Jonder presents his fave band You Am I in a covers set!

(SCOTT) first of all, a lot of work went into this obviously... secondly, my first exposure to You Am I was Jonder's recent compilation of their work.... and I enjoyed them quite a bit, that is why we are here... to ALL introduce each other to new things that we may regret we have missed.... anyway, I was doing something else but having some trouble with both Pirate Bay AND Song 365 (grrrrrrr), so it's Jonder to the rescue with another fab set of stuff  (You Am I covering various tracks, to me sounds EXCELLENT)..... can't wait to listen to this one!
I'm going to try again to make a few You Am I converts with this set of covers.  As AC/DC fans, Scott and Brian might particularly like the first track, where singer Tex Perkins (ex-Beasts of Bourbon) is backed by You Am I on "Dirty Deeds".  Tex also croons Rod Stewart's "Tonight's The Night" near the end of this comp (before the Frank Ocean cover!)  

In between, You Am I pays tribute to the Stooges, Stones, Dolls, Who, Pretty Things, Beatles, Easybeats, Replacements, X, Big Star, and more.  Brothers and sisters, I truly believe that You Am I is one of the best rock bands currently in action, with a shit-hot rhythm section, raunchy guitars, and a great frontman.  See if you don't at least agree that they do these songs proud.

Thanks to Jonder for these, like all the rest of my contributing friends, PLEASE never leave me, this blog would be a shell of what it is without your great outside contributions!


  1. Forgot how I found out about these guys, but yep I like em too. Along with the 22-20's

  2. Thanks for the comments! I forgot to mention that some of these are live tracks, and some are from radio sessions, tribute albums, and film soundtracks. These guys are huge in their home country (#1 albums, headlining festivals, etc) but never had nearly as much success outside of Australia. If anyone has the You Am I songs from the tribute albums to the Hoodoo Gurus and Cold Chisel, I would love to hear them!
