"It's hardly news to any connoisseur of Industrial music that
Coph Nia like to cover songs. So far they have quite a cover
track record. They've transformed The Leather Nun's punk anthem
ôPrime Moverö into a brooding, industrial soundscape, and made
songs by artists as diverse as Front 242, Bauhaus, Arthur Brown
and The Rolling Stones their own.
One danger of covering songs is that you might end up as a
covers band. This is especially dangerous if you cover songs by,
say, The Rolling Stones, as you might just end up on the rock
cover band circuit - playing 'Sweet Home Alabama' in dodgy rock
pubs and biker meets in places God has been drinking to forget
ever since he created them.
On the other end of the scale, but equally degrading, is to end
up as wedding singers. Remember that really unfunny Adam Sandler
If you think that Coph Nia has too much class to end up en
either category, well, let's say you have too much faith in the
band. Coph Nia are already a bit too familiar with playing gigs
in dodgy pubs, and they've even played at a wedding (well, it
was my stag party, but it was definitely wedding-related).
So in a desperate attempt to not end up having to provide the
soundtrack to bikers picking up underage chicks or obscure
uncles doing moves from Saturday Night Fever, Coph Nia have
decided to take the demon by the horns, and tried to exorcise
the Cover Demon before it consumes them.
The result is this release. This collection of Coph Nia-fied
covers including Ozzy Osbourne's 'Mr Crowley', the song Mr.
Aldenon's band was born to cover, 'Black Sabbath' by the band of
the same name, ôSick Thingsö by Alice Cooper and ôLevitationö by
psychedelic space rockers Hawkwind.
Hopefully, the exorcism will work. If not, you know where to
look for Coph Nia in a few years...
