s5e69 Le Butcherettes covers Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball”
June 14, 2016
We figured that Le Butcherettes would likely offer more of a performance than the average band that visits our studio; after all, singer-guitarist Teri Gender Bender tends to stalk stages, frequently covered in fake blood. The band—which started life in Mexico, but now calls California home—didn’t disappoint, thrashing new life into Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball.” Le Butcherettes’ latest is the menacing, fantastic A Raw Youth.
Rob Crow has played with an almost comical number of bands in his long musical career, most notably Pinback, whose mellow, weird mid-’90s albums feel like nearly lost classics at this point. Crow’s latest endeavor is credited to Rob Crow’s Gloomy Place, and it’s a logical continuation of his subtle sound. He stopped by Undercover HQ to tackle Men At Work’s classic “Overkill,” which was also performed for us recently by Colin Hay, who wrote it. Enjoy.
