Permanent Wave

Permanent Wave is a new benefit tribute compilation dedicated to the legendarily unhinged first-wave British punk band X-Ray Spex. On the compilation, Titus Andronicus reunite with Amy Klein, who left the band last year, to cover “Oh Bondage! Up Yours,” the best-known X-Ray Spex track, with Klein, whose feminist collective Permanent Wave spearheaded the comp, yelping in a fake British accent and turning in a pretty great Poly Styrene impression. Listen to it below.

  1. Permanent Wave is the name of the organization that put the comp together. The name of the comp itself is Rebel On the Underground.

  2. Also, Amy Klein was a member of Titus Andronicus when this was recorded.
