Hearts Are The Easiest Things You Can Break

When The Jesus And Mary Chain covered someone else's song it came with shards of feedback, broken glass, earsplitting volume and a gallon of Special Brew. So it seems only fitting that when covering them Richard Hawley should head in the other direction- keeping the girl group drum pattern, and then layering rich vox, twanging guitars and some lushness to the Reid brothers ode to a girl, or drugs, or possibly just candy. Cracking cover version to set off an unseasonably sunny Sunday.

It makes me fantasise about Roy Orbison covering it.
