MVLL CRIMES - Just Like Heaven


  One of my favourite songs from last year was Arguing With Strvngers (I featured it here :  https://justsomepunksongs.blogspot.com/2022/09/mvll-crimes-arguing-with-strvngers.html) by Canadian quartet (Jill Clair (Vocals/Lyrics), Patrick Briggs (Guitar), Laurie McColeman (Bass) & Evan Martin (Drums)) MVLL CRIMES. 

  Noticing they'd a new single out and that it was a cover of a Cure classic (one that had already been covered in some style by Dinosaur Jr) I was intrigued as to what they'd do with it. I wasn't disappointed. It's not a million miles removed from the original though the bass to me sounds very much to be influenced by Public Image whilst Jill's vocals are pleasingly deadpan. What's more it's available as a free download and backed by a very enjoyable Incorrect Thoughts Sessions version of  BOOTLICKER'S DELIGHT REPRISVL.

   This is Just Like Heaven...
