Does anybody have a good sounding copy of this? I have a crappy .ra file and I like it better than the SP version.

"I send my eek-o out..."

heh 'eek-o', that's actually very good. Nice harmonising.
I'd like to hear all his other covers again.

I disagree, but he is very good but i've seen and heard better.

there used to be a brilliant cover of Hummer on before it bit the dust - sadly, I never got a chance to save the file (though it was an .ra)

I remember I had a pathetic cover of Today on there, which I recorded within 2 weeks of picking up guitar for the first time. On the upside, I got Joao Miguel to do the vocals for it :D

rockcovers was a great site.. i had forgotten all about it. :(

i'm guessing it was forced to close.

I remember one of the reviewers on rockcovers said the guitar sounded like a cross between a $10 Casio keyboard and a washing machine. Personally I think it's a great death metal adaptation. :p

Hey there! Thanks for the props :)
I think the best Pumpkins cover are from that french guy called Christophe Tibault from the band Analogue. Try to find his cover for Thru the Eyes Ruby - it is as good as the original song. Amazing!

I still have your other short alt. Whir clip on a different computer from whenever it was originally posted. Where the lyrics end with something like "because I'm bored..."
