Our house reviewer, Arthur Urquiola, has released 2 cover tracks for free download. Arthur moonlights in various bands around Hong Kong and has been doing it for the past almost 30 years. He’s currently in a shoegaze band called Lip Servants and was recently in Bastardon and The Tracy Lords. He’s just a creative force and we’re all better for it.
“The first track is a cover of Los Angeles Punk Trio Osker‘s ‘Strangled’, while the second is a rendition of ‘Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)’ by young up-and-comers Green Day. Rather than a gentle acoustic ballad, Arthur’s rendition of the latter track explores an alternate reality where the song was released on the band’s Dookie record.”
His vocals on the Green Day track are amazing.
