Guillemots Cover The Streets

I absolutely LOVE The Steets and I absolutely LOVE the Guillemots. So you can imagine how stoked I was to find out that the Guillemots have covered “Never Went to Church” off of The Street’s latest album, The Hardest Way to Make an Easy Living. It appears as the b-side to their new single, “Made-Up Lovesong #43”, which drops June 26th in the UK. [The Streets version drops today.]

The cover version is amazing. I know a lot of people don’t particularly care for Mikey Skinner‘s song delivery, but if you still cannot say that he is a fantastic songwriter and lyricist after listening to this very pretty version of “Never Went to Church”, then I have pity on you–pity on you for your inability to recognize greatness.

If you remember, I was totally bowled over when I saw the Guillemots at Bowery Ballroom in May. I am dead serious when I say that this band is amazing live. Start keeping tabs on when and where they are playing because you have to see it to believe it.

  1. I saw that you both like The Streets and the Guillemots and thought that I should pass on this info. Brooklyn Industries is giving away tickets to the Streets Concert, June 27 @ Webster Hall NY NY. Ealier this year they did a ticket giveaway for the Guillemots.

    Anyway, hope you win, or pass on the news to other fans like us.


  2. this whole trend of bands covering current songs is such a cheap, attention-whore-marketing-pr-blogger scam. fuck off and write your own songs.

  3. great, the exact chords of let it be being talked over by a cockney nobody

  4. odd when you are just getting to know a band then you see them make a video of someone elses the Guillemots Train to Brazil video when the English school kids walk/run out on their show at the end.Jack White wouldn’t take that shit from kids
