Fur - X Offender
Today's song is a cover version of a Blondie classic by a band from New York City called Fur who were together between 1991-1998. Featuring Holly Ramos (vocals/guitar), Danuta Roberts (Gozdziewicz) on bass and a number of drummers including Peter Klinger and Michael Mc Dermott, they were often likened to a female fronted version of The Ramones (aside from the catchy pop punk tunes, Roberts at one time dated Dee Dee).
They released a couple of singles, 1993's Sex Drive/I'm Not Coming 7" and 1996's Mira Mira. There was also a highly regarded self titled album which came out in 1995 on Blackout! Records and which features the song posted below.
If you're looking for a fuzzed up pop punk classic then look no further, this is X Offender.......
