As most of you know by now,Orange Counties Vultures United have been working on an all female fronted covers album titled Girls. They have been kind enough to give us two songs to stream for you guys as a teaser to get your butt over to the site and order on all your favorite formats. The songs we have for you are “Oh Bondage, Up Yours!” originally by X-Ray Spex and “That’s Not My Name” by the Ting Tings. The Ting Tings song has already made a little circulation around the web, but this is the first you’ll hear of the X-Ray Spex cover.
Check out the stream now!
Here’s some more information about the release from the band:
CD and 7″ version will be released by The Pirate Record Company
Cassette Tape/Download version released by Baldy Longhair Records
Girls was an idea we had that we got funded through Kickstarter. Why Kickstarter? Well, the whole premise of this Girls release was to do an EP of cover songs originally sang by female vocalists. Since they’re all cover songs and the whole idea of a punk/hardcore type band like us covering songs by the likes of Bjork, The Cranberries and Best Coast (amongst others) is just all a little sketchy, we thought we probably shouldn’t ask Red Scare Industries (who put our our last full length Savages) and Kiss Of Death Records (who put our latest release, To Live and Die in Gainesville).
The whole idea of Kickstarter is if people want it, they’ll fund it and it’ll happen. So that’s what we did.
On the originally Kickstarter campaign, we planned to do this just as a 7″ with 4, maybe 5 songs tops. When we finally got to choosing the songs, we just couldn’t narrow them down. So we decided to put our money where our mouths are and decided to pay for the extra songs out-of-pocket along with the release of them on CD. Eventually, Todd at Baldy Longhair hit us up about putting it out as a cassette tape/download so we thought “why not”?
