Tz’s Daily Dose of Decade: The Arctic Monkeys + Nick Cave

There is nothing less interesting in the world of music than when a band covers a classic song verbatim… which is why i’m digging the Arctic Monkeys covering this Nick Cave tune!

This version comes off all cigarettes and coffee, whereas there is something darker in the mix of the original, however they manage to pull off some of the same kind of sinister that would do Mr. Cave proud. Nice one lads, though i’m still more afraid of The Bad Seeds’ version!

  • the arctic monkeys bring a bit of iggy into the cover, but it feels very measured, too clean. i wish they would have lost control a bit more with it… it wants to explode but just doesn’t…
