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 we bring you White Wives (feat. Chris Head and Chris #2 of Anti-Flag) covering The Pixies “Where Is My Mind.” The track is from their release Situationist EP, which is available for free streaming or a pay-what-you-wish download here. Go over there (or right here)to hear the cover.
In the interest of passing judgment, the original is here.
