I made a comment recently on another blog (Alan Cross) how I loved original music. I also mentioned that when bands performed covers that I get off on them so much more when they put their own personal spin on the song...essentially making it their own. My previous post featured a video by Gift of Destiny covering Punk band Agent Orange's song Bloodstains, and oh hell yeah, they made that song their own! Well, they've gone and fucking done it again - this time with one of my favorite songs, Wild Cherry's Play That Funky Music.
Gift of Destiny kept the funk, but made it rock even harder! Filming this video from a number of live shows on an iPhone....yeah you heard me, a fucking iPhone........it was shot and edited by up and coming filmographer O.T. Ashton....no, I don't know O.T. either but I have a feeling we might be seeing more from this film maker in the future! Here, check it out.....
PLAY THAT FUNKY MUSIC
This song was released as a single last year....and yeah, I have it on my iPod....fuck....apple is fucking everywhere, isn't it? Anyway....I fucking love this band - their originals AND their covers. I probably don't need to mention that I wouldn't mind getting under the covers with this band.....but I will......... ; )
