Fucked Up And Moby Cover The Ramones

By brandon / October 15, 2008

There’s bound to be more clips surfacing from Fucked Up’s free 12-hour show at the Rogan Store (330 Bowery, NYC) yesterday (10/14), but seems like video of the Toronto-based bathroom re-designers doing a cover of “Blitzkrieg Bop” with Moby on guest guitar/vocals is as good a place as any to start. (Other guests included J. Mascis, Vivian Girls, Ezra Koenig, etc. Akon didn’t show, ha ha.) Last night a friend and I were talking about how it’s pretty fascinating to see Matador putting so much into The Chemistry Of Common Life. I’m a longtime Fucked Up fan and dig the new record (though have to say I think Hidden World‘s better at this point), but who’d of thought the label would be pushing hardcore — even in this updated form — so hard(core). Anyhow, Moby looks like he’s having fun.

While we’re here, take another listen to “No Epiphany” and “Twice Born.” We’ll upload any other highlights (Ezra) as we come across them.
