The New Piccadillys!

January 23, 2013

Holy moly, this is just amazing! By sheer coincidence (and dumb luck) I stumbled across The New Piccadillys doing a brilliant Merseybeat version of The Ramones classic Judy is a Punk! Perfectly executed with a nice video I’ve kept playing this over and over just to grasp the sheer genius of it. This is how you do a cover song! Not a bland, generic audio xerox, but a unique interpretation where you give the material your own twist – pun intended.

Needing to find out more about this band I did a quick google and came up with an official page on Facebook (check it out here), plus information some of the members used to be in that other great Merseybeat outfit The Kaisers – so there’s no mystery where their ability to pull off the authentic sound came from. There’s more videos on YouTube, so do yourself a favor and check them out!
