The Raveonettes Cover The Stone Roses

By brandon / August 31, 2010

The Cass Bird & Molly Schiot-directed video for the Raveonettes’ cover of the Stone Roses’ 1989 debut opener “I Wanna Be Adored” starts with and returns to a pair of clunky green Doc Marten boots — a personal detail of the younger half of the clip’s odd couple, true, and this whole thing was put together to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the punk-beloved shoe company, Dr. Martens. On the Raveonettes last album In And Out Of Control, Sune Rose Wagner and Sharin Foo reminded me of Jesus & Mary Chain/Phil Spector/Magnetic Fields’ Distortion. Here, they go in a different, airier direction.
