New EP of cover versions! ‘Others’

Others - cover

It’s called ‘Others‘ and it’s a four-track EP (as in four songs, not recorded on a four-track… what is this, 1996?) of covers, featuring songs by John Lennon, Pseudo Echo, Duran Duran (what is this, 1981?) and err, the Beatles. John again, to be precise. His songs are easier to sing than Paul’s, generally.

You can download it directly here (zip file, about 28mb) or get it via torrent here.

Here are some previews, so you know what you’re in for! It’s not on Spotify, Rdio etc just yet – I’m working on it. There won’t be a Bandcamp version as they don’t allow cover versions, for obvious reasons.

Cats and a video (but it’s not a cat video)

Kosh Records was named after our old cat, an enormous longhaired white cat who was arguably even weirder than his namesake. Like many white cats he was totally deaf, which was probably for the best. He also had a tendency to sleep in spots that didn’t look remotely comfortable.

Kosh the cat
Just imagine him doing this in the middle of the road.

We had a couple of other cats at the same time as well, including a ginger named Scully. I suppose there’s a certain irony in the fact that these cats got on pretty well, considering we named one after an extraterrestrial mystic and the other after an alien denier.

A more comfortable place to sleep, I guess.
All that bed space, and they still wanted to sleep on top of the dirty clothes.

So why the random blog post about cats? Well this is the internet, but if you really need a reason someone recently pointed me in the direction of “Scully Likes Science”. Basically it’s a bunch of clips of Scully (the TV version) telling everyone about the awesomeness of science, set to music by Ryan English. Feel the nostalgia! Stay tuned for a post about the cats we currently have, due in about seven years’ time.

ICYMI: Church

No, I don’t care if you missed going to church today – that’s between you and the big guy, if you believe in that sort of thing.

Church is the latest Radio Over Moscow track, which has been out for a little while but wasn’t posted here at the time. So here it is, if you haven’t seen it on Facebook already (and if you haven’t liked Radio Over Moscow on Facebook yet, why not? Surely it wouldn’t be the most embarrassing thing you’ve liked on there).
