No Age – “Six Pack” (Black Flag Cover) + Eel Bros (Man Man’s Honus Honus & Hot Karate’s King Cyrus) – “Hanging By The Telephone” (Nerves Cover)
Thirty Three And A Third is a new 7-inch boxset featuring covers of bands like Black Flag, the Nerves, Misfits, and Wheatus from bands like No Age, Eel Bros (made up of Man Man’s Honus Honus and Hot Karate’s King Cyrus), Andrew Jackson Jihad’s Sean Bonnette, and Rozwell Kid. The collection was curated by Dana Lechtenberg for a gallery show in Los Angeles that was held last month. “Having the artists do all cover songs for the project ties in directly with the art show’s theme — artists reimagining and reinterpreting classic album covers,” he explained. All of the bands involved recorded two covers of songs that they picked out themselves, and you can hear a selection of them below.
The Thirty Three And A Third boxset is available now from Gallery 1988.
