Tuesdays, on A.V. Club
Our music-video series in which 25 bands cover 25 songs in one small, round room in The A.V. Club office.
Ceremony joined us for Undercover way back in 2012, with a high energy cover of Violent Femmes “Kiss Off.” This time, it’s Oasis’ “Rock ‘N’ Roll Star.” The original is like a crazy night on the town, when the drink (and maybe other stuff) has just started flowing, and the world seems ready to be conquered. Ceremony’s version feels like the next morning—a haze of thoughts and memories seen through the fog, with a bit of Goth-ness thrown in for good measure. But sometimes a good comedown is exactly what’s required. Ceremony’s latest album is The L-Shaped Man.
