Mother Of Earth

I came across this earlier this week, a new band and from Manchester too. The New Southern Electrikk and a dark, sultry cover version of Mother Of Earth by The Gun Club. The band say it's only a demo but it sounds pretty done to me. Singer Monica Ward has got one of those voices and the band, former Paris Angels amongst them, cook up a reverb laden stew. Southern gothic via east Manchester. More please.

Whew! That's a wicked and i mean that in the "evil" sense, rather than the tired 90's hipster form, version. Mother Of Earth is a massively important track to me...I once got Jeffery Lee to write out the lyrics of the first verse and sign it on a promo pic of the band.
It's a gritty track full of LA and New Orleans darkness. The New Southern Electrikk do it justice. It sounds great, but it seems the band may have imploded after a gig this week.
