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.
The classic Misfits lineup will reunite next month for its first shows in over 30 years, so it’s perfect timing for the influential punk band to (finally?) make it to the A.V. Undercover list. We saw Bleached singer Jennifer Clavin wearing a Misfits shirt at some point this year, and we assumed it was a match made in heaven. (Hell, probably, right?) Here, Bleached tackles the Misfits classic “Skulls,” with a little assist from a prop we coincidentally had sitting around the office. The latest Bleached album is Welcome The Worms. Enjoy.
Trashcan Sinatras has been a band for nearly three decades, releasing some of the finest, smartest pop around to a relatively small group of diehards. The band tends to wait quite a long time between albums, and this year’s Wild Pendulum was no exception; it’s only the group’s sixth album in all that time. We invited them to do a cover from our list, and that performance will be coming up in September. Since I’m such a big fan, we also had them do some more songs, including “Best Day On Earth,” from Wild Pendulum. Here’s that, and look for their cover of… something we’re not telling you in September.
