David Bowie - Love Will Tear Us Apart (Joy Division cover)


David Bowie’s rare cover of ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ by  Joy Division.

A chance meeting in 1983 had David Bowie, Bernard Sumner and Peter Hook chatting away over beers in the Kings Arms in Salford. “…So we were all there just having a laugh and we joked that he should come n have a jam with us, then next minute - well, it was the next day actually, but i didn’t expect he’d definitely come by - and we were in the practice rooms and we were playing Love Will Tear Us Apart and I was like, f%$k we’re playing Love Will Tear Us Apart with David Bowie singing, this is crazy. We never released it - Bowie took a recording of it, and just layered some more vocals on for fun, sent it back to me…”

"Our friend Miche Braden returned to help us show what Guns N’ Roses "Sweet Child O’ Mine" would have sounded like if New Orleans blues legend Bessie Smith had recorded it back in the ’20s. That note at 3:58 was so powerful that the room literally shook…”

Chris Farren - Pirates (Jenny Owen Youngs)



Dear friend and punk celebrity/t-shirt mogul/America’s Sweetheart, chrisfarren, has been doing a series of covers. Because I am who I am, I e-bullied Chris into covering a jennyowenyoungs song. Though “Pirates” was my second choice, goddamn. Like all the others in the series (notable favorites Modern Baseball’s “The Weekend” and Cat Stevens’s “Don’t Be Shy”), Chris goes above and beyond the simple acoustic guitar/vocals run-of-the-mill cover. He makes these songs his own. There’s a reason that fakeproblems is my favorite band and these covers just make me even more anxious for a new album of original material. Until then, I’ll be ripping these for my iPod to listen to on repeat.

god bless chris farren
