Cheers Ken another interesting one - I like the Devon accent when he sings "designed for Direct action"! But overall wish they had 'punked' it up a little more.

Someone has drawn my attention to The Tall Boys, who are covering GGE on their latest album (2013).

Quote
"One” is as genre-defying as ever in trademark Tall Boys style, which also shines through in salutes to Link Wray, The Gun Club and 77 punk (yes, the biggest Adverts hit).

Couldn't find it on youtube, but here's an album teaser to give you an idea of how they sound:

Cold Megan (band from Orpington) posted this on their Soundcloud thing back in 2010. I don't even know if the band still exists.
So, it's old. But it's new to my ears.

Quite a straight copy that one, although the guitar solo didn't catch Howard's short sharp spiky brilliance

So I couldn't find that this had been put on YouTube so I have done it myself.
The Valentines 2007 version of The Adverts 'One Chord Wonders' released just before they started backing Tim on live dates.

Someone has finally loaded it up:

There's a band called 'Pil y Los Violadores de la ley'.
They are from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
They have a new album out called “ULTIMO HOMBRE”.
On the album they cover 'Immortal Rich'.
Guests on the album include TV Smith and Duncan Reid.

I haven't heard it but I'm trying to find the album.

I've just got a 2003 album by The Minds (from Portland, Oregon) with a rather good version of 'My Place' on it.

Further to my post of January 2014 the studio version is now on YouTube.
I know...'cause I put it there today.  ;)

Mine arrived today. Bit of a long wait. But a nice version of 'Immortal Rich'.

Oops, forgot that I'd said that I'd report back!
Mine arrived a lot quicker (early September).
Yeah, really like the cover of "Immortal Rich" (does it actually count as a cover if TV's singing & playing guitar?) though the Spanish chorus threw me a bit. The rest of the album's got some strong tunes, a sprinkling of "Strummeresque" guitar with singalong lyrics (if you can singalong in Spanish that is). Also, Gaye provided some of the artwork.
Better late than never!

Yes. Saw that link. But putting ALL of somebody's new album on YouTube and supplying a free download link is a bit dodgy. I don't suppose the band are making very much return on their costs.

Yeah, I know what you mean. It's not something I agree with either although anyone seeing the link from the forum (or Tim's Facebook page) who hasn't already bought the CD (like we did) might be encouraged to shell out for the real thing?
