Covers of TV Smith songs....?
« on: August 30, 2009, 10:04:23 PM »
I apologise if there's been a list of other people's versions of TV's songs before but I haven't been able to locate a post about it.

I was recently introduced to the work of Paul Roland and came across his (recently re-released) acoustic based mini-album ĎA Cabinet Of Curiosities' (originally from 1987).

On it he does a creepy, slightly baroquish version of 'Gary Gilmore's Eyes'. Anybody else heard this. It's kind of like a Robyn Hitchcock style.

After hearing this and the recent German cover of 'Lion And The Lamb' I was wondering if one of you chaps could furnish me with a list of covers in case there's other tracks I might want to hunt down.

Would like one, too.

It's a topic that's been coming up time and again. But no problem with that!  8)
Here's a thread about it which lists a few of the covers:
