The Cover Version - Spoon Blast out Blistering Version of the Cramps’ ‘TV Set’ on ‘Conan’

I use your eyeballs for dials on my TV set ...

Britt Daniels and pals offered up a blistering live cover version of the demented ‘TV Set’ the other night on the Conan O'Brien Show.

Odd bedfellows here, indeed! A bizarro collision  between The Cramps' mighty, deranged, punktastic take on rockabilly and Spoon's polished, slinky indie rock that, surprisingly, works magnificently well!

Britt and the boys deliver a remarkably faithful rendition of the opening track from 1980’s Bad Music For Bad People, if only shined up just a bit. They wrap their guitars in fuzz and kick the low-end up to menacing levels, while Daniel assumes Lux Interior’s stuttering delivery to perfection.

Spoon contributed  this sublime cover of the Cramps’ Psychobilly classic to the soundtrack for the new remake of Poltergeist.

Yap, the much-maligned reboot of the horror franchise classic might’ve all been worth it just for bringing this thing into existence.
