As someone who finds perfect music in a single human with a message and a wooden, acoustic guitar, I lament the addition of instruments, musicians and electricity.

I therefore find myself at the opposite end of the musical spectrum from Metal (Heavy or otherwise). If you're a fan of that type of music, you are wrong. Harsh, but true.

However, I've got the perfect cover album to bridge the musical gap between us. It's called What's Next to the Moon? by Mark Kozelek. Kozelek was the lead singer of the grammatically ambiguous Red House Painters - who I also have a soft spot for.

The album is a series of reimaginings (sorry) of early AC-DC songs with a folky feel. I love it. I'm afraid I don't even know the originals, so I'd love to know how any AC-DC fans feel about them. Horrified I would imagine. 

Here's a selection...

So here's a relatively new one to me.

Long story, well a story that spans a long period of time anyway. My memory is a bit sketchy as my synapses had cider in them at the time, but a few months before Arthur Lee died, a mate and I went to see him at The Brook. He was the frontman of the band Love. I didn't know much about him/them before going, but my mate (who is older) was a massive fan. Anyway, it was a great night and even though he was getting on, he put on a great show.

Fast forward to last month and me and the same mate are at a Calexico gig in London and as part of the encore, they played this.

A cover of Love's Alone again, or...

Was almost spiritually good.

I think this is probably wrong but always preferred this to the real deal.
