Lightspeed Champion And Alex Turner Cover The Strokes

Turns out Alex Turner does a pretty good Julian Casablancas. Honest to blog! And with that we’re surprising, nobody. A’Monk ribbing aside, this really is a fun cover of Room On Fire burner “Reptila,” Alex joining Lightspeed Champion & friends (billed as the Pun Lovin’ Criminals) at the White Heat party in Mayfair, across the water. The kids seem to be Strokes fans.

Damn good we say. They should put out an Is This It tribute album and call it Innit?. For album art inspiration, they could look at Goldenfiddle’s “In-Depth Look Into The Making Of The Cover Art For The Strokes’ First Album.” Smell the glove.
