Few things here. First of all, Kalamazoo Michigan is a real place. Second of all, deep within the recesses of what I thought was a fictional realm invented by doctor suess, is The Extreme Unicorns. Third, I know this is kind of late, but! Nothing Nice to Say is off of hiatus, (wooooo!!!!!!) so that’s pretty cool I guess.

Anyway- The Extreme Unicorns. Vocalist/bassist Lex gives the band that sort of, tamer (relatively speaking) almost riot grrl vocal sound you might find in Slutever or The Gits. Plus, guitarist Tim (one word) and drummer Rob O’Toole have soft gingery beards that have been known to cure blindness.

They do some really great covers of The Misfits and Britney Spears, and! They only have one original song out now, so now is your chance to say you liked them before they were cool!

Go the their website or buy their merch. Listen. Be amazed.

Unexpected Amateur Covers

I’m sure that like many of you I am constantly finding myself being surprised by the various strange covers that I see on youtube. This week I’ll be sharing a few of my favorite with you. Please keep all arms and legs in the vehicle, and keep all questions and comment until the end of the tour (if you have any favorite covers, feel free to post them).

Johnny Cash “Sunday Morning Coming Down” cover by Jesse Morris

This is without a doubt Johnny Cash Punk Reincarnate. I don’t know how he stole Cash’s voice, but for the love of science, SOMEONE GIVE THIS MAN A JOINT!

Alternate universe Johnny Cash blows your mind.

Britney Spears “Toxic” cover by Molly Lewis

This girl had got some good uke skills . I’ve never been too crazy about Britney Spears, but I’ve always had a soft spot for the song Toxic. It seems that there is a good trend of people doing ukulele covers as of late, so expect a Top Five article about uke covers at some point.

Bow down to the uke

Jack Johnson/ODB/Beatles/Snoop Dogg cover by Michael Hurwitz and Jaysen Lee-St. John

These two live in Shanghai China, and Jam out every day. These are the kind of roommates I wish I had. They are so entertaining that I found it hard to choose just one of their youtube mash-ups for this post. So I would suggest browsing their other stuff here.

Best roommates ever

Foo Fighters “Everlong” cover by Dylan and Lauren

These two call themselves “Sandalwood'”, and while this might not be the most skillful cover of a song, it is by all means surprising. I would have to give more credit to the guitarist (Dylan) in this video for his skills, but HELL they both get some major respect for being so young in the first place.

Curfew has gotta make it hard to run a good band.

Lil’ Jon “Get Low” cover by Jackson Foote, Eden Neville, and Alex Koste

A room full of what appears to be the whitest teenagers on earth have managed to make a catchy Lil’ Jon song even harder to resist. I feel so torn by this, part of me knows that I have zero respect for Lil’ Jon and the other part of me thinks that the kids in this video would probably invite me to their youth group, yet when the two come together… it’s actually really appealing to me. Do two wrongs make a right?

Apparently so.

Sooo white…
