are a new discovery for me and considering how damn good they are I’m a little shocked I hadn’t come across them before.  Think early Streetlight Manifesto or Catch 22.  Anyway, they came to my attention because they’re releasing a new 7-inch on January 14th titled “4 songs, 7 Inches” which consists of 3 original tracks and one cover of NOFX’s “All Outta Angst”. Do yourself a favor and check out the album’s first track “Burn It Down!” below.

You can pre-order “4 Songs, 7 Inches” on The Taj Motel Trio’s website.

Kemuri to release new album through Asian Man Records

Posted by bob9746 on Thursday, January 8, 2015 at 1:11 PM (PST)

Asian Man Records owner Mike Park has announced the label will be releasing a new album from Japanese ska-punk veterans Kemuri this April!

The album is titled Mirai wa Akarui, and the first track they’ve made available for streaming originally appeared on the band’s 2007 full-length Blastin’. That, combined with the fact that the band’s latest album Rampant was released just a few months ago, leads me to believe this will be a compilation of songs from albums that didn’t receive US distribution. But don’t quote me on that.

Anyway, if you haven’t heard the song already, give “Hazuki no Umi” a listen below. And if you haven’t heard Kemuri before, be sure to pick up the new released when it goes up for pre-order!
