Covers, B-Sides, and Rarities

We love us some Velvet Underground and Joy Division, whom are both classic music icons in their own right. More and more bands these days, carelessly namedrop either of these two groups as their main influence. In fact, it’s hard to get through any upcoming band, especially from the Indie spectrum, that doesn’t cite either Velvet Underground or Joy Division as their initial inspiration, be it even a smidge.

Here on the other hand, are some fantastic covers of both aforementioned bands, which have all been given a twist and added with an individual flavour of each respective artist. Indulge while you can.
