Good Cover Version: Shame does B-52s
In honor of their show tonight at the Black Cat, I present to you Shame's absolutely divine cover of "Rock Lobster."
Recorded at London's RAK Studios, this jittery, breathless rampage through one of the Athens band's finest audio moments is a peach. As brash and chaotic (though not quite as camp) as the original, with the tongue-in-cheek attitude firmly in place, Shame's reimagining of this B-52s classic hits all the right spots. Once I start listening to this I can't stop. Hopefully, provided of course you're not already in love with the song, you will be as of today.
