Another Really Good Cover

You have to really know what you're doing to cover The Cramps. You fuck it up, and you look like a real idiot. The underground's John Mellencamp, Jack O' Fire, presumably took time off from their day jobs of lecturing anyone within earshot about the true nature of the blues, recorded their own misguided attempt at 'Under The Wire'. How is it? It's fucking horrible. If you are going to try to take a shot at possibly the best known Cramps' song, 'Human Fly', you've got some guts. Halo of Flies pulled it off, with the ugliest fuzz this side of The Scientists, a drummer that had the good sense not to try and top Nick Knox's economy, and nicely distorted vocals. Good job.
