artworkSomehow or other I missed this when it was issued in 1999 - twelve years ago! Anyway, amongst some interesting Neil Young covers is a rare and cool version of Aurora from The Treble Spankers.

Aurora dotdotdotdot
Rock (Instrumental)

This is a gritty cover of The Squires' "Aurora." Its textures and arrangement are substantially different from the original. It leaves behind the slither and sway of Neil's 1963 version for a slow stomp grind with bluesy tone and jagged tremolo in the break. It works very well, kind like a Brontosaurus version of Los Straitjackets. Very nice!
