Under The Cover of Moonlight.
Time for some music, a bit of a mish-mash here really, various artists doing various covers of various other artists. First up it’s ANDI SEXGANG former singer in goth glamsters Sex Gang Children, with his take on Iggy Pops I’m Bored, and Richard Hell’s Love Come in Spurts. Next it’s SONIC YOUTH with a low fi rendition of The New York Dolls Personality Crisis, swiftly followed by THE WATERBOYS and their version of Rolling Stones classic Wild Horses. Finally it’s DAVID BOWIE & MARC BOLAN covering The Cuddly Toys Madman, I say covering, but that’s not strictly true, as they wrote it, but the Cuddly Toys released it unlike Bowie and Bolan who never recorded it in the studio, this rough recording was done in a hotel room somewhere, sometime when Bolan was touring in 1977, if I’m correct, if not then I’m wrong, but what the hell. Enjoy!
