They should be pretty instantaneous - is your broadband playing up?

Maybe he thinks that the songs are too long?  ;)

Call it a draw?

Yep, I've always liked the Damned's version of LA Woman (sadly never released - maybe they thought it would be too much after "Eloise" and "Alone Again Or" were covers already...)
Rat told me they got bored at times, hence the many live covers:

Original version, and story, that grew from the roots of Bastard:

The famous version - same backing track, but NOT the credited singer:

...and back for another Damned link:

Same producer - rather different:

Can we call this one a draw?

Think The Ramones version just about edges it although it's really a Joey cover as I don't think any of the others actually played on it? Not one of Johnny's favourites!
