I Never Thought I'd Need So Many People

Another Bowie cover to follow yesterday's Associates version of Boys Keep Swinging. We've had the odd Terry Edwards post here before, either from his e.p. of punk trumpet covers of Jesus And Mary Chain songs or his totally wired cover of The Fall. This is something else, a totally beautiful and entrancing cover of Bowie's apocalyptic Five Years, done for a Peel Session in 1993. The playing is such that you don't need to hear Bowie imploring 'we've got five years, my brain hurts a lot'- it's all there in the brass.

Thanks for all the covers this week, all new to me and good. And the Cramps are always excellent to these ears. Jez

Great cover. Another very underrated (outside my household anyway)Bowie cover is the wonderful The Man Who Sold The World by Lulu, produced by the man himself and with some stonking saxophone (not something you hear often)by him too. Thanks for turning me on to some really great music - keep it up please!!!!
