Japandroids – “Jack The Ripper” (Nick Cave Cover)

By Tom Breihan / April 3, 2012

Last week, we posted “The House That Heaven Built,” the excellent new track from ragged Canadian destroyers Japandroids. That track is the first single from Japandroids’ new album Celebration Rock, and the 7″ version of it, out next month, features something nearly as badass on the B-side: A cover of Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds’ unhinged, blues-damaged 1992 wailer “Jack The Ripper.” Listen to the Japandroids’ fuzzed-up version of it below.

The 7″ version of “The House That Heaven Built” is out 5/4 on Polyvinyl; pre-order it here.
