Valentines Day Final - The Flying Change

Do you remember when Elbow did a cover of Destiny's Child's Independent Women? At one point I thought it was going to cause the band problems, people were starting to know them but only for that tongue in cheek cover. Other bands have made it because of a cover and then surprise surprise fall from grace when people don't instantly like their other material.

Well The Flying Change had their cover of All My Friends by LCD Soundsystem voted 17th in the 100 best covers of 2008. Understandably the band didn't want the highlight of their set to be someone else's song so they took the elements of the cover and made it in to their own song. Have a listen and see what you think, it's recorded live hence the dodgy recording quality on the vocals.
