Les Savy Fav Cover Superchunk, Take Us Back To Atlanta 2005

Those are two different actions, by the way. Anyhow, it’s fun watching Les Sav Fav live. We might’ve said that before. Turns out, it’s also fun listening to them live, like without Tim Harrington’s stripteases. LSF are releasing a digital-only live album the end of the month. It’s called After The Balls Drop and features the performance they did this past New Years Eve at the Bowery Ballroom. If you were there, you’ll understand why it’s being archived. All said, it’s 15 tracks long and includes some covers: “Hey Tonight” (CCR), “Debaser” (Pixies), “Astro Zombies” (The Misfits), “Sliver” (Nirvana), and “Everybody’s Gotta Live” (Love). We have ourselves another cover that won’t appear on the collection — LSF’s hyper art-punk take on Superchunk’s classic “Precision Auto.” The recording’s from City Sol in January ’07.

Les Savy Fav – “Precision Auto” (MP3)

As Britt would say, Mac for President. On top of that, we have previously unreleased living recordings of three Fav originals to share. They were all recorded in Atlanta, back in ’05, at a show Syd says he can’t remember…

Les Savy Fav – “Disco Drive” (MP3)
Les Savy Fav – “Reprobates Resume” (MP3)
Les Savy Fav – “In These Woods” (MP3)

Genuinely funny between-song banter? Scandalous. And, fun to hear some relative “oldies.”

After The Balls Drop is out digitally 4/29 via French Kiss. These songs aren’t on it.
