Random Cover Song: Banner Pilot – “Ever Fallen in Love” (Buzzcocks)

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 in the form of Minneapolis punk act Banner Pilot‘s take on “Ever Fallen in Love” originally written and recorded by the Buzzcocks. The Buzzcocks version was released on their 1978 album Love Bites, while Banner Pilot’s cover was originally released on their debut EP, Pass the Poison although it has since been removed from recent pressings.

You can compare and contrast both versions of the song below.

Tonight’s cover comes from New York’s Rival Schools and their cover version of the Buzzcocks‘ “Why Can’t I Touch It?”. The original version first appeared on the “Everybody’s Happy Nowadays” single in 1979 before being packaged as a part of the Singles Going Steady compilation later that same year. Rival Schools initially recorded their version of the song for their second album but it was shelved in 2003 due to the band’s breakup. The unreleased album was leaked onto the internet with the cover song mislabeled as “Seems So Real” for a decade before it (along with the rest of the scrapped album) finally got a proper release in 2013 as a part of Rival Schools’ third album Found.

You can listen to both versions of “Why Can’t I Touch It?” below.
