Covers Project Vol. III

Another volume in the monger covers series. Two of the tunes here have appeared on previously posted mixes (Nikki Corvette's "Under My Wheels" and Brett Anderson's "California Sun"). A couple of notes: 1) the Heavy Metal Kids "Girl of My Dreams" isn't technically a cover, as Bram Tchaikovsky's version was a cover of an unreleased song by, yes, the Heavy Metal Kids 2) if you're familiar with the Troggs original version of "Wild Thing" then you'll understand why I threw their weirdo '75 reggae version of the song on this collection.

Fucking hell, that's a storming version of 'Hey Tonight'! Is that Danny, The Wildhearts' old bass player?

Yes, that is Danny of the Wildhearts! Loved that first (only) Yo-Yos album. They put out an EP that was a bit of a mess afterwards though, so maybe they quit while the quittin' was good.
