SOME OF OUR BANDS NEED A BIGGER MEGAPHONE MAN, YEAH??!!!
Can we get AI to create these covers?🤞…No? …Not yet? We have to wait until 2030? Are you serious? Really?!?!!! Lame.
These might be the only people who could do these songs more justice. (all time machines aside of course) No?

***Thank goodness none of us are famous – and that these songs are ours – the best kept secrets in music. I mean, it would be nice if all these musicians we love could pay their bills from the music they create, but that’s really not what rock n roll capilaism is about these days – so at least we have the tunes (and our imaginations at times) to guide us all through the dark times. ***
and for things that could actually be achieved…
THE CITY – HUNTING LIONS – Covered by Swingin’ Utters (for a split 7” or Utters covering PPR comp…!!!)
Any Other tracks to propose for an utters cover PPR comp (which would be worth paying them $$$$ for, if they were actually up for it… ??? …they’ve been friends with so many (defunct) bands of ours at this point. Would be cool for them to be able to extend the posterity of some of the best songs from some of those bands that they used to love and some of the people that they care about would obviously benefit from it. Just thinking out loud…)
STRAY DOGS – SYDNEY DUCKS (just one great example)
