Get ready for a trip and a half down memory lane as Ugly Kid Joe frontman Whitfield Crane co-hosts this very special 22nd Episode of Wall of Sound: Up Against The Wall while his band make their way across Australia for their 25th Anniversary Tour of America’s Least Wanted. Whit takes fans behind the scenes of UKJ’s massive single ‘Cats in the Cradle‘ which, as you should know by now, is a cover of the classic 1974 Harry Chapin song of the same name, what you may not have known, is the song was also co-written by his wife Sandra, a fact Whit only discovered during a performance at the height of his band’s popularity. We also take a look at the making of the song with Whit revealing to us that his vocals in the final cut, were actually from the first take because he was unable to better his performance, no matter how many attempts he had after.
Because Ugly Kid Joe got big because of a cover song, podcast host Browny has dedicated this full episode to some of the best new and classic cover tracks ever to be released. Featuring Halestorm covering Lady GaGa, Limp Bizkit‘s infamous George Michael banger, Panic! at the Disco nailing Queen, Bare Bones‘ tribute to Metallica and fresh releases like Five Finger Death Punch‘s brand new Offspring cover, Taberah‘s rendition of ‘Hotel California‘ and Motörhead doing David Bowie, in what will be remembered as one of their last ever studio recorded songs before frontman Lemmy Kilmister passed away.
Plus there’s details on the first Download Festival Australia bands to announce sideshows, Machine Head‘s new album and so much more.
