Girl Band’s visceral cover of Blawan’s techno tune ‘Why They Hide Their Bodies Under My Garage’ which first appeared on Quompilation #3 has got a second life as part of a cheekily-titled U.S. release called The Early Years, out on April 21st which will be used to promote the band’s upcoming SXSW/North American gigs.
What does that mean for you, he diligent collector of the band’s early EPs on Any Other City, I hear you ask? Well, the prolific Bob Gallagher has only gone and directed a new video for the Blawan cover filmed in a studio with the prop help of Staffords funeral home. Linking to a funeral home Niall, that’s a first.
