Katy Goodman and Greta Morgan collaborated on a charming album of punk and new wave covers last month, releasing Take It, It’s Yours on August 26 via Polyvinyl Records.
I’ve enjoyed listening to the 10 tracks on the album, which include covers of songs by Billy Idol, Bad Brains, The Replacements, and others. Katy and Greta are bringing their bands, La Sera and Springtime Carnivore respectively, around to perform at Songbyrd Music House on Thursday, Oct. 20 as part of a US tour they have undertaken together.
Both La Sera and Springtime Carnivore have new material so I don’t know if Katy and Greta will perform any of their covers together. However, I’m reminded of their wonderfully dreamy version of “Ever Fallen in Love” by the Buzzcocks, because the Buzzcocks are coming around on their 40th anniversary tour to play at the 9:30 Club next week on Wednesday, Sept. 28!
Watch the official music video for “Ever Fallen in Love” with Katy and Greta covering the Buzzcocks on YouTube:
I shared the Buzzcocks original (which lacks an official video) yesterday because Parklife DC is giving away a pair of tickets to see the Buzzcocks!
