Not quiet enough…

David Eugene Edwards often throws in a cover version on an album. I well remember 16 Horsepower doing Dylan’s Nobody ‘Cept You on their “Secret South” album in 2000 – my first reaction was nausea. Later this would lead to abject horror as I realised there was not one single redeeming feature of the song and this is perhaps the reason why I didn’t buy the follow up “Folklore” until this year. I did however get hold of two live albums in between times, both of which featured Joy Division covers and found both 24 Hours and Day Of The Lords magnificent.

I’ve been listening to the David Eugene Edwards latest release: “Ten Stones” by Woven Hand. It’s a very good album full of accomplished menacing Gothic. But it does have one track, Quiet Nights Of Quiet Stars, that is a cover of a song once performed by Frank Sinatra. Look, it’s a great album but this particular part is a real stinker and has even reminded me of ‘Big Band Night’ on X-Factor.
