The idea was to do a show about cover songs. The problem with that is there are far too many stone cold brilliant covers out there to make this show come in at a reasonable time. During my preparations for Hari Kari I had an insight. How about I do a show during which I blast the original versions of fantastic covers. So then I began the research. I had NO idea Istanbul (Not Constantinople) was a cover by They Might Be Giants. Stunned. And Jet Airliner? Who knew? This was an absolutely brilliant time to put together. I hope you're still capable of awe and I certainly hope you turn all these up. Maybe even dance a little bit.
