This chap has produced cover versions of Pixies songs done in the styles of other famous artists, mostly predating the Pixies. Hear "Wave Of Mutilation" done as Bee Gees-style '70s soft-soul, "Hey" through the lens of Prince's falsetto electro funk, "Monkey Gone To Heaven" crooned by Frank Sinatra (in front of a live audience in Atlantic City or somewhere), and others by Elvis, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, Tina Turner and the Beach Boys.
MP3s of indie bands covering well-known songs; includes covers of Whitney Houston, Kylie Minogue, ABBA, Ace of Base and various R&B/rap artists, by the likes of The Flaming Lips, The Mountain Goats, Belle & Sebastian, and some bloke named Ben Gibbard who gets featured twice. Interesting that they have covers of REM and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, but omit covers of The Smiths and Talking Heads.
