I like how this version of Franklin's Tower is stripped down, has no effects on the guitar. This sounds like a garage band playing the Dead and the Puppets, and SST, where not afraid to release this recording for public consumption. So, there's the Punk Rock sensibility of the Meat Puppets, "Here it is. If ya don't like it, sorry about that . . ." I believe that there was a good bit of the same sensibility in the Dead too.
There's also a Neil Young cover on this Meat Puppets recording which makes more sense too me.
So, that's nine bizarro cover tunes. I'll post one more and call this project done, then I can play whatever I want!
- Richard Thompson covers Britney Spears
- B-Hole Surfers cover Donovan
- Camper Van Beethoven cover Black Flag
- David Bowie covers The Velvet Underground
- The Clash covers Roots Reggae
- Sister Double Happiness covers 13th Floor Elevator
- Plain Wrap covers Buffalo Springfield
- Seven Seconds covers Nancy Sinatra
- The Meat Puppets cover the Grateful Dead
