K CAL­I­FOR­NIA GOTH MET­ALLERS DE­LIVER THE ODDEST COV­ERS YOU’LL EVER HEAR

■ COV­ERS EPS? There’s noth­ing wrong with that, but you do have to won­der quite what the think­ing was be­hind New Years Day’s song selections on Diary Of A Creep.the one orig­i­nal here, open­ing track Dis­gust Me, is the sort of dark, stomp­ing stuff we’ve come to ex­pect from Ash Costello and co. but the five cov­ers that fol­low are just crack­ers. take, for ex­am­ple, their re­work­ing of Pan­tera’s Fuck­ing Hos­tile, which re­places the orig­i­nal’s speed and breath­less ag­gres­sion with key­boards, slow grooves, and the ques­tion of whether they’ve ever ac­tu­ally heard the song be­fore. Linkin Park’s Crawl­ing is a more ob­vi­ous choice, but it comes out weird, while Garbage’s Only Happy When It Rains (fea­tur­ing Lzzy Hale) is only good next to the un­nec­es­sar­ily pumped-up ver­sion of No Doubt’s Don’t Speak that fol­lows, and has you gen­uinely won­der­ing what’s go­ing on. Is there any point to this? Ab­so­lutely not. DOWN­LOAD: Dis­gust Me. FOR FANS OF: Linkin Park, Mar­i­lyn Man­son.
