Free Music Now! Vol. 9: Cover Versions
Original broadcast: January 14, 2010 (Thu), 2230-0000h (GMT +8)
We're airing on Thursday this week! Why? Blame Cat Power!
In the spirit of Chan Marshall, this generation's foremost re-interpreter of song, FMN! presents a programme of cover versions.
While in some contexts (say, a night at Timbre), the idea of cover versions means a dearth of originality and a conservative clamour for the familiar, the tried and the tested, we've cast our nets far and wide to source for reworkings that are one or more of the following: radical, endearing, unusual, cute, impressive, fucked up...
