Civic – “Chase The Dragon” (Beasts Of Bourbon Cover)

Civic – “Chase The Dragon” (Beasts Of Bourbon Cover)

The Australian band Civic released a new album, Taken By Force, a few months back, and they just announced that they’re headed stateside for their first full-fledged tour in America. Coincidentally, they’re also sharing a new single today, a cover of the Aussie blues-rock band Beasts Of Bourbon’s “Chase The Dragon.” They’re releasing it to celebrate the new book Half Deaf, Completely Mad: The Chaotic Genius Of Australia’s Most Legendary Producer, which is about producer Tony Cohen, who worked closely with Beasts Of Bourbon among many others.

“‘Chase The Dragon’ grabbed my attention when I was a kid. Seeing it on TV I thought it was real cool,” Civic’s Lewis Hodgson said in a statement. “The production is hard as fuck. Almost industrial. That snare sound. The film clip suits too. Obviously a classic now. Good seedy riff with good seedy lyrics. Fun to play too.”
